Question

X  murdered Narayana Rao Peshwa in succession conflicts. Narayana Rao's son became the next Peshwa. X was upset with this development and approached the British to resolve the succession conflict. Identify X.
  1. Daulth Rao
  2. Yeshwanth Rao
  3. Ragunatha Rao
  4. Madhav Rao Peshwa


Solution

The correct option is C Ragunatha Rao
Narayana Rao brother of Madhav Rao came to power but was murdered by Ragunatha Rao. This resulted in a conflict over the post of Peshwa. The Maratha federation appointed Madhav Rao II, the son of Narayana Rao as the Peshwa. Raghunatha Rao was upset with this development and  approached the British for support. Differences between Maratha chieftains like Yeshwanth Rao and Daulth Rao along with Peshwa Balaji Rao II led to the Second Anglo-Maratha War.
