Bahujan Samaj Party (Ambedkar)


Bahujan Samaj Party (Ambedkar)

The Bahujan Samaj Party (Ambedkar) was a splinter-group of the Bahujan Samaj Party in Punjab and Haryana, India. The party president was Devi Dass Nahar and the general secretary was Vijay Kumar Hans (later leader of the Democratic Bharatiya Samaj Party). The party claimed to have 100,000 party workers, a gross exaggeration.

In the 2002 legislative assembly elections in Punjab, BSP(A) put up 23 candidates, who together received 20,260 votes.

The BSP(A) reunited with the BSP on 31 December, 2003.
