Ram Rajya Parishad (Rām Rājya Pariṣad), Sanskrit, Forum of Rama's Kingdom, was a traditionalist Hindu party in India. It was founded by Swami Karpatri (1905-1980) in 1948. The Ram Rajya Parishad won three Lok Sabha seats in the 1952 elections and two in the 1962 elections.[1] In 1952, 1957 and 1962, it won several dozens of Vidhan Sabha seats all in the Hindi belt, mostly in Rajasthan.[2] The party then turned inactive and was one of the many parties to merge together to form the Bharatiya Jana Sangh [3]
