Who is Vishwaraj Mahadik?
Vishwaraj is the son of BJP MP Dhananjay Mahadik. Former MLA Mahadev Mahadik is Vishwaraj’s cousin. The third generation of the family is seen becoming active in politics in the form of Vishwaraj Mahadikas. Vishwaraj Mahadik was born on 17 May 1996 in Kolhapur. He did his schooling in Kolhapur. Like his wrestler grandfather, he is also over 6 feet tall.
Vishwaraj Mahadik has done Post Graduation in Economics from Boston University, USA. It is considered as one of the top universities worldwide. Dhananjay Mahadika has claimed that Vishwaraj was offered a package of nearly one crore while still in college, but he rejected it and decided to return to Kolhapur.
After working for two years, he decided to return to India. Vishwaraj informed that his father had told him to stay there, but as he was homesick, he decided on his own. I came back in 2019, at that time I saw the failure of Mahadika in the Lok Sabha elections, the problems faced in the factory. Even though he had little interest in politics, he wanted to help in the work of the factory, says Vishwaraj.
Vishwaraj is fond of birds and animals. He understood the problems of the farmers only when he took the axle of the factory on his shoulders. Henceforth, it is reported that they will implement ethanol project in the factory.
