Active members of the party cannot have any association with foreign funded NGOs. The ideology of the party is based upon the thoughts of Mahatma Gandhi, Ram Manohar Lohiya, Jaiprakash Narayan, Ambedkar and Vinoba Bhave . It is active in 15 states.It believes that Globalisation is a counter-revolution phase and hence associates itself with anti-globalisation struggles.
