Jaibhan Singh Pawaiya became the second president of the Bajrang Dal in India after Vinay Katiyar and was succeeded by physician Surendra Jain. Pawaiya, a full-time pracharak joined the political wing, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). He was the party's Lok Sabha member in 1999 from Gwalior (Madhya Pradesh), but he lost the polls in 2004 from Gwalior by a very narrow margin. He stoutly defended the Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) and the Bajrang Dal in the March 2002 Ramjanmabhoomi campaign when all BJP leaders were disassociating themselves from the VHP. He defied all party and government orders and went to Ayodhya in March 2002.

Political career[edit]

On December 8, 2013 he was elected as MLA after winning Legislative Assembly elections in Gwalior with 74,769 votes.[1] He will contest 2014 Loksabha election from Guna-Shivpuri on BJP ticket against incumbent MP Jyotiraditya Scindia.
