लाल बहादुर शास्त्री

'लाल बहादुर शास्त्री' जी का जन्म 2 अक्टूबर 1904 को उत्तर प्रदेश के मुगलसराय में हुआ था। उनकी याद में 'शास्त्री जयंती' प्रति वर्ष भारतवर्ष में 2 अक्टूबर को मनाई जाती है।

शास्त्री जी ने स्वतंत्रता आंदोलन में गांधीवादी विचारधारा का अनुसरण करते हुए देश की सेवा की और आजादी के बाद भी अपनी निष्ठा और सच्चाई में कमी नहीं आने दी।

भारत की स्वतंत्रता के पश्चात शास्त्रीजी को उत्तर प्रदेश के संसदीय सचिव के रुप में नियुक्त किया गया था। शास्त्री जी ने 9 जून 1964 को प्रधान मंत्री का पद भार ग्रहण किया। शास्त्रीजी ने देशवासिओं को “जय जवान, जय किसान” का नारा दिया।

आज राजनीति में जहां हर तरफ भ्रष्टाचार का बोलबाला है वहीं शास्त्री जी एक ऐसे उदाहरण थे जो बेहद सादगी पसंद और ईमानदार व्यक्तित्व के स्वामी थे।
