Bhupendra Singh Chaudhary is the Minister for Panchayati Raj in UP.

The Bharatiya Janata party (BJP) on Thursday appointed Uttar Pradesh cabinet minister Bhupendra Singh Chaudhary as the party’s chief in the state. His appointment is seen as the BJP’s attempt to reach out to the influential Jat community.

Here are five points about Bhupendra Singh Chaudhary:

  1. Mr Chaudhary was born in Mahendra Sikandarpur village in Moradabad in 1966 and completed his school education from there.

  2. His political career started in 1991, when he joined the BJP. Before joining the party, he was associated with the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP).

  3. Mr Chaudhary fought election against Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav in 1999, but lost.

  4. He became a member of the state’s legislaive council (MLC) in 2016, and was given the charge of Panchayati Raj ministry after the BJP government came to power in the state in 2017.

  5. With Mr Chaudhary’s appointment, UP has become the third state where the BJP will be headed by a Jat leader, after O P Dhankar in Haryana and Satish Poonia in Rajasthan.
