History of VPI


On January 3, 2020, the party cadre was trained in Barpeta, 504 people participated. 750 people participated in the training of Rangapara. Shri Vishwatma’s 51st Birth Anniversary Celebrations were celebrated on 15th February 2020 at Rangia. A Citizenship Review Rally was held on the occasion. About 50 thousand people participated in the rally. On March 8, a public meeting was held at Goreshwar in Assam on the occasion of International Women’s Day. About 2000 people participated. The next day, on March 9, a one-day workers’ training camp was organized through LED screens at Udalguri, which included about 1000 people. A four-day cadre training programme was organized at Dimapur in Nagaland from March 10 to March 13, which was attended by 127 VPI workers. Seeing voters’ party international moving forward under the direction of Shri Vishwatma, the ruling party conspired to arrest Shri Vishwatma in Nagaland. On March 13, he was arrested by mischievous acts of police, when he was finishing last session of training course. The purpose of arrest was to extort money in ransom, abduct him and facilitate his assassination in Nagaland by Naga Terrorists. After arrest of Shri Vishwatma, Assam workers of the party started preparing to launch rail Roko Agitation and Jail Bharo movement. Even before the party workers could do so, the Central Government passed an order to stop the railways across the country. The whole country came to a standstill. Road movement was stopped across the country. Air traffic was stopped. People were forced to be confirmed in their homes. The one who went was trapped. Shri Vishwatma was unnecessarily remanded in police custody for 10 days for torture. On March 23, a court in Nagaland passed an order to send him to jail. He was sent jail in the alligations of 7 years imprisonment by a Nagaland court at 3 pm. On the same day, the Supreme Court of India passed an order that all those accused of 7 years imprisonment across the country should be released with only identity cards. Mr Vishwatma was not released from jail due to high-level political conspiracy even order of apex court. But the good thing was that as soon as Mr. Vishwatma entered into jail, the jail laws changed. Earlier talking to jail over phone was considered a crime. But as soon as Shri Vishwatma went to jail, all the prisoners in jails all over the country were given the right to call from the jail. Lawyers who wanted to defend them in court were not allowed to perform thier legal job. Senior party leaders Shri Shivakant Gorakhpuri and Naveen Kumar were kidnapped by Naga militants when they arrived in Nagaland to take court proceedings. Police did not arrest any abductors. While the phones of the abducted victims were switched on intermittently and ransom was demanded. After the kidnapping, they were asked to bring and pay 3 crore rupees as ransom. One of the abductors was allegedly made a criminal by the police and sent inside the same jail in which Mr Vishwatma was lodged. He wanted to deal with Mr. Vishwatma in jail, but Mr. Vishwatma did not listen to him. He misled the jail administration and turned it against Mr. Vishwatma. The abductors revealed that whenever Mr Vishwatma will be released from the jail, he would be kidnapped and killed by Naga militants. Seeing Nagaland police being linked with terrorists and hostile against Mr. Vishwatma, central government was asked for central police protection for his safe release from jail. The Central Government rejected the plea. Therefore, even after being granted bail by the High Court on April 27, Shri Vishwatma remained in jail for more than 3 months. Two months later, on the day he was to come out of jail, the police from another district arrived and took him to a jail in Mon district situated at the mountains near the Burma border. Where he had to stay for a month and a half. The court process proved that the Mon district police had registered a case against Mr Vishwatma silently with fake signatures of the alleged seven complainants. In Mon jail, the administration knew that Mr. Vishwatma was a vegetarian, yet he was given rice and cow meat to eat. Shri Vishwatma consumed only rice and passed one and a half months in this jail. Due to the historic order of the High Court of Guwahati, it was become possible for him to come out alive under police protection on 4th August, 5 months later. The case registered against Shri Vishwatma in Dimapur and Mon districts of Nagaland till the end of 2020 is still under consideration of local courts and the petition filed in the Guwahati High Court against the two cases is also under consideration. 


