Arun Subhashchandra Yadav
The Jawaharlal Nehru Hockey Tournament Society is
glad to announce that Sri Arun Subhashchandra Yadav
has graciously agreed to join the Society as its
President, the post having fallen vacant to the
sad demise of Sri Ram Niwas Mirdha, who had breathed
his last on January 29 of this year. Shri Yadav
will be the fifth personality to be the president
of the Society since its formation in 1964 under
the President ship of the Union Law Minister, Shri
Ashoke Kumar Sen. Since then the other two exalted
personalities who headed the organization were Shri
Y.B. Chavan and Sri Sharad Pawar.
Hailing from a humble farming background in Borawan,
Khargone in Madhya Pradesh in the year 1974, Shri
Arun Subhashchandra Yadav has risen to emerge as
a Union Minister of State for Heavy Industries and
Public Enterprises in the UPA Government, through
hard work and public services.
Shri Yadav got his B.Com degree from S.S. Subodh
Jain Commerce College, Jaipur(Rajasthan). He was
elected to the 14th Lok Sabha in a Bye-election
from Khandwa in his native State of Madhya Pradesh
in 2007 and was re-elected to the 15th Lok Sabha
for a second term in 2009. Shri Yadav also serves
as a Member of the Committee on Public Accounts.
Multi-personality, Shri Yadav is deeply involved
and engages himself in several social and cultural
activities. He also has keen interest in literature
and art. Presently he is running an engineering
school under a Trust to provide education to the
poor and downtrodden SC/ST people in the Nimar region
of Madhya Pradesh.
The 36 year old Union Minister is also a keen sports
lover and follows several sports disciplines. He
regularly plays and watches cricket, badminton and
hockey matches and follows the Indian team’s
progress, in particular the national game of hockey
in global competitions, despite his heavy official
engagements. The Khandwa M.P. is a man of many virtues
and he done each cap with equal passion.
The Nehru Hockey Society has reason to believe that
this youth icon, who has innovative ideas, foresight
and experience in administration, political, social
farming and library world, will be an ideal leader
to lead the Society to grow from strength to strength
without ant let or hindrance. His age being on his
side, he is defined to play a longer innings.
