Kalyan Singh: Indian politician
Kalyan Singh is a former Governor of Rajasthan. He took additional charge of Himachal Pradesh replacing Urmila Singh, whose five-year term ended on 24 January 2015. Prior to that, he was an Indian politician of the Bharatiya Janata Party from the state of Uttar Pradesh. Kalyan Singh was born to Tejpal Singh Lodhi and Sita on 5 January 1932. He has served two terms as the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh and was appointed Governor of Rajasthan on 26 August 2014. Kalyan Singh is known for his role in the Babri Masjid demolition. Addressing reporters in Etah, Kalyan Singh once said that he owns full responsibility for the demolition of the 16th-century mosque in Ayodhya on 6 December 1992, thus reigniting the controversial Ram Janmabhoomi dispute. During a speech at the 26th convocation ceremony, he appealed against the word ‘Adhinayak’, saying it should be replaced by 'Mangal'.
