Impressive career

Chhagan Bhujbal’s political career has been impressive. A fighter, Chhagan Bhujbal showed singular aggression, hogging limelight and headlines, against the entire ruling benches as a lone Shiv Sena legislator all of the five years from 1985. That laid the basis for the party’s enthusiasm to contest and win 52 seats in 1990. That convinced the Sena that it could be in legislative politics, outside of just civic politics of Mumbai and Thane. 61-year-old Bhujbal was the Deputy Chief Minister in the first Congress-NCP government sworn-in in 1999.

Chhagan Bhujbal (born October 15, 1947) is a politician from the state of Maharashtra, India. Chhagan Bhujbal is one of the leaders of the Nationalist Congress Party, and is currently the Public Works Minister of Maharashtra and going to be Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra for the second time.

It is not difficult to get a fix on the real Chhagan Bhujbal. Bhujbal is the fiery orator, barely audible in one-to-one conversations, the grassroots leader, powerful deputy chief minister, the loyalist, the opportunist, the rabble-rouser, the peacemaker. Or he is all of these depending on the situation. All these qualities make him the real public leader. He leads from the front not only the Marathi’s but also The OBC’s.

Bhujbal adapts, accepts, and assimilates. That is why he is still in circulation while some of his contemporaries in the Shiv Sena, where he started his political journey more than 39 years ago, have faded away.

A True Leader

Bhujbal, who has emerged as a key leader of Other Backward Classes (OBCs) in Maharashtra. He has raised voice against the Assaults on Biharis in Maharashtra and Uttar Bhartiya. Assaults on Biharis in Maharashtra on the issue of their recruitment to Railways is totally wrong and people, while agitating, should express their views peacefully, Mr. Chhagan Bhujbal said.

In the mean time of Telgi Scam, he did not lose his peace, as he knew the truth surely come in front real judges (public). Nothing was proved. The Investigating Team said that there was no evidence against him and the Political parties targeted him.
