The party was founded in 1980
- The BJP was founded on 6 April 1980, but its history is linked to the Bharatiya Jana Sangh. Dr. Shyamaprasad Mukherjee resigned from the Jawaharlal Nehru cabinet after India remained silent on the alleged atrocities on Hindu minorities in Pakistan and Bangladesh and founded the Bharatiya Jana Sangh on 21 October 1951.
- In 1967, under the leadership of Bharatiya Jana Sangh and Deendayal Upadhyaya, Congress’s monopoly was broken in many states and Congress started losing in states. In 1977, when Indira Gandhi decided to hold elections after ending the Emergency, all the anti-Congress parties came together and formed the ‘Janata Party’ at the call of Jayaprakash Narayan. The Bharatiya Jana Sangh merged with the Janata Party on 1 May 1977.
- The Janata Party experiment did not last long. Mutual competition also increased. It was said that people belonging to Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh will not remain in the Janata Party. Then on 6 April 1980, the Bharatiya Janata Party was formed as a new organization. Atal Bihari Vajpayee became the first president.
