Socialist Janata (Democratic) Party broke away from Janata Dal (S).It merged with Janata Dal (United) on 29 December 2014.[3][4]


The Kerala unit of the Janata Dal (S) is a part of the CPI (M)-led Left Democratic Front. The CPI(M)-JD(S) ties came under strain around 2008. Things worsened when the CPI(M) hesitated to give the JD(S) seat of the Kozhikode parliamentary constituency, in the 2009 Lok Sabha election, and the leading newspaper Mathrubhumi published lavalin issues, which is against Pinarayi vijayan. He got angry with the Managing director of Mathrubhumi and the chief of SJ(D) MP Virendra Kumar. A major portion of the JD(S) led by M.P. Veerendra Kumar aligned with the United Democratic Front and launched the Socialist Janata (Democratic) Party on August 7, 2010.[5]It merged with Janata Dal (United) on 29 December 2014.[6][7]
