The story of Chirag Paswan is one interesting tale. Currently, a minister in Prime Minister Narendra Modi‘s 3.0 cabinet, Chirag has also been crowned as the Internet’s newest crush. Did you know he was once an aspiring actor? He gave up acting to pursue a career in politics. Hailing from the Lok Janshakti Party (LJP), Paswan is the son of the late Ram Vilas Paswan, who founded the LJP in 2000.

Facing a dark tunnel with his uncle walking away with the Lok Janshakti Party’s symbol and MPs, Chirag faced quite a lot of difficulties. From that to being sworn in as a member of the new Union cabinet as the representative of the Hajipur Lok Sabha constituency, Paswan has scripted a Bollywood-like turnaround.

However, the film did not perform well at the box office, leading Paswan to leave the film industry and pursue a career in politics in 2012.

Political Career

Chirag Paswan’s political journey began in 2012 when he joined the Lok Janshakti Party (LJP). Two years later, in 2014, he contested and won the Lok Sabha elections from Jamui constituency in Bihar. This seat holds historical significance for Paswan, as his father represented it eight times since his first victory in 1977. 

During his tenure as an MP, he served on several parliamentary committees and held the position of chairman of LJP’s Central Parliamentary Board. Chirag played a crucial role in forming an alliance with the BJP in 2014. In 2019, he was re-elected from the Jamui constituency and later that year, he was elected as the national president of the LJP.
