The BJP has witnessed a remarkable rise in Indian politics in just over four decades of existence. Officially founded on April 6, 1980, the party emerged from the shadows of Jana Sangh, which was formed in 1951 by Shyama Prasad Mookerjee.

The Jana Sangh merged with some other parties to form the Janata Party in 1977 after the Emergency imposed by then Congress Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
