Dr. Shyama Prasad Mukherjee
Dr. Shyama Prasad Mookerjee was a founding member of the Bharatiya Jana Sangh, whose election symbol was Deepak. It was under the leadership of Mukherjee that the Jana Sangh opposed the partition of India. Let us tell you that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was later formed from the Jan Sangh itself. After the Emergency imposed by Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, a new party 'Janata Party' was formed by merging the major political parties of India including Jana Sangh. Although Shyama Prasad Mookerjee was part of the first Union Cabinet, he criticized the policies of the Congress government.
He later resigned from the cabinet on the issue of Jammu and Kashmir. On 8 May 1953, Mukherjee set out on a visit to Jammu and Kashmir, where he was arrested and died in prison on 23 June 1953. Ever since Jawaharlal Nehru rejected the demand for an inquiry into his death, the answer to the question as to what happened to Syama Prasad Mookerjee in the room in Kashmir in which he was placed under house arrest has been lost in the dark.
