Bharipa Bahujan Mahasangh (Hindi: भारिप-बहुजन महासंघ) is a political party in India. The complete name of the party is Bharatia Republican Paksha - Bahujan Mahasangh (Indian Republican Party - Majority Grand Union). BBM is primarily based in Maharashtra and became popular in Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Delhi, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Karnataka.
The party fights for the rights of the Other Backward Classes, Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and the Minorities (bahujan) community. BBM is changing the mindset of traditional caste-based politics and works for a caste-free society. BBM gives opportunities in political power to the depressed classes. In India, the opposition parties almost vanished and the remaining ones are not working as the opposition.
In the Lok Sabha election 2004 the party lost its parliamentary representation. In total the party had launched 16 candidates, all from Maharashtra. In Akola, Ambedkar was defeated by a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate. BBM totalled 606 827 votes, and won three seats.
Bharip Bahujan Mahasangh leader Balasaheb Ambedkar operates on a national level. Ambedkar organized mass rallies against the institutional murder of Rohith Vemula in Hyderabad Central University. He also organised the Dalit Swabhiman Sangharsh Rally in Delhi at Parliament after the Unna Dalit atrocity case and also organised a rally against the demolition of Ambedkar Bhavan Mumbai.
