The spiritual MP leader, Bhayyuji Maharaj shot himself in his residence. He was admitted to Indore’s Bombay Hospital in the injured state, where he died. The reason for the suicide was not known yet. Bhayyaji Maharaj came to the headlines when he played a vital role in thwarting social activist Anna Hazare’s fast. He had a great connection in politics. Recently, the Shivraj Sarkar gave him the status of the Minister of State. Although he did not accept the proposal of the Madhya Pradesh government and said that the post is not important for the saints, the importance of serving people is for us”.

His real name was Uday Singh Shekhawat, but in Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra, people know him as Bhayyuji Maharaj. He was a spiritual mentor who likes to live a normal household life. Bhayyuji Maharaj was previously a model, leaving his career in modeling, he chose the path of spirituality. He had been work as a model for Siyaram. He was completely different from the other spiritual guru. Sometimes he was seen plowing fields and playing cricket. He was also well versed in horse riding and fencing. He married to Dr. Ayushi on April 13, 2017, at Shivpuri. His first wife, Madhavi, died in November 2015. He has a daughter from his first wife. 

Bhaiyuji Maharaj’s father-in-law was the president of Maharashtra Congress. He had close links with Union Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh and other Government officials. From BJP president Nitin Gadkari to Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat, he is on the list of his devotees. He was seen as a troublemaker in Maharashtra politics. In 2012, During the goodwill fast in Gujarat, PM Narendra Modi invited him. He had a tremendous follow-up between the politicians and businessmen. It can be understood that in 2011 when Anna Hazare, a social activist, had made a fast on the issue of Jan Lokpal Bill in Delhi, then Bhayyaji Maharaj had mediated himself to end it.
