The BharatiyaJanaSangh (abbreviated BJS, and often known simply as the Jan Sangh) existed from 1951 to 1980, whereupon it was succeeded by the Bharatiya Janata Party, one of India's largest political parties.
In 1952 general elections to the Parliament of India, BharatiyaJanaSangh had won three seats; Mookerjee being one of the winning candidates.
The BJS was ideologically close to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, and derived most of its political activist base and candidates from the RSS ranks.
