Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath‘s younger brother Shailendra Mohan is a subedar in the Indian Army. He is currently deployed on the Line of Actual Control with China near Mana border in the Garhwal Scouts unit.
Notably, the Garhwal Scouts unit employs only locals as soldiers to guard the mountainous borders. In the wake of growing threats of incursion by the China Army present on the other side of the border, the Mana border near the LoC holds strategic importance to India.
Shailendra Mohan is too fond of his elder brother Yogi Adityanath and is extremely proud of his association with the Indian Army. He is determined to do anything to protect his motherland.
Subedar Mohan however, regrets not being able to get time to meet the saint-politician. He informed that the last time when he had met his brother was in Delhi after he took over as the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh.
Speaking about Yogi Adityanath, subedar Mohan said that the head of the Gorakhnath Peeth is also known as ‘Maharaj Ji’ in the family. Comparing himself with Adityanth, he said that both of them are serving the nation in a way or the other. While one is performing duties towards the nation as the CM of UP, other is an Army man.
Talking about his elder brother, Mohan said that Yogi Adityanath, who also heads the Gorakhnath Peeth, had once asked him to serve the motherland to the best of his ability.
Yogi Adityanath has three brothers – Manvendra Mohan, who is elder to him, and Shailendra and Mahendra Mohan being the younger ones.
