Today is 67th Birthday of RJD president and former Railway Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav.

Lalu has a completely different side to his personality. He does not know his actual date of birth and relies on the one given in his educational documents i.e. June 11, 1948.

At the young age of 22, Lalu tasted politics by becoming the general secretary of Patna University Students Union in 1970. He became the pioneer of the student movement in Bihar.

With former Bihar Chief Minister, Satyendra Narayan Sinha's support, Lalu made it to 6th Lok Sabha representing Janata Party.

Lalu was only 29 when he won a seat for the Lok Sabha making him one of the youngest member of Parliament of his time.

There was no looking back for Lalu after that. Lalu's stance in Bihar politics was such that Muslims and Yadavs in Bihar became a sure shot vote bank for Lalu.
