Amaravati: Former Prime Minister of India, Bharat Ratna, Lal Bahadur Shastri, who inspired the people of the country by saying Jai Jawan Jai Kisan, is today. Sharada Prasad Srivastava was born on 2nd October 1904 to Ramadularidevi in Mughalsarai. He completed his education in East Central Railway Inter College, Harish Chandra High School. Shastri’s thoughts were influenced by reading about Swami Vivekananda, Mahatma Gandhi and Anibesant. Influenced by Gandhi’s speeches, Shastri joined the Indian independence movement in the 1920s. Served as President of Servants of People Society. After independence in 1947, Lal Bahadur Shastri took charge of Prime Minister Nehru’s cabinet in the Government of India. First as Railways Minister (1951-56) and later as Home Minister, he held various other responsibilities. After assuming the responsibilities as the Prime Minister, many reforms were undertaken for the interest of the country. Recognizing the need to increase India’s food production, Shastri encouraged the Green Revolution in India in 1965. This led to an increase in the production of food grains, especially in the states of Punjab, Haryana, and Uttar Pradesh. Shasri led the country in the Second India-Pakistan War. At that time the slogan “Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan” (“Hail to the soldier; Hail to the farmer”) became popular during the war. The war officially ended on 10 January 1966 with the Tashkent Declaration..due to some conspiracy? The next day Shastri died in Russia?
