Shri 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.
