Lajja Ram Ji hailed from a humble background and was born to a family of farmers. Looking nostalgically back at the fifteen glorious years for which he led the gram panchayat of Baddi as the Sarpanch before the forming of municipal corporation, today, we celebrate the several decisions that he made for the community welfare.

He went on to take up other roles including that of the Director of Joginder Central Cooperative Bank Nalagarh, Solan and the role of Director of Tehsil Union, Nalagarh.

He was elected to Himachal Assembly from Doon in 1990 as a Janta Dal candidate when he won the elections with high margins and later joined the Congress and retained the seat in 1993, 1998 and 2003.The senior congress leader and four-time MLA.

During his last tenure he was leading the HP government as Chief parliamentary secretariat H.P. Govt. He always worked with great dedication & determination.He was grounded, soft spoken and a visionary. Driven by his passion, his efficiency, ethics and hard work he proved his mettle by triggering a revolutionary industrial growth in Baddi which transformed the barren hills to an industrial boon and instilled the confidence of a better tomorrow in the minds of industrialists. He supported different industries with the much needed development and created an environment replete of opportunities. He gave a prospective and resourceful atmosphere to Baddi which highly influenced the growth factor of the industry in a positive direction.

Some of the biggest industries of the time established and flourished during his tenure. Vardhman which has seen immense growth from 1 to 9 units was one such corporate. The political stability and harmony was the major reason behind such a wonderous achievement. Chaudhary Lajja Ram ji extended his positive support as a leader and ensured that the industry had to face no political pressures.

The government employees and staff were also given a peaceful and liberal work environment so that they could work without pressures and in a cordial atmosphere.

My mission and vision


My mission and vision have always guided me as my daily mantra towards applying ethical
principles and making a significant difference in the lives of people I serve.

Build Bright Futures – Education

Our youth is the biggest asset that we have and I firmly believe that every young person can be motivated to become a positive force for change in their own life, and the lives of others. Great impetus must be put into youth development through various programmes and the right academic education, and I intend to initiate programmes centred on youth development empowerment and learning.

Infrastructure Development

The prosperity of a country depends on the development of infrastructure. Cities are the engine of economic growth – and infrastructure development is the fuel for that engine. My top notch priority in this direction lies to strengthen both the physical infrastructure like roads for transportation, power and communication and social infra including water supply, sanitation, sewage, safety, education and health.

Healthcare

Ensuring healthy life for all at all ages needs strengthening of health systems, and that is my prime agenda. We have formulated various plans to make sure that we meet our goals to promote health, upgrade health centres and hospitals with the latest, state-of-the-art facilities and infrastructure.

Water Infrastructure

Water is a basic human right and for my people of Doon we have plans to build robust water supply systems in order to satisfy their needs. We are well aware that how the poor access to a clean and reliable water supply, for drinking or irrigation limits the abilities of our people to achieve their human potential. Working in positive direction we will leave no stone unturned to improve the water infrastructure through our various new models.

Sports and Recreation

Sports inculcates the positive abilities that can be transferrerd to all life situations. Various important attributes like teamwork, patience, learning to respect other's opinions, abilities and ideas, staying focused, and maintaining confidence are just few to name that reveal the character of the person. Therefore to foster the development of positive character and values I will initiate the measures to improve sporting facilities and ensure that they are more accessible at all levels.

Political Journey


Driven by my passion to serve my nation I always ensured that my journey was designed
to point new possibilities and new doorways to bring out the best solutions to the problems of the people who had entrusted their faith in me.
