Baliram Sukur Jadhav (Marathi: बळीराम सुकुर जाधव) is an Indian politician and a member of the 15th Lok Sabha of India. He represents the Palghar constituency of Maharashtra and is a member of the Bahujan Vikas Aaghadi political party, headed by Hitendra Thakur.

Lok Sabha Elections[edit]

Baliram Jadhav contested the 15th Lok Sabha elections as an independent candidate from the Palghar constituency. He was backed by the strong support of ex-MLA Hitendra Thakur, who gave him the candidature of his political party, Bahujan Vikas Aaghadi (Majority Development Front) which has a strong foothold in the region. Thakur's support and the delimitation of the Palghar constituency, backed with the developmental work done by Jadhav for the tribal region in the past worked in favor of him. He won the seat by gaining a majority of 223234 votes, around 12,360 more than his next counterpart, Advocate Chintaman Vanga of the Bhartiya Janata Party. Seating Member of Parliament, Damodar Barku Shingada of the Indian National Congress was pushed to third, owing majorly to the loss of his votebank in the neighbouring Bhiwandi constituency, post delimitation.[1][2]

Personal life[edit]

Baliram Jadhav was born in the Thane district of Maharashtra. He was born on 2 June 1956 to Sukur and Shalubai Jadhav. He is married to Vanita Baliram Jadhav, who herself had contested for the Thane Zilla Parishad post, but lost to Anita Ramu Dhangda.[3] They have four children, 1 son and 3 daughters. His son, Ganesh Jadhav, works as a peon in the Virar branch of Thane District Cooperative Bank. Modest as he is, he believes that having political power is a great responsibility and must not be misused for personal gains.[4] He himself is a farmer in the Saiwan area of Vasai Taluka in the district of Thane, Maharashtra.

Social works[edit]

He is the member of the Social Justice & Empowerment Committee, in the Lok Sabha since 31 August 2009.[5] It is said that Baliram Jadhav, after giving his unconditional support to the UPA government, played a key role in gaining the approval for the recently created Vasai-Virar Municipal Corporation, a long awaited move for the fastly developing region of Vasai-Virar. He is very active in the tribal region of Vasai. He has many things on his agenda that include upliftment of the adivasi population in the region, solving the water problem in the area, demanding quick installation of the much needed Virar-Dahanu local train services and cutting down the load shedding time in the region.
