Late Pramod Mahajan, the former Union Minister, parliamentarian and senior leader of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had played a key role in developing RMP to its present status and glory. From humble beginnings in a small office at Wadala in South Mumbai to the sprawling 15 acres, international standard training facility (Knowledge-Excellence Centre) in Bhayander, Mahajan truly brought in a lion’s share for the growth and development of RMP.
A master of public relations, Mahajan’s efforts helped RMP reach across various sections of society including elected representatives, civil society, business houses, bureaucrats and media. Pramod Mahajan sincerely believed in the concept behind RMP and on several occasions he stressed the need for building the capacities of politicians, especially those elected at public positions. He was a continuous source of encouragement and an ideal mentor for all the functionaries of RMP. His untimely demise in 2006 was like the loss of the head of their family for everyone at the Prabodhini.
