Latest Updates : The Rashtrapati Bhavan declared on Monday that Karpoori Thakur, a well-known socialist leader and former chief minister of Bihar, would get a posthumous Bharat Ratna.

Recognized by his devotees as ‘Jannayak,’ Thakur was renowned for his endeavours to fortify the lower classes.

Thakur, who was born on January 24, 1924, was detained during the Quit India Movement, which opposed the British government. After winning his first election in 1952, he went on to win every other one in the following years.

Karpoori Thakur set the stage for the Mandal Commission report’s implementation in 1990 when he allowed reservations for backward castes in Bihar’s government jobs in 1978.

From December 1970 to June 1971 and December 1977 to April 1979, he held the position of chief minister. On February 17, 1988, Karpoori Thakur passed away.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi honored the socialist leader of Gandhianism. “I am thrilled that the Government of India has chosen to award the Bharat Ratna to the esteemed Jan Nayak Karpoori Thakur Ji, the beacon of social justice, and that too during the centennial celebration of his birth.” This esteemed honor is a monument to his persistent work as an advocate for the underprivileged and a champion of empowerment and equality,” he wrote on social media platform X.