This year, a training camp of political reformers was organised at Dudhnoi in Goalpara district, at Barpeta (twice), at Rangapara in Assam, and also in Farrukhabad and Mainpuri of Uttar Pradesh). On December 10 and 11, 2019, training was given to office bearers of the party related to the party’s organization elections. More than 2,000 people participated in this training. On January 7, March 31 and May 16, 2019, the party’s Assam State office bearers conference was held at Rangia in Assam. About 1600 officials participated in these two conferences.

At the same function, on the request of party workers and as per the resolution taken earlier, announcement to change the name of Sh. Bharat Gandhi from “Bharat Gandhi” to “Vishwatma “ was made and such change was published in the Gazette of India Notification.


In 2018, a training camp of political reformers was organized at Rangapara in Sonitpur district of Assam (twice), in Dhekijuli, Kokrajhar town, Bongaigaon, Rangia, Guwahati city, Sipakhoa, Dhemaji and Barpeta. Similar camps were also held at Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh and Patna in Bihar. More than 5627 people participated in these camps. All these trainings were conducted by Shri Bharat Gandhi. The party’s public meetings were held In Gorupasha, Goru Bazar in Chirang district, in Gosaigaon village in Kokrajhar district, Botabari, Mangaldai and Khatara in Darang district, Rangapara and Thailamara in Sonitpur district, Dimakusi in Udalguri district, Khelpathar in Lakhimpur district, Baganpara in Baksa district and At Bhagatpara, Demphu Field Club in Nalbari district. Similar public meetings were also held at Sikandra in Kanpur Dehat district of Uttar Pradesh, at Anapur in Jaunpur district, Farrukhabad and Raebareli of U.P. Party’s public meetings were also held at Gumla in Jharkhand and in Ranchi. In Bhopal,  Madhya Pradesh, and in Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh. Representatives of several political parties were invited to be aligned with VPI and were introduced to the party’s policies. In Madhya Pradesh, the party also held a public meeting at Rungaon in the Khandwa district. All these public meetings were addressed by the Party’s Policy Director, Shri Vishwatma @ Bharat Gandhi.


A tragic incident took place this year that prof. Ramesh Chandra Gupta, President of the party’s Central Committee, took farewell from the world on June 10, 2017. This post became vacant. The meeting of the General Assembly of the party on 24th September 2017 was very important. On this day, the party approved the rules on Zero Membership, Primary Membership and General membership. On this day, the rules for taking donations and giving donation receipts in return were also approved. In lieu of economic contribution in cash or in kind, the donor could get the money back from the government- the rules regarding this policy was also approved on the same day. Shri Vijay Kumar Jain was elected President of the Party’s Central Committee in the same meeting. Earlier he was the vice president of the party. The party’s public meetings were held at Rangia, Majbat, Salibari, Bijni, Tangla in Assam between February and September. Several thousand people participated in the same. By organising a conference of Lokatantra Senanies from all over Uttar Pradesh at Gandhi Bhawan in Lucknow on 22nd August the issues of political reforms were briefed. In Uttar Pradesh, a public meeting was also held at Aral in Kannauj district. Between October and December this year, party worker training camps were organized at Dhekijuli and Mangaldei in Assam and Rishikesh in Uttarakhand. About 2000 people participated in these camps. The public meeting held at the district play ground in Rangia on October 10 was a record public meeting so far. About 20,000 people came to their expense. The first foundation day of the party was celebrated on 17th November 2017 at Jantar Mantar, Delhi. About 12,000 people were involved. Out of this, about 10,000 people arrived from Assam by about 40 hours of train travel. It was sad that 15 people disappeared during the visit, out of which the government could not locate three persons so far.  He may have been martyred. The Home Secretary issued permission to CB CID to probe the mass abduction case of Kannauj when the Akhilesh government lost power after the 2017 elections. After more than 2 years of investigation, CB CID mobilised enough evidence, despite refusing to lodge an FIR against the accused and police officers of the kidnapping.


