What is the full form of BJP?

History of BJP:

  • The Bharatiya Jana Sangh, commonly known as the Jana Sangh, was created in 1951 by Syama Prasad Mukherjee in response to the policies of the ruling Congress party.
    • It was originated in association with the Hindu nationalist volunteer organisation, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS)
    • The Jana Sangh’s first main movement, begun in the early year 1953, centred on a demand for the complete incorporation of Jammu and Kashmir into India.
    • The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was formed in 1980 when two political parties, the Bharatiya Janata Sangh (BJS) and the Lok Dal (LD), merged (LD).
    • The BJS was a right-wing party founded in 1951, and the Lok Dal was a left-of-centre party founded in 1974.
    • Following the rise of Hindu nationalism in India in the late 1990s, the party saw major electoral victories. Under the leadership of Atal Bihari Vajpayee, the BJP-led coalition government came to power in 1999.
    • The government lasted a full term but was defeated in elections in 2004.
    • In the 2009 general election, the party suffered substantial losses and was reduced to to 116 seats in the Lok Sabha.
    • The BJP made a comeback in the 2014 general election, winning 282 seats and forming the government under the leadership of Narendra Modi.
