ABOUT THE BOOK

The Bharatiya Janata Party is an idea that was seeded into the minds of
nationalist Jana Sangh leaders when they began to envision India after
Independence. Much like the very core the freedom struggle was built on,
they saw India as a demographically, culturally and historically cohesive and
unified nation - as Bharat. In this book, senior BJP leader and cabinet minister
Bhupender Yadav and leading economist Ila Patnaik come together to trace
the BJP's journey from its humble roots, through ups and downs and to
eventually getting 303 seats in Lok Sabha in 2019 and becoming the world's
largest political party. While focusing on the larger economics and political
story, the book encapsulates many smaller, yet hugely significant stories of
individuals and incidents, which brought the BJP to where it stands now. For
the first time ever, The Rise of the BJP, tells us the inside story of how one of the
most powerful political parties makes decisions, implements ideas and
executes policy. Meticulously researched and immensely readable, the book
shows us how the BJP fought competing ideologies, political assaults and
catapulted to the centre stage of national politics.
