He was a politician who later rose to a fearsome image in Chhatarpur and Panna districts of Bundelkhand region in Madhya Pradesh.
He was son-in-law of Bharatiya Janata Party leader Jujhar Singh Bundela. He was elected to Madhya Pradesh Legislative Assembly as an independent candidate from Pawai in 1990 with a record margin of over 42,000 votes, although he was in jail at the time, in connection to a murder case. Bhaiya Raja vacated the seat for his close confidante - Mukesh Nayak, and got him a nomination from Indian National Congress in 1993. Nayak became a minister in Digvijay Singh cabinet and people would still vouch that without Bhaiya Raja's support, Nayak would never have won the election.
After a fallout with Nayak, Bhaiya Raja contested as a candidate of Samajwadi Party and again won in 1998. He was also chosen as the leader of Samajwadi Party legislatures in the assembly.
He eventually lost to Bharatiya Janata Party candidate Brijendra Singh in 2003.
His wife Asha Rani won as a candidate of Bharatiya Janata Party from Bijawar constituency in 2008.
He was accused in more than twenty cases.
In 1989, he was accused for murder of Siddharth Rao, a notorious criminal of Nainital and the nephew of former home minister of India Buta Singh. He was relieved of all charges regarding the case in 1990.
His domestic help, Tijji Bai, killed herself at his Bhopal home in November 2007. He and his wife Asha Rani were accused of abetment in suicide. Later they were covicted and sentenced to jail for ten years.
