He learned the hallmarks of Ram Manohar Lohia and Chaudhary Charan Singh and brought it to life. Born in a poor peasant family, Mulayam Singh was a district-level wrestler, but at the age of 15 he had the influence of Lohia’s ideology. At the age of 28, he contested the legislative election for the first time from his political guru Ram Manohar Lohia’s party United Socialist Party in 1967 and managed to win.

In 1974, the Bharatiya Kranti Dal and the United Socialist Party merged and the new party Bharatiya Lok Dal was formed. Mulayam Singh was also involved in this when many opposition parties united against the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and the Janata Party was formed in 1977.
Mulayam was again elected MLA in 1977 through this party and was made a minister in the Ram Naresh Yadav government of Uttar Pradesh.

In this way, Yadav became the Chief Minister of the state for the third time but even once he could not remain the Chief Minister for five years. Mulayam, in his political life, had created an unbreakable political equation with Muslims and Yadavs, on the basis of which he still holds a great position in the state and his party is in the role of opposition party. There was a time in 1996 when Mulayam Singh’s name was in the race for the post of PM, but it is said that the other big Yadav leader Lalu Yadav objected to his name, due to which he fell behind in the race. Later, Mulayam Singh was the defense minister of the country from 1996 to 1998.
