Lucknow, February 9

Rashtriya Lok Dal president Jayant Chaudhary on Friday said the Centre won his heart with the announcement of Bharat Ratna to former Prime Minister Chaudhary Charan Singh.

“Dil Jeet Liya,” he posted on X.

Jayant Chaudhary is the grandson of Charan Singh, a famed farmers’ champion.

The matter also came up in the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Assembly, where Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav, Speaker Satish Mahana, and Parliamentary Affairs minister Suresh Khanna hailed the decision and lauded the farmers’ leader.

The RLD chief hailed the decision on X in a one-line comment in Devnagari.

Former prime ministers P V Narasimha Rao and Chaudhary Charan Singh, as well as agriculture scientist M S Swaminathan will be honoured with the Bharat Ratna, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced on Friday.

“Bharat Ratna to Charan Singh dedicated to his incomparable contribution to the country,” he said.

Charan Singh served as the fifth Prime Minister of India between July and August in 1979.

He also served as the Chief Minister of UP on two occasions -- from April 3, 1967, to February 25, 1968, and from February 18, 1970, to October 1, 1970.
