Kisan Diwas

Kisan Diwas is widely celebrated in India on December 23rd. The holiday is dedicated to farmers and is dedicated to the birthday of Chaudhary Charan Singh, the fifth prime minister of the state. The date is celebrated on a large scale and with great enthusiasm!


Charan Singh was born into a simple peasant family in 1902. He graduated from high school and was admitted to the University of Agra to study law, and later took up his own business in Ghaziabad. During the period of Indian independence, the man’s career suffered greatly due to open opposition to the incumbent prime minister, but in 1967 Charan created his own party. In 1975, a state of emergency was declared in the country, and the man was subjected to repression. After 2 years, he was rehabilitated and began to lead the post of Minister of the Interior.

In 1979 he lost the support of the government and resigned. After 5 years, the man had a stroke and soon died. The politician paid great attention to the development of agriculture. Over the years, he improved the situation of the peasants, so he enjoyed great respect. He was especially honored in the state in which he was born – Uttar Pradesh. No wonder his personality became fundamental on National Day.
