ABVP is not a member of BJP. I have been a senior functionary in ABVP at the city level. My family has had extensive ties with ABVP at national and state levels. ABVP is the student branch of RSS, not BJP. This is a common misconception (eg:IBN, but see the official position ABVP and TimesOfIndia. Furthermore, BJP was established in 1980, ABVP was established in 1949, even before Jansangh was established (1951).

In media, many times ABVP is treated as student wing of BJP.. So, ABVP is a related organisation to BJP.
To put ABVP in BJP's wings/forum is not true. It is a separate entity altogether. Ideologically, takes inspiration from RSS, legally speaking ABVP is also not a forum/part of RSS. It is a completely independent entity. But when people say its a parivar organisation. They are not wrong. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 12:18, 6 June 2014 (UTC)
