Jaipur. Bhanwar Lal Sharma, one of the senior-most MLAs in Rajasthan’s politics and recognized as the biggest leader of Brahmin society, ‘Rajasthan ki politics ko dado’, died on Sunday at the age of 77. He was always the first choice of the people of Sardar city. Bhanwar Lal Sharma became MLA from Sardar city seven times.
Bhanwar Lal Sharma was the only leader to be involved in trying to topple or save the government thrice in Rajasthan. Whether it was an attempt to save Bhairon Singh Shekhawat’s government in 1990 or 1996 in the early stages of politics or in 2020, Sachin Pilot’s revolt against Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot (Sachin Pilot Supporter Bhanwar Lal) was among the 19 leaders who cooperated. In fact, Bhanwar Lal Sharma will be considered no less than Chanakya of Rajasthan politics. Bhanwar Lal Sharma became a constant MLA from 1985 to 2018, and even when the Modi wave was going on in the country in 2013, Bhanwar Lal Sharma was among the 21 MLAs who won despite the Modi wave.
Saved Bhairon Singh government in 1990: In March 1990, a joint front government of BJP and Janata Dal was formed under the leadership of Bhairon Singh Shekhawat. In which Bhanwarlal Sharma also joined as the MLA of Janata Dal. Who was also made the Deputy Chief Whip of the Legislative Assembly. At the same time, he also became the cabinet minister of the Indira Gandhi Canal Project Department from 1990 to 92. In the year 1990, when Advani was taking out his Rath Yatra, seven Janata Dal ministers resigned in protest against it and the Dharam Singh government was reduced to a minority. But in November 1990, 22 Janata Dal MLAs led by Digvijay Singh separated and formed Janata Dal Digvijay and supported the BJP, which saved the government of Bhairon Singh Shekhawat. Bhanwar Lal Sharma played an important role in this whole matter.
In 1996, there were allegations of toppling the government of Bhairon Singh Shekhawat: Where Bhanwar Lal Sharma tried to save the chair of Bhairon Singh Shekhawat in the period of 1990, in 1996 he was also accused of toppling the same Bhairon Singh Shekhawat’s government. When the BJP government was formed in Rajasthan under the leadership of Bhairon Singh in 1993, six other independent MLAs of the Janata Dal also supported it. Bhanwar Lal Sharma joined the BJP before the election, but later he was thrown out of the party due to allegations of Bhanwar Lal Sharma collaborating with the BJP and other MLAs to destabilize the Bhairon Singh government. However, in 1996 he also won the by-election.
Bhanwarlal Sharma became MLA for the seventh time in 2018: In 2018, Bhanwarlal Sharma joined the party (Chanakya of Rajasthan Politics) as an MLA for the seventh time. But Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot did not give him a ministerial post despite his seniority. Pandit Bhanwar Lal Sharma, who was already angry with Gehlot, took Sachin Pilot’s hand and when Sachin Pilot revolted against Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot in 2020, he was among the 18 associate MLAs of Pilot in that revolt, who joined the Gehlot government. Angered by this, he went to Manesar.
Bhanwarlal was an important part of the political upheaval of 2020: Pandit Bhanwar Lal Sharma was also among the 18 Congress MLAs who supported Pilot during the political upheaval of Rajasthan in 2020. On July 14, Sachin Pilot, who was the then State President and Deputy Chief Minister, along with ministers Vishvendra Singh and Ramesh Meena were sacked for taking all these MLAs to Manesar in the month of July 2020. After this an alleged audio tape went viral. In which a voice was allegedly believed to be of Pandit Bhanwar Lal Sharma.
This was the reason why he was suspended from the party for 6 years for toppling the government and allegedly involved in horse-trading. However, this suspension was later withdrawn, while this dispute started coming to an end, on August 10, Bhanwar Lal Sharma reached Jaipur without informing anyone and he directly met the Chief Minister and gave his support to the Chief Minister.
