Know how Raghuraj Pratap Singh became Bahubali Raja Bhaiya?
Raja Bhaiya started his political innings in 1993 from Pratapgarh's Kunda assembly seat. At the age of 26, Raja Bhaiya was elected as an Independent MLA for the first time from Kunda.
Raja Bhaiya has also been the Minister for Program Implementation, Sports and Youth Welfare, Prisons, Food, and Logistics, and Stamp and Registration. Recently, in the 2022 UP assembly elections, Raghuraj Pratap Singh alias Raja Bhaiya was elected MLA for the eighth consecutive time from the Kunda assembly of Pratapgarh district.
Raja Bhaiya's name came into the limelight when the then Chief Minister Mayawati got him arrested in 2002 for threatening an MLA. Along with the arrest of Raja Bhaiya, POTA was also imposed on him and his father Uday Pratap Singh.
This whole incident brought the politics of UP to a new turn and since then Raja Bhaiya's attitude towards BSP is well known. While Raja Bhaiya was in jail, many rumors kept flying, only then it came to the discussion that Raja Bhaiya had kept crocodiles in the pond. During a TV interview last year, on the question raised about the rumor of keeping crocodile, Raja Bhaiya had told it was a mere rumor.
