The district of Raebareli, which was created by the British in 1858, is named after its headquarters town. Tradition has it that the town was founded by the Bhars and was known as Bharauli or Barauli which in course of time got corrupted into Bareli. The prefix, Rae, is said to be a corruption of Rahi, a village 5km. west of the town. It is also said that the prefix, Rae, represents Rae, the common title of the Kayasths who were masters of the town for a considerable period of time.
Since about the begining of the media level period of indian history the region in the south of which the area covered by the district of Raebareli lies has been known as avadh or subhah of avadh. In the north it streched as far as the foothills of the Himmalays and in the south as far as the Ganga beyond which lay the Vatsa country. There is no doubt that the district has been civilised and settled life since very early times.
The Quit India movement was inagurated on August 8, 1942 and the district did not lag behind any others. Again there was mass arrests, imposition of collective fines, lathi charges and police firing. At Sareni the police opened fire at an agitated crowed, killing and maiming many. The people of this district enthusiastically respond to the call of individual Satyagragha and large numbers courted arrest. At last, on August 15,1947, the country shook off the foreign yoke and achieved its long-awaited independence. Raebareli celeberated the event with benefiting glee and rejoicing in every home along with the rest of the country.

Modi Government has unleashed its might to silence & finish the opposition parties.

These are difficult times for India and for our democracy.

But we will fight this and overcome the challenges that the country faces, together


Vaikom Satyagraha has the unique distinction of being one of the most powerful & potent mass movements against caste discrimination.

It had the blessings of Gandhi ji & Shri Narayan Guru.

Honoured to inaugurate the
#VaikomSatyagrahaCentenary celebrations in Kerala today.


परिंदे का घोंसला तो उजाड़ दोगे,
उसका हौसला कैसे छीन पाओगे


Nirav Modi, Lalit Modi & Mehul Choksi do not belong to the OBC community. The BJP is pushing false propaganda by calling Rahul Ji's statement an insult to OBCs. The immediate action against Rahul ji reflects the brutal vindictiveness of PM Modi.

Rahul Gandhi' jis disqualification was the darkest day for Indian democracy. There are various legal issues in the judgment of the trial court. The Modi government deliberately allowed this exercise to play out.
