Dr. Raman, strong in the BJP’s national organization, was replaced by a phone call.

The most successful leader for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is definitely the current Prime Minister Narendra Modi. For the first time, BJP formed the government of absolute majority at the Center. For this, the party gives credit to PM Modi. The record of BJP’s political success was made during Modi’s tenure. But, can you tell, what is the BJP’s name which is not Modi’s name? This achievement is recorded on the name of a leader who was almost missing from the national pane. That leader is the name of former Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh Dr Raman Singh. Yes yes Raman Singh was the Chief Minister with the longest tenure in BJP history. Even after the BJP’s bad defeat in Chhattisgarh, the party has now made him a national vice-chancellor.

BJP’s Raman Singh, who has long been the longest tenure of Chief Ministers, includes Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Modi is CM of Gujarat till becoming Prime Minister from 2001 to 2014 The neighboring state of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan has been in office since 2005. But, Shivraj Singh is the leader of a political party more than the Chief Minister Raman Singh before him.

A phone call changed luck
Regarding the political success of Dr. Raman Singh, it is said that a phone call changed his fortunes. Dr. Raman was the Union Minister of State in the government of Atal in 2000. The first Assembly election was to be held in 2003 after the creation of Chhattisgarh. In three years the Congress was strengthened under the leadership of Ajit Jogi, but there was scarcity in BJP. Let us state that in such a situation, then BJP national president Venkaiah Naidu should give command of the state BJP to two senior MPs Ramesh Bai and Dilip Singh Judeo, but they are not ready. After this, Naidu called and talked to Dr. Raman and gave him responsibility. Then in the elections of 2003, the BJP won 50 of the 90 seats and Raman Singh became the first elected Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh.

How is the political journey
Dr. Raman Singh was born on October 15, 1952 in a farming family in village Chhathapur (now Rampur) in present-day Kabirdham (Kawardha) district of Chhattisgarh.

Raman Singh started his political career as a youth member of the Indian Jana Sangh. Raman Singh was a member of the Madhya Pradesh Assembly in 1990 and 1993. After that he was elected a member of Lok Sabha in 1999.

Increased political stature in the 1999 election
After winning the Lok Sabha elections from Rajnandgaon, Chhattisgarh, in 1999, his political career got a new dimension. The then prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee made him minister of state for commerce and industry in his government. When the first election of Chhattisgarh was decided in the state in 2003, then the Bhartiya Janata Party came to find a person who could mobilize party organization in the crucial months before the elections.

This responsibility was entrusted to Dr. Raman Singh, who was well-equipped with the capacity and organization of the organization. For the first time, BJP has had major success in Chhattisgarh assembly elections. On December 1, 2003, in the history of Chhattisgarh, the BJP was recorded as the Vijay Divas. Dr. Raman Singh became the first elected chief minister of Chhattisgarh. Since then, he remained in office for 15 years. Now the party has given him new responsibility of the organization.
