Foundation of Bharatiya Janata Party:
The Bharatiya Janata Party- BJP was founded as Bharatiya Jana Sangh in 1951 by Syama Prasad Mookherjee. Later in 1977, it was merged with several other parties to form the Janata Party.
The National Executive Council of Janata Party in 1980 banned its members from being ‘dual members’ of RSS and the party. Because of the ruling, the former Jan Sangh members left the party and floated a new political party.
Thus, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) came into existence on April 6, 1980.
