Formation of BJP:
Bhartiya Janata Party was founded in April 1980, after collapse of Janata Party, which was an all party front created by all parties to fight Indira Congress in 1977.
The first election it fought was in 1984 and it won just two members of parliament.
From just two seats in Lok Sabha in 1984 to winning two back-to-back majority in general elections, the BJP now firmly occupies the position of dominance that the Congress once held. The 300+ seats BJP has won in 2019 is the saffron party’s highest ever Lok Sabha tally. It had won 282 seats in 2014. The saffron map of BJP in 2019:
