Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)
Vinay Sahasrabuddhe is currently National Vice President of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
BJP, established in 1980 is the ruling party of India and one of the few political parties in India that are not being run by a particular dynasty. Known for its Nationalist Ideology, over the years the BJP has established that when it comes to governance, it easily has an edge over other parties. Good-Governance and development are the two cornerstones of BJP's Policy Framework. BJP's world-view is based on the philosophy of Antyodaya, or highest preference to those who are lowest at the ladder of socio-economic development, i.e.the most deprived.

To day, BJP is ruling in States like Goa, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Haryana, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, Uttrakhand, Manipur and Aasam. In States like Jammu Kashmir Nagaland, Sikkim and Andhra Pradesh, BJP is a key partner in ruling coalition.
