The roots of politics in India are very old. Political activities in India started in Bengal and Maharashtra. Many politicians sacrificed their lives in getting India independence from the British. The Congress party played the biggest role in getting India free from the British. Mahatma Gandhi and the Congress fought against the British rule for independence through non-violent activities for a long time. India eventually gained independence as a result of the Congress’s 52-year struggle against British rule.
It has been more than 70 years since India’s independence. Even today, there are many famous politicians in India who were born during the British rule.
Here are the names of politicians whose age is more than 75 years.
