Jayant Chaudhary

Jayant Chaudhary, the leader of the Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD), was one of the 71 ministers who took the oath alongside Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday. He has been designated as the Minister of State (Independent Charge) for the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship and the Minister of State for the Ministry of Education. Chaudhary joined the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), continuing the political legacy of his grandfather, Chaudhary Charan Singh, the 5th Prime Minister of India. Previously, the RLD was in alliance with Akhilesh Yadav’s Samajwadi Party, during which it won eight seats and later secured an additional seat in a by-poll. However, tensions arose between the SP and RLD during the Uttar Pradesh civic polls last year over seat allocations in Nagar Maha panchayats and Nagar panchayats. Currently, the RLD holds nine seats in the Assembly.

Jayant Chaudhary was a member of the 15th Lok Sabha, representing Mathura from 2009 to 2014. His party joined the NDA in March 2024, just before the Lok Sabha elections began. His political career started in 2009 when he was elected the Mathura MP.
