Hindustani Awam Morcha (translation: Indian People's Front; abbreviated as HAM) is an Indian political party, formally launched on 8 May 2015 by former Chief Minister of Bihar, Jitan Ram Manjhi, who left the Janata Dal (United) along with 18 others to form the party following the 2015 Bihar political crisis.[3][4] The name of the party was later changed to Hindustani Awam Morcha (Secular) (HAM-S).[5][6] In July 2015, the Election Commission recognised the HAM-S as a political party.[7] The election symbol of the party is a telephone.[8][9][10]

2015 Bihar assembly election[edit]

In July 2015, the party joined the NDA and contested 21 seats, with some additional members contesting on the BJP ticket in Bihar.[11] On 18 September 2015, Hindustani Awam Morcha announced its first list of 13 candidates with Manjhi contesting from Makhdumpur and Imamganj.[12][13]

The party ended up winning only in Imamganj with Manjhi himself losing in Makhdumpur.[14]
