Jantantrik Bahujan Samaj Party
Jantantrik Bahujan Samaj Party (Demokratic Majority Society Party), splinter-group of Bahujan Samaj Party formed in 1997 when 19 BSP Members of the Legislative Assembly of Uttar Pradesh broke away. JBSP allied themselves with BJP and joined the National Democratic Alliance. In UP they gave their support to Kalyan Singh's government. 17 out of the JBSP MLAs were inducted as ministers in the state government. The president of JBSP was DP Yadav (Rajya Sabha MP) and the general secretary Shahidullah Khan.
When JBSP fell apart DP Yadav organized a new party, Rashtriya Parivartan Dal.
JBSP should not be confused with another BSP-splinter group, Loktantrik Bahujan Samaj Party.
