About Us

The Janata Party (JP, translation: People’s Party) is an Indian political party that was founded in the country 43 years ago.
The Janata party was officially launched on 23 January 1977 when the Janata Morcha, Charan Singh’s Bharatiya Lok Dal, Swatantra Party, the Socialist Party of India of Raj Narain and George Fernandes, and the Bharatiya Jana Sangh (BJS) joined together, dissolving their separate identities . Although the political ideologies of Janata constituents were diverse and conflicting, the party was able to unite under the over-reaching appeal of Jayprakash Narayan ji, who had been seen as the ideological leader of the anti-Emergency movement and now the Janata party.

Our Philosophy

Jayprakash Narayan was a great proponent of Socialism.

According to him economic disparity and private ownership on the means of production is the root cause of all the problems, and if we provide means to everyone then the problem of economic disparity will be reduced automatically.

He further said mere nationalision the industries will not established the socialism because it will strengthen the bureaucracy and promote the tendency of centralisation. Hence he proposed the idea of decentralization.

As his ultimate goal, Jayprakash Narayan has suggested making the Sarvodaya movement a success through political and economic decentralization. His ideas related to Sarvodaya can play an important role in rural upliftment.

He dedicated his life to Sarvodaya and renounced all his self interest . He said we should give more importance to the ideals of freedom, justice and brotherhood. Sarvodaya’s ultimate goal is to bring radical changes in all aspects of personal and social life.”

According to him in Sarvodaya Society :

1. There be opportunities for justice and equity

2. there will also be a democratic system which will be based on the freedom of the individual and the person will build his own system of governance.

3. The system will be decentralized, with the Gram Sabha having more power and resources.

4. It will be a social system in which the welfare of all will be contained.

Our Vision & Mission

.

VIEWS ON NATIONALISM

1. Until the spirit of nationalism develops in every person’s heart, the country cannot have all-round development. Despite cultural unity in India, there is a lack of political unity.

2. For national unity, it is necessary that individuals set aside their religious superstitions and develop an intellectual and scientific outlook in themselves.

3. The process of India unity is basically a process of intellectual and spiritual consciousness. Therefore, all the people should contribute to it with equitable means.

MODERN DEMOCRACY

The modern era is the era of parliamentary democracy. Constitution, parties and elections are very important in this democracy. But these things are meaningless until moral values and spiritual qualities develop in the public.

Jayprakash Narayan’s final stage of development of political ideology is the concept of his complete or total revolution. In 1974, he proclaimed the Total Revolution. He declared the entire revolution at Patna’s Gandhi Maidan as his ultimate goal. He wanted to establish a society that is free from exploitation and oppression. He tried to awaken the dormant soul of Indian society and change the social structure by announcing the complete revolution.
His entire revolution – social, political, cultural, theoretical, ideological, educational and spiritual, is a mixture of seven revolutions. This concept is an extension of his ideas of Sarvodaya Socialism, Democratic Socialism and Dalit-less democracy. He believed that the entire revolution would emphasize the moral and cultural values of the people and would prove to be helpful in establishing true socialism.
