The party’s earliest foundations lie in ‘Bhartiya Janata Sangh,’ a political party that was formed by the leader Shyama Prasad Mukherjee in 1951. After the State of Emergency in India, in the year 1977, the Bharatiya Janata Sangh merged with several other political parties of the time, to form the ‘Janata Party’, and defeated the Indian National Congress in that year’s general elections. In 1980, the Janata Party dissolved and the members of the party came together to form the BJP.
Addressing the workers and the followers of the Bharatiya Janata Party, Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke about the challenges and the goals of the party on its foundation day. “We need to stay wary about the people who spread false rumours about us,” the Prime Minister said in his speech.
In his speech, addressing the workers of his party, the Prime Minister also said, “Every person and every part of this country is pure for us, and serving them, is our national duty. Being the central government of the country is a means for us to fulfil that national duty of ours.” Before ending his address to the nation, the Prime Minister also requested everyone to attend his ‘Pareeksha Pe Charcha’ speech on 7 April.
