Yajeeji strongly advocated for socialist ideology. He believed that by the mean of socialism, we could achieve all round prosperity and can control major problems. He even rejoined Congress or merged All India Forward Bloc in Congress only after the party has adoptoted ‘socialistic pattern of society’ resolution in Awadi session, 1955.
His human-inclusive approached was clearly visible in his pledge that not to accept any ministerial post. After merger of AIFB in Congress, Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru affectionately told him, “You will have a good future in politics.”
He, immediately, replied, “Do you wish to make me a Minister one day, but it is my conviction that I should not accept any ministerial post in my life.” Than Nehruji requested him to not make any hard and fast rules like that, Yajeeji again said, “no.”
This showed Yajeeji’s determination and commitment for welfare of weaker section of society. He always stood with the weak and fought for justice. He was a real ‘socialist saint’.
He was a follower and believer of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. He always favoured Bose’s socialistic approach. Therefore, many times he placed strong support for a resolution inspired by Netaji’s socialistic thinking in Congress sessions. But failed all time. Meanwhile, he never got disappointed and kept his socialistic zeal alive till his last breath.
The Resolution was

The Indian people accepted this challenge by giving massive two-thirds majority to the Congress (I) reaffirmed their faith in the Congress(I).
