Murli Deora is the Indian Union Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas. He belongs to Rajput Mali community.

He was born in Mumbai, and did his BA from Mumbai University.

The industrialist and social worker-turned-politician began his innings from the Bombay Municipal Corporation way back in 1968 when he was elected corporator . Later, in 1977, Deora was elected mayor of Mumbai with Shiv Sena's support. Known for his close relations with politicians of all political parties, the arts graduate first contested the Lok Sabha polls from Mumbai South constituency in 1980 but lost to the Janata Party's Ratansingh Rajda though, in the subsequent election, Deora defeated BJP's Jayawantiben Mehta by a huge margin. He was re-elected in 1989, 1991 but lost to Mehta in 1996 and 1999 before his son, Milind, defeated Mehta to go to the Lok Sabha from the same constituency in 2004. Deora is a trusted aide of the Gandhi family in Mumbai. He was elected to the Rajya Sabha in 2004 and was inducted in the Union cabinet as petroleum minister in January 2006. His high point was countering the oilmen's strike with an iron fist, breaking his image as a soft person. He did his bit to shield consumers from the impact of oil's high run, but couldn't stop state-run oil companies from going into the red for the first time, posting historical quarterly losses. Appointment of ONGC chairman also became controversial. Deora, who has literally ruled the Mumbai Congress for well over a decade, is closely associated with the Bhartiya Vidya Bhavan and the Indian Red Cross Society.
