Akhil Bharatiya Ram Rajya Parishad

Akhil Bharatiya Ram Rajya Parishad (RRP; translation: All India Council of Rama's Kingdom) was a right-wing orthodox-Hindu Indian political party, founded by Swami Karpatri in 1948. The RRP won three Lok Sabha seats in the 1952 elections to the national parliament, and two in 1962.[1] In 1952, 1957 and 1962, it won several dozen Vidhan Sabha seats, all in the Hindi belt, mostly in Rajasthan. Like other Hindutva-based parties, the RRP wanted a uniform civil code in India.[2] The party eventually merged into Jana Sangh, the precursor to the Bharatiya Janata Party.[2]
