() (6 October 1930 – 3 June 2011) was a politician and two-time chief minister
from the northern Indian
state of Haryana
Bhajan Lal was born on October 6, 1930 in Koranwali, Bahawalpur District
, now in Punjab
in a Bishnois
sub-caste, and has two sons, Chander Mohan Bishnoi
, who converted to Islam in December 2008 so he could marry his "love", and became Chand Mohammad
(but eventually converted back to Hinduism in 2009) and Kuldeep Bishnoi
. He started his political career by becoming a 'Panch' in the Adampur Gram Panchayat. Later he became the Sarpanch of the same.
Bhajan Lal was the chief minister of the Haryana state twice, his first term from June 28, 1979 to July 5, 1985, and his second term from July 23, 1991 to May 11, 1996. He had also served as a union cabinet minister at the centre, holding the Agriculture and Environments & Forest portfolios during Rajiv Gandhi's administration. He has been a central point in Haryana politics, representing the non-Jat
caste groups of the state.he was a mass leader of Haryana, to whom each community loves. But there is one quote that every Political life ends with a failure!!
The victory of the Indian National Congress
in Haryana's 2005 elections caused a major rift in its state unit, as it opted to make Bhupinder Hooda
, a Jat, the Chief Minister instead of Bhajan. In 2007, Lal officially announced he would form a new party, called the Haryana Janhit......
