A trusted lieutenant of late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, H R Bhardwaj staged a comeback in his political career after eight long years.

A Congressman to the core and a member of National Executive of Indian Youth Congress from 1957, Bhardwaj had stood like a rock behind Gandhi during the post-emergency black days for the Congress when he had defended then party supremo in many cases.

The 67-year-old party veteran was holding the post of Minister of State for Law, Justice and Company Affairs in the Congress Government headed by Narasimha Rao during 1991-96.

In 1982, he was elected Rajya Sabha marking the beginning of a long innings in the central politics. Three years after his entry into the House of Elders, the politician from Haryana was rewarded with a place in the Council of Ministers headed by Rajiv Gandhi where he held the post for Minister of State for Law and Justice from 1985 to 1989.
