The Bharatiya Janata Party is the largest political party in India with an active presence across the length and breadth of the nation. In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections the BJP became the first party in three decades to win a majority on its own. It is also the first non-Congress party to achieve this feat.

On 26th May 2014 Shri Narendra Modi was sworn in as the Prime Minister of India. Under his leadership, the BJP-led NDA government has ushered an era of inclusive and development-oriented governance, catering to the aspirations of the farmer, the poor, marginalised, youth, women and neo-middle class.

The BJP’s history dates back to 1980 when the Party was born under the Presidentship of Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee. The BJP’s precursor, the Bharatiya Jan Sangh was active in Indian politics through the 1950s, 60s and 70s and its leader Shri Shyama Prasad Mukherjee had served in the first ever Cabinet of Independent India. The Jan Sangh was an integral part of the Janata Party government under Shri Morarji Desai from 1977-1979. This was the first ever non-Congress government in India’s history.

BJP: For a strong, stable, inclusive& prosperous India

The BJP stands determined to create a strong, self-reliant, inclusive and prosperous India that draws inspiration from our ancient culture and ethos. The party has been deeply inspired by the philosophy of ‘Integral Humanism’ propounded by Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya. The BJP continues to draw support from every section of Indian society, particularly the youth of India.

In a rather small period of time the BJP rose to become a major force to reckon with in the Indian political system. In 1989 (9 years since its inception), the party’s tally in the Lok Sabha shot up from 2 (in 1984) to 86 seats and the BJP was at the centre of anti-Congress movement that led to the creation of the National Front, which governed India from 1989-1990. The rise continued through the 1990s as the BJP formed governments in several states in the assembly elections of 1990. In 1991 it became the principal opposition party in the Lok Sabha, a remarkable feat for a rather young party.

In the summer of 1996 Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee was sworn in as the nation’s Prime Minister, the first ever Prime Minister with a complete Non-Congress background. The BJP got the mandate of the people in the elections of 1998 and 1999, governing the country for six years from 1998-2004 under Shri Vajpayee. The NDA government under Shri Vajpayee is still remembered for its development initiatives that took India to new heights of progress.

Shri Narendra Modi took the plunge into mainstream politics in 1987 and became the General Secretary of the Gujarat BJP in one year. His organizational skills were behind the Nyay Yatra of 1987 and Lok Shakti Yatra in 1989. These efforts played a major role in the BJP coming to power in Gujarat first for a brief period in 1990 and then from 1995 till date. Shri Modi became the National Secretary of the BJP in1995 and in 1998 given the responsibility of General Secretary (Organization), a very important post in the party organization. 3 years later in 2001 the party entrusted him with the responsibility of taking over as the CM of Gujarat. He was re-elected as CM in 2002, 2007 and in 2012.

Today the BJP is in power in several states and is the principal opposition party in several others. The BJP is a part of the NDA and shares power in Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Manipur, Goa and Jammu and Kashmir with key allies. The NDA remains a large and diverse coalition, representing India’s diversity and vibrant potential.
