JAGJIVAN RAM

JAGJIVAN RAM

In the Parliament House, opposite the entrance to the Outer Lobby of the Lok Sabha Chamber, is a 9-feet high bronze statue of Babu Jagjivan Ram, an illustrious son of India, a prominent freedom fighter and social reformer, champion of human rights and dignity, an astute statesman and able administrator and above all, a very humane and popular leader.  Affectionately called by the entire nation as "Babuji", Jagjivan Ram dedicated his life in the service of the nation and worked tirelessly for building a casteless and classless society and for the uplift of the downtrodden.  He was a member of the Bihar Legislative Council and the Legislative Assembly.  As a member of the Constituent Assembly, he made invaluable contributions towards framing the liberal and progressive provisions of the Constitution.  He was in the Union Cabinet for thirty years as Minister and was also Deputy Prime Minister during the Janata Party Government.  Whichever Ministries he headed, he left an indelible imprint of his administrative brilliance.  He was also President of the Indian National Congress.

The statue, sculpted by Ram Sutar, was unveiled by the then President of India, Dr. Shanker Dayal Sharma on 25 August 1995.

The statue was donated by the Babu Jagjivan Ram Ashram Trust.