On 19th June 2016, the General Assembly of the party met in which organizational elections were held as 4 years of party formation had been completed. A total of 2998 people participated in the four-day workers ‘ training camp held at Kharupetia, Lakhimpur, Kokrajhar, Mangaldai in Darrang district of Assam and in Baktiyarpur town of Bihar between 14th and 17th February. In February and March this year, several public meetings were held at Rangapara, Tangla, Udalguri, Darang, Lakhimpur in Assam. A press conference was also held at Lakhimpur and Guwahati. On August 22, 2016, the word “international” was explained before the Election Commission which is a part of the name of the party.

Consequently, the said inquiry report was canceled by the NHRC and passed the order on 24-02.2016 for investigation by apex investigation agency of the state- CB CID. However, the Principal Home Secretary of Uttar Pradesh did not allow CB CID to investigate the case. The principal secretary of the state-home and DGP deliberately ignored the order of the NHRC and refused to give police protection to the petitioner even after the order issued twice. When a report on the assessment of threat perception was sought by the petitioner through an application sent under RTI; both the offices refused to give the said information. The State Information Commission itself refused to issue instructions to the DGP and the Home Secretary to give the information sought. Seeing the chief Minister’s personal involvement in the kidnapping case, the expectation of getting justice ended from the agencies of state Government. As a result, all the facts were placed before the Secretary, Ministry of Home Affairs of the Central Government on 18.04.2016 and 02.07.2016 and demanded a CBI inquiry and security of central forces to Shri Bharat Gandhi. The application was improperly forwarded by the Union Home Secretary to the same Home Secretary of the Government of Uttar Pradesh who himself was involved in the crime.

The atrocity on the main witnesses of the kidnapping scandal was not only stopped here. In order to make the witnesses hostile against Sh. Vishwatma @ Bharat Gandhi a false case of gang rape in July 2016 against the main witness of the case was registered but did not arrest the accused in order to pressurize the witnesses. The officers of the DGP’s office and the chief minister of U.P. were jointly attacked three times for killing Shri Bharat Gandhi on 04.07.2015, 31.01.2016, and 15.11.2016. But in no case, no FIR was lodged by the Uttar Pradesh police. FIR was not registered on the complaint of mass abduction dated 06.06.2012 even after 4 years and FIRs was not registered on the complaint of the kidnapping of witness sent on 05.05.2015. In view of the law and order machinery against the petitioner, it was not safe for the petitioner to go to the district court of Kannauj for registering cases under 156 CRPPC.


A total of 4 training camps of political reformers were organized in 2015. These camps were organized at Kokrajhar, Dhekijuli, Lakhimpur, Rangapara, Rangia, Tamulpur, Gogmukh, Mangaldei and Bongaigaon in Assam. About 9065 people were trained in these camps. Public meetings were also held at Kokrajhar, Goreshwar, Harsinga , and Nagaon in which thousands of people participated. The details are as under:………………………………………………..

The National Human Rights Commission passed an order to the Director-General of Police of Uttar Pradesh on 02.03.2015 to conduct a police inquiry into the matter when the Union Home Ministry did not respond in the Kannauj Mass Abduction case. ASP Kanpur Dehat Shri Rishaipaaal Yadav plotted in the name of police investigation. On 27.04.2015, in the name of investigation, the main witness of the case was abducted from Amethi, brutally tortured, nearly a rim plain paper was signed at gunpoint by senior officers of the human rights department of the DGP office.


The draft constitution of the party was discussed in detail at the meeting of the General Assembly of the party on 20th August 2015. A total of 6 training camps of political reformers were organized in 2014. These camps were organized at Rangia in Assam and Etah in Uttar Pradesh. About 2300 people were trained in these camps. The details are as under:………………………………………………..

When the order of Supreme Court did not execute by the office of Director General of Police of Uttar Pradesh, the National Human Rights Commission issued a notice to the Union Home Ministry in the Kannauj Mass Kidnapping case and ordered an inquiry and directed the MHA to take appropriate action to provide police protection to Shri Bharat Gandhi. But the Union Home Ministry refused the order of the Commission.


