Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma will also attend the Foundation day event at the party’s state headquarters.
The ruling party has organised various programmes at the booth level to mark this foundation day which coincided with polling in 5 Assemblies this year.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was founded as Bharatiya Jana Sangh by Syama Prasad Mookherjee in 1951. Later it was merged with several parties in 1977 to form the Janata Party.
In 1980, the National Executive Council of the Janata Party banned its members from being ‘dual members’ of the party and the RSS.
This led the former Jana Sangh members leave the party and floated a new political party. Thus, the BJP came into existence on April 6, 1980.
