Sharad Yadav, a former Union minister, dies at the age of 75

Sharad Yadav, a former leader of the JDU, has passed away at 75 years of age. Shubhashini Yadav, Sharad Yadav’s daughter, revealed this information via a tweet. For a very long period, Sharad Yadav’s health was getting worse. He was brought to the Fortis Hospital in Delhi on Thursday night as his condition started to worsen. He took his last breath around nine o’clock.

Sharad Yadav was one of the figures who remained with both Lalu Prasad and Nitish Kumar. However, as his political ties with Nitish Kumar soured, Sharad Yadav became isolated from politics. He was gravely ill, which significantly limited his political activity.

The demise of Sharad Yadav has been gravely mourned by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Rjd leader Lalu Prasad Yadav, Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav, and opposition leader Vijay Sinha.

Between 1999 and 2004, Sharad Yadav served as a union minister in the Atal Bihari Vajpayee administration. He held ministerial positions in several different departments. In 2003, Sharad Yadav deposed the Janata Dal-United (JDU). He also served as the NDA’s convener. After leaving the JD(U), he founded the Loktantrik Janata Dal (LJD) in 2018. Later, He announced his party’s merger with the RJD last year.

Thus, his loss has become a great loss for Indian politics.
