Sabit Ram Yadav

Shravasti, Uttar Pradesh

April 02, 2024 to April 02, 2026

Sabit Ram Yadav was born at Jamunaha Village, thanaBhinga in the Shrawasti district of Uttar Pradesh. His father, the late Shri MunshiRamdhan Yadav, hailed from his native land where he received his primary education before embracing farming as his occupation.

Inspired profoundly by Mahatma Gandhi's ideology, he ardently participated in the Civil Disobedience Movement of 1930, enduring imprisonment as a consequence. Undeterred, he resumed his revolutionary endeavors upon release. During the Quit India Movement in August 1942, led by Gandhi Ji, he fearlessly joined the cause, facing arrest and further imprisonment, along with a monetary fine.

Confined initially in Behraich Jail and later transferred to Camp Jail Lucknow, his resilience remained steadfast. In recognition of his significant contributions to the freedom movement, Prime Minister Smt. Indira Gandhi honored him with a 'Copper Plate' on behalf of the nation.

His legacy endures, marked by his unwavering commitment to the nation's freedom struggle.

Sabit Ram Yadav passed away on 4 September 1988.
