Janata Parivar is an alliance in Indian politics to describe the various political parties that emerged from Janata Dal or others. The Janata Parivar includes, amongst others, Janata Dal (United) and Janata Dal (Secular).
On 14 April 2015, the Janata Dal (United), Janata Dal (Secular), Rashtriya Janata Dal, the Indian National Lok Dal, Samajwadi Party, and Samajwadi Janata Party (Rashtriya) announced that they would merge into a new national Janata Parivar alliance in order to oppose the Bharatiya Janata Party. The Janata Parivar formation took place ahead of the crucial Bihar Legislative Assembly election, 2015. Before the elections, Samajwadi Party broke from the alliance on seat sharing dispute. On 26 July 2017, Janata Dal (United) broke from the alliance.
