nationalist, social reformer and freedom
fighter. After hearing a speech of mahatma
Gandhi at Varanasi in 1915, he dedicated his
life to the service of the country. He also
dropped his surname Srivastava as it
indicated his caste and he was against the
caste system. During the non-cooperation
movement of mahatma Gandhi in 1921, he
joined processions in defiance of the
prohibitory order. He was arrested but let
off as he was a minor.

into
the
freedom
struggle during mahatma Gandhi's salt

obtain
compromises
between
opposing
viewpoints. But in his short tenure he was
ineffectual in dealing with the economic crisis
and food shortage in the nation however, he
commanded a great deal of respect in the Indian
populace, and he used it to gain advantage in
pushing the green revolution in India, which
directly led to India become a food surplus
nation, although he did not live to see it. During
the 22-day war with Pakistan, Lal bhadur shastri
created the slogan of “Jai Jawan Jai Kisan”
(“HAIL THE SOLDIER, HAIL THE FARMER”) ,
