Former RSS members form new political party ahead of assembly elections

In a recent development in Madhya Pradesh’s political landscape, a group of former members from Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) have come together to form a new political entity named “Janhit Party.” The announcement came during a gathering held in Bhopal on September 10, 2023.
The creation of the Janhit Party, led by ex-RSS members Abhay Jain, Manish Kale, and Vishal Badal, is seen as an endeavour to provide a new alternative in the political sphere, with a foundation grounded in Hindutva principles and a commitment to serving the nation. The leaders have emphasised that their aim is to further the cause of the nation by focusing on issues pertinent to the common man.
With key elections approaching, including the 2023 Madhya Pradesh legislative assembly elections and the Lok Sabha elections, the newly formed party is gearing up to make its presence felt. The leaders have outlined a five-point agenda which will be the cornerstone of their electoral campaign, details of which were shared during the launch event in Bhopal.
Abhay Jain, one of the founding members, mentioned his rich history of association with the RSS, having served in various roles from 1986 to 2005. Jain, along with Kale and Badal, highlighted their journey and the experiences they garnered while working on different social issues over the past fifteen years under the banner of “Bharat Hit Raksha Abhiyan.”
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has not yet officially responded to this development. It is yet to be seen how the formation of the Janhit Party will influence the dynamics of the upcoming electoral battles.
As India prepares for the forthcoming elections, the establishment of the Janhit Party adds a new dimension to the political scenario, introducing a fresh player with a background deeply rooted in RSS ideologies. It remains to be observed how the party will carve out its space in the competitive political landscape, and what implications it may have for existing political entities.
