The height of Prakash Singh Badal’s stature in Indian politics can be gauged from the fact that even Prime Minister Narendra Modi had touched his feet. During his 75 years of political life, Badal became the Chief Minister of Punjab 5 times and won 11 consecutive elections. In 2022, Badal lost his traditional Lambi seat in the elections. After that, he was not very active in politics. When his party, the Shiromani Akali Dal, opposed the agricultural reform laws of the central government, they broke their alliance with the BJP. After this, Prakash Singh Badal returned his Padma Vibhushan award.