In the first meeting after the formation of Voters Party International, a new funding policy was adopted for the party on 12th January 2013. In the same meeting, a Constitution Drafting Committee was constituted to prepare the Constitution of the party.

On January 23, 2013, the party’s founder Mr. Vishwatma Bharat Gandhi himself filed and argued a petition in the Supreme Court to seek security against the chief Minister’s family and to conduct a CBI inquiry into the Kannauj mass abduction case. Supreme Court ordered probe into security threat to Sh. Gandhi to provide police protection to Mr Gandhi accordingly to Director General of Police, Uttar Pradesh. But the prayer of CBI investigation was not accepted by the apex court to investigate the kidnapping case. The newspapers prominently featured this news.

A four-day training camp was organized to train political reformers at Nagrijuli in Baksa district of Assam between 19th and 22nd September 2013. About 300 people were involved. The same events were held again between December 4 and 7 in Nagrijuli and between 25th and 28th December 2013 at Goraimari in Udalguri district. In which 350 and 210 people participated respectively.


Due to the campaign launched by Shri Bharat Gandhi and his supporters in thousands of villages of Kannauj, the mood of the people of Kannauj in 2012 was totally against the Samajwadi Party. At the same time, the parliamentary bye-election was announced to be started from 6th June 2012. Shri Bharat Gandhi’s team fielded its candidate in the Kannauj Lok Sabha bye-election. But the ruling Samajwadi Party realized the mood of the people.

The top leaders of the ruling party kidnapped the Voters Party’s candidate and two other leaders- Ram Singh Lodhi and Sadesh Yadav by using the police and criminals. Thus the nexus of criminals and administration did not allow the proceedings of elections. The wife of Chief Minister obtained a certificate to be elected unopposed from the then collector Shilva Kumari J. and by misusing the influence of the office of CM. It was a new experience for Mr. Gandhi. He decided not to bow down against this atrocity of mighty people. However, he knew very well that taking enmity from the most powerful and dreaded family in the state is nothing short of taking the risk of life.

Mr Gandhi filed a case against the then Chief Minister and his criminal colleagues in the High Court of Uttar Pradesh, the Supreme Court of India, and the National Human Rights Commission. The result was what they had already feared. Shri Bharat Gandhi’s life was threatened. The then Samajwadi Party government started defying the orders of the higher courts. Supreme Court orders to look into the matter and give police protection to Shri Bharat Gandhi, but the Director-General of Police was pressured by the CM for not complying with the order of the apex court. The attack and abduction of an associate of Shri Bharat Gandhi committed once again. It became difficult for Shri Bharat Gandhi to enter into the territory of Uttar Pradesh. He then stayed in Delhi and started a legal battle against the offenses being committed by the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh.

In 2012, Mr. Vishwatma Bharat Gandhi and his colleagues once again advised him to form a new political party in a new name. It was observed that the people need an option to fight with the unjust polity. So, the new party was formed on 20th August, 2012. Now the party was named-Voters Party International (VPI). After the formation of the party the first four-day training camp was organized to train political reformers at Udalguri district of Assam between 20th and 23rd December 2012. Only 72 people participated in this camp.


2011From 2005, the then Congress government did not legislate on the round-up of MPs running for the right to the votership, nor did it allow the parliament to be debated on 8th May. But, as a matter of seriousness, the Congress government stepped on the path of giving direct cash benefits to the people. Under this step, the government enacted the Aadhaar card law. The mathematics was that if people withdraw the money given by the government as direct cash benefit from several bank accounts, they should be caught. In 2010, the government started giving 25 kg of foodgrains almost free of cost to the poor families by enacting the Food Security Act. About Rs 3 lakh crore was kept in the Food Security Act budget. This has angered the AB mentality trillionaires of the country’s. They began to find a way to remove the Congress government from power. Meanwhile, in January 2011the arrest of the one owner of mobile companies done who was accused in the 2G spectrum scam.

