The Lok Jan Shakti Party (LJP) is a premier Indian political organisation formed on 28th October 2000 and led by the Honourable Shri Ram Vilas Paswan. In the aftermath of his separation from the Janata Dal (United) Paswan Ji created India’s first political party that voiced the concerns of the dalits, scheduled castes and scheduled tribes, backward classes and minorities. The party has considerable following amongst Dalits in Bihar. Currently party is a member of the National Democratic.
Elaborating the core principle of the party on the occasion, Shri Paswan announced that the Lok Janshakti Party will stand for Social Justice in the Indian society. The party according to him, will always fight for those who for ages have been at the last rung of the social ladder.
The party will stand to ensure the Social, Political and Economic rights to the poor, backwards and the destitute belonging to any caste, community or religion. This requires struggle which Shri Paswan announced will be undertaken through the pathway of Parliamentary democracy. Strengthening the voice of the weak through people’s movement, the party will register itself through its presence in the legislative politics.
Thus from the Parliament to the different state legislatures, the party’s elected representatives will fight for the issues and rights of the Dalits, the oppressed, the backwards and the minorities. The sole aim of the party will be to draw the attention of the Government and the Country to the plight of those who have been wronged historically.
After its establishment in November 2000, Lok Janshakti Party has taken several successful strides in the direction of its expanse. Such has been the effort that it is difficult to find a single district in our country today where the footprints of our Party cannot be traced. With the party’s flags, firmly in their hands, Party workers have thronged the length and breadth of the country in their fight for social justice. The party in its spread has been immensely benefitted by the towering presence of our Founder & President and a leader of immense repute Shri Ramvilas Paswan. His political stature, his organizational skills and his connect with the party workers during his nationwide political tours have contributed immensely to the growth of the Party.
Shri Paswan though on several occasions has himself said, that more than anything else , the growth of the party is always dependent on its core principles and the hard work put in by its workers. In line with his thinking, several training and orientation programmes for the party workers are organized every year from the national to the state levels. Whether it is at the state level, district or the block level, the Lok Janshakti Party is continuously involved through its mass struggle & contact proggs, in raising the issues of the dalits, backwards and the poor people. Despite having a solid faith in the Social Media Revolution, Shri Paswan feels that the most important part is to actually go and work among the common people, align with them and create a place for the party in peoples heart and mind.
