On the 25th of January, Nitin Gadkari extends birthday wishes to Union Minister of State Kaushal Kishore. He said maybe healthy and live long, this is what I wish to God.
Since 7 July 2021, Kaushal Kishore has been serving as the Minister of State for the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs in the Government of India. He is the MP for Mohanlalganj, Uttar Pradesh. The national president of Parakh Mahasangh, he is also the State President of the party’s SC wing. He is a party leader and an activist for social justice issues.
He was born in the village of Begariya, in the Tehsil-Mohanlalganj District of Uttar Pradesh, into the scheduled caste Pasi community, to Shri Kallu Prasad and Smt. Parvati Devi.
Kishore had very few opportunities and resources. Although he wasn’t the best academically, he was always honest and had a curious mind. His villagers believed him to be a brave person. He always stood for the truth and what was right, so they used to say that no one could ever dare to confront him.
His parents used to worry a lot, at times, when he got into other disputes, stood beside those students who were weak, and spoke up for those who were subjected to exploitation and discrimination.
His parents used to say that he loved to invite quarrels and ruckus in order to drive him off from getting into any unwanted situations. When asked why he used to invite problems for himself and his family, he had no answer.
He explains that it was his sense of justice which used to drive him to take on those who used to exploit the weak and poor.
