Mohan Yadav, a highly educated yet low-profile leader


Mohan Yadav – who was sworn in as Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister here on Wednesday after being unanimously chosen as the state BJP Legislature Party leader on Monday – is believed to be the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s choice as well.

Born on March 25, 1965 in Poonamchand Yadav’s family at the ancient temple town Ujjain, abode of the world-renowned Mahakaleshwar shrine – Yadav, who has since served as Higher Education Minister in the Shivraj Singh Chouhan Council, specialises in accomplishing missions while maintaining a low profile.

Yadav is an alumnus of the Vikram University, Ujjain and possesses BSc, LLB, MA (Political Science) and MBA degrees in addition to a doctorate. His spouse is Seema, and the couple has two sons and a daughter. His interests include tourism, culture, history, science, and sports.

He entered the political sphere when he was elected Secretary during the student union election at Ujjain’s Madhav Science College in 1982. A couple of years later, Yadav became associated with the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad and shouldered several key responsibilities.

From 2000–03, he was Ujjain District General Secretary of the BJP. In 2013, he was made Chairman of the State Tourism Development Corporation and elevated to Cabinet rank. That very year he became an MLA from Ujjain South, which he has been representing ever since. The higher Education portfolio was bestowed on July 2, 2020.
