Akhilesh Yadav is currently the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh. He is the youngest person to hold this office when he took oath in 2012 at the age of 38.
He is the son of Samajwadi Party president Mulayam Singh Yadav, who served as union defence minister and was thrice the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh.
Akhilesh was born on July 1, 1973 in Saifai, which is located in Etawah district of UP.
He did his schooling from Dholpur Military Scbhool in Rajasthan, and pursued a bachelor’s and master’s degrees in civil environmental engineering at the University of Mysore.
Akhilesh also holds a master’s degree in environmental engineering from the University of Sydney in Australia.
He married Dimple Yadav in 1999, and the couple has two daughters and a son. His wife is a sitting Lok Sabha MP from Kannauj.
Akhilesh made his foray into politics when he was elected to the 13th Lok Sabha from Kannauj through a by-election in 2000.
Four years later, he was re-elected to the 14th Lok Sabha for a second term from the same constituency. He continued his electoral success in the 15th Lok Sabha when he was re-elected for a third term.
In the run-up to the 2012 Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls, Akhilesh was appointed the party’s leader in UP.
He led from the front as the party managed to wrest control of the state from erstwhile Mayawati-led BSP government in the state, following a stupendous victory in the Assembly polls.
Akhilesh took oath as the state’s 20th chief minister on March 15, 2012. Later, he resigned from his Kannauj Lok Sabha seat and became a member of the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Council on May 5, 2012.
Congress on Tuesday announced that it had decided to tie up with Samajwadi Party and that they will form the government in Uttar Pradesh.
