भारत सरकार में प्रथम यादव सचिव बने राजीव यादव
प्रशासन में जब तक किसी समुदाय की उच्च स्तर पर भागीदारी नहीं होगी, वह प्रगति नहीं कर सकता। हम यदुवंशी इस बात पर गर्व करते हैं कि हमारे तमाम लोग शासन-प्रशासन में छाये हुए हैं, पर आपको जानकर बेहद आश्चर्य होगा कि सितंबर, 2015 में जाकर किसी यादव को केंद्र सरकार में सचिव पद सँभालने का मौका मिला है। हाल ही में खेल सचिव के पद पर नियुक्त राजीव यादव, अब तक के इतिहास में प्रथम यादव सचिव हैं। यदुकुल की तरफ से ढेरों बधाइयाँ !
