Janata Party

The Janata Party is a child of the most epoch-making stuggle in the history of Indian democracy. In March 1977 the people of India, under the inspiring leadership of Jayaprakash Narayanan, elected the Janata Party to power and entrusted it with the task of restoring democracy and freedom to the people and constructing an egalitarian and decentralised social order based on the Gandhian perspective. In this perspective political and economic tasks involve a common, approach, that of providing the people themselves, above all to the poor and deprived among them, both the opportunity and the power to shape their own lives and destiny.
