The Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) (Hindi: भारतीय जनता युवा मोर्चा), translation: Indian Popular Youth Front) is the youth wing of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). It is founded in 1978 and first national president was Kalraj Mishra.



The BJP is one of the few parties in India to have a popular-based governing structure, where workers and leaders at the local level have a great say in much of the decision-making. This has also been blamed for public spats between different factions of the party. Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha which is Youth wing of BJP has similar organizational structure like BJP.

The highest authority in the BJYM is the National President. Many BJP prominent leaders like Rajnath Singh, Pramod Mahajan, Shivraj Singh Chauhan, etc., were National President of BJYM. Beyond this, there are several Vice-Presidents like Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, General-Secretaries, Treasurers and Secretaries. The National Executive consists of an undetermined number of senior party leaders from across the nation who are the highest decision-making body in the party. At the state level, a similar structure is in place, with every state unit being led by the respective President, General Secretary, Incharge and Co-Incharge. State level Morcha mainly focuses on the local issues.

BJYM also maintains close relation with Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), which has millions of affiliates. It also maintains close links to other Sangh Parivar organizations, such as Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Swadeshi Jagaran Manch (an organization promoting consumption of domestic goods over foreign imports). Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad also works very closely with the Yuva Morcha.


Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha believes in the all core ideologies of the BJP. The concept of Integral Humanism has a special place in its ideology, with the party aiming to transform India in to a modern, progressive and enlightened nation which draws inspiration from India's ancient Indian culture and values. Being the youth wing of the BJP, it mainly focuses on the issue related to Indian youth.

Historically, the party has favored youth in opposing increase in unemployment and increase in corruption which makes difficult for talented youths to get employments opportunity. It also supports the reforms in education and emphasizes on the computer education.
