Merged into Bharatiya Jana Sangh

Akhil Bharatiya Ram Rajya Parishad (RRP, "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 believed in the implementation of a uniform civil code in India.[2] The party eventually merged into the Jana Sangh, the precursor to the Bharatiya Janata Party.[2] The RRP was Dharmic, which significantly affected the political outlook of the party. Hindu Dharma does not generally accept the (Western) concept of a nation-state because Dharma is said to permeate the entire universe rather than demarcate people based on a geo-political entity such as state.
