Full Form of BJP :
Bharatiya Janata Party
Full Form of BJP is Bharatiya Janata Party. If translated to English, Bharatiya Janata Party would mean Indian People’s Party. BJP is one of the biggest political parties in India which was founded in the year 1980. BJP is considered to be one of the principal parties in Indian Politics along with INC (Indian National Congress). In terms of primary membership, BJP is the largest party in the world having active members of over 110 million. It is the leader of the NDA (National Democratic Alliance), which is a coalition of political parties in the Indian political system. BJP is considered to be the right wing political party which has close ideological links to RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh), the largest voluntary NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) in the world.
As of the year 2016, BJP is the biggest political party as far as representation in the Indian Parliament is concerned. The same is the case with state assemblies. The party was created by Syama Prasad Mookherjee in the year 1951. The party was initially not successful in dismantling the presence of Congress in the states and in the country overall. However, post-Ram Janambhoomi movement, its popularity increased eventually. It started to attain major victories in state elections and perform fairly better in national elections.
The ideology of BJP is integral humanism. BJP explicitly conveys its commitment to Hindutva. It has strongly advocated social conservatism and formulation of foreign policies on nationalistic lines. Some of the key issues in BJP’s manifesto include abrogation of Article 370, construction of Ram Temple, enforcement of the Uniform Civil Code, etc. However, lately, the party seemingly has not constructively addressed these issues. It is to be noted that in terms of primary membership, the BJP is presently the biggest political party in the world. The organizational structure of the BJP is hierarchical, with the position of the President having the utmost authority in the party. It is also a cadre-based party and has subsidiary organizations.
