Q.279

This political strongman from the Muzzafarnagar district of UP passed away in May this year. Apart from being the president of the Bharatiya Kisan Union (which he created), he was also the "chaudhury" of a khap panchayat. Not surprisingly, his political and social views were at odds with more urban and mainstream thought.

In the late 80s, he shot to prominence for a series of high-profile agitations on farmer issues; the most famous being held at Meerut and a sit-in at the Delhi Boat Club, with a large force of unrelenting farmers.

Who was this politician?
