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.

Known for his professional approach, modern outlook and ability to think-big, Mahajan had made it a point to ensure that all the facilities offered by the Knowledge-Excellence Centre at Uttan are of international standards be it from training sessions and research assistance to amenities and ambiance.

He was the main pillar of support for RMP for 16 long years positioned as the Chairman of the organization and nurtured it like his own child. Even while providing his visionary inputs for bringing perfection in the workings of the organization, he ensured that RMP office bearers enjoy ample functional autonomy. This encouraged active participation at every level and a healthy exchange of new ideas. It was due to his efforts that RMP could successfully seek UN recognition as an NGO in Special Consultative Status.

Though Pramod Mahajan’s mark on Indian politics is undoubted, his contribution to the institutional development of Rambhau Mhalgi Prabodhini (RMP) is also something singularly unique.
