Answer: Chaudhary Charan Singh

Chaudhary Charan Singh was India’s 5th Prime Minister from the July 28 1979 until the  January 14 1980. He was born on December 23, 1902, and passed away on May 29, 1987. Many people, including historians, refer to him as the “champion of India’s peasants.”

Charan Singh was born on December 23 1902, in the village of Noorpur, United Provinces of Agra and Oudh, India, into a rural peasant Hindu Jat family that belonged to the Teotia clan. Charan Singh entered politics after being inspired to do so by Mahatma Gandhi, who was leading the Indian Independence Movement at the time. Since 1931, he was an active member of the Ghaziabad District Arya Samaj as well as the Meerut district Indian National Congress, both of which resulted in his imprisonment by the British authorities on two separate occasions.
