ABOUT KAMAL NATH

An internationally acclaimed politician and senior Congress leader, Kamal Nath was born on 18th Nov 1946 in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh. A naive 24-year-old, St. Xavier College graduate embarked on his journey to Indian politics in the late 1970s. After a decade-long hard work and diligence, the first national level recognition came to him much to his credit as he got elected to Lok Sabha in 1980. Campaigning for him during this election, the late Iron Lady of India Smt.Indira Gandhi told the people of Chhindwara that "I am giving you my son". Ever since the early 1980's his journey has been unstoppable which reflects in his winning streak in 1985, 1989, 1991 and finally getting inducted into the cabinet in 1991. An astounding fact about Kamal Nath is that he holds a record of being continuously elected to Lok Sabha 9 times, the only person to do so in the history of Indian National Congress and India’s politics.
