Parkash Singh Badal’s political career began in 1947 when he was appointed as the Sarpanch of the Village Badal and later went on to serve as the Chairman of Block Samiti, Lambi. He was first elected to the Punjab Vidhan Sabha in 1957 as a member of the Shiromani Akali Dal political party. He was re-elected in 1969 and served as the Minister for Community Development, Panchayati Raj, Animal Husbandry, Dairying, and Fisheries.

Badal proved to be a formidable opponent as he went on to become the Leader of Opposition in 1972, 1980, and 2002. He was elected to the Vidhan Sabha ten times, beginning with his first election in 1957, and winning every election since 1969, except for the February 1992 election in which he led a boycott of state elections by the Akalis. In the 1997 elections, he won from the Lambi Assembly constituency and was a consecutive winner for four terms.

Badal’s political career also included serving as a Union Minister in Prime Minister Morarji Desai’s government in 1977. He held the position of Minister of Agriculture and Irrigation during his tenure. Throughout his career, Badal proved to be a stalwart of Punjab politics, and his contributions to the region will be remembered for years to come.

Badal was associated with the Shiromani Akali Dal, a political party in Punjab, and served as its president for many years. He played a significant role in the growth and development of the party, which became one of the most influential political forces in the region.

Badal’s contributions to Punjab did not go unnoticed. He was honored with several awards and recognitions, including the Padma Vibhushan, the second-highest civilian award in India, in 2015.

While Badal’s career was not without controversy, his commitment to public service and his dedication to the people of Punjab remained unwavering.
