  (Redirected from Lok Dal)

Bharatiya Lok Dal (Hindi: भारतीय लोक दल, "Indian Peoples' Party") was a political party in India. The BLD was formed at the end of 1974 through the fusion of seven parties opposed to the rule of Indira Gandhi, including the Swatantra Party, the Utkal Congress, the Bharatiya Kranti Dal, and the Socialist Party. The leader of the BLD was Charan Singh.

In 1977, the BLD combined with the Jan Sangh and the Indian National Congress (Organization) to form the Janata Party. The newly formed Janata Party contested the 1977 elections on the BLD symbol and formed independent India's first government not ruled by the Indian National Congress.

Subsequently Ajit Singh (son of Charan Singh) founded the Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD).Now RLD is led by Chaudhary Sunil Singh of Aligarh[1]