When the owners of mobile service companies showed fear of jail, they started an agitation on 1st April 2011 in the name of Ombudsman to remove the Congress government from power. By the power of the media, confusion was created as the people have stood up against corruption. Some people were made a pawn in it. To stop this fake corruption movement, Shri Bharat Gandhi drafted the Democratic Ombudsman Bill. The Bill was introduced before the President on 25th May 2011 along with a representation to investigate the whole episode by the CBI. The representation exposed a fake agitation against corruption in the name of Lokpal.

Shri Bharat Gandhi appeared before the Standing Committee on 21st October 2011 at the invitation of the Standing Committee working on the Ombudsman Bill. There he opposed the corruption-enhancing bill mooted by the media hype. His point was accepted by the Committee of Parliament. Consequently, the conspiracy of the trillionaires derailed, which was run in the name of Lokpal. However, in 2014, the trillionaires succeeded in getting the change of power at the center. The visionary capacity of  Shri Bharat Gandhi was once again proved when the so-called anti-corruption people who came to power in Delhi in the name of the Ombudsman retreated from the formation of the Ombudsman itself.

Just after 2 days, on 23rd October 2011 Shri Bharat Gandhi appeared before the Goyal Committee of Rajya Sabha officials working on Votership Right on the invitation of this Committee. Hundreds of MPs had agreed to the votership right. The officers considered that proposal as practical and unfair. But after the appearance of Shri Bharat Gandhi, the opinion of all the committee members was changed. The Goyal Committee unanimously recommended the adoption of Shri Bharat Gandhi’s plea submitted by parliaments regarding the right to votership. Which was later kept in pendency under a high-level conspiracy.


In 2010, the inspiration of VPI, Shri Bharat Gandhi and his supporters saw that the Samajwadi Party was getting the benefit of the campaign that they launched in Amethi and Raebareli. Because he did not offer any political option amongst the people of these areas. Mulayam Singh Yadav, the chief of Samajwadi Party in Parliament, was also involved in a conspiracy against the votership. After this experience, everyone connected with Sh. Gandhi became the opinion that they should constitute a new political party. However, the work was very difficult. Because it was almost impossible to face the big political parties who danced at the behest of the triliionaires. Nevertheless, the challenge that has been decided was accepted. The party was formed in 2010, which was named as the Voters Party. The party’s website, Facebook page and YouTube channel were started by the same name. It was decided that the party should not be registered for a few yearss. So that the mass movement is created first. The people who have come out of the agitation should be made the founder of the party. But some people from Delhi and Etawah, working with Shri Bharat Gandhi, betrayed Shri Bharat Gandhi. They secretly submitted an application to the Election Commission of India for registration of the same party. Shri Bharat Gandhi filed a case against the betrayal in the Delhi High Court. The High Court ordered in 2011 that “the petitioners may be the real founders of the party, but the petitioners did not knock the door of the election commission earlier to register the party. Therefore, the High Court cannot stop the election commission from registering those who knocked them out”.


After Amethi and Raebareli, Shri Bharat Gandhi and his supporters moved towards the constituency of Shri Mulayam Singh Yadav, the head of Samajwadi Party of who was supporting the then central government from inside. In order to convince Sh. Mulayam Singh Yadav, 43 associates of Sh. Vishwatma Bharta Gandhi started their fast in front of the Lucknow assembly. The protesters demanded the Samajwadi Party chief that the issue of votership is a purely socialist issue. So, Mr. Mulayam Singh Yadav should prepare the Congress party to hold debate on the issue of votership in Parliament or withdraw his support from the Congress government. The Samajwadi Party chief assured for the same and he requested Mr. Bharat Gandhi to ask his supporters to end their fast. He verbally promised that “I will have a debate on votership in the forthcoming Parliament session”. Later, shri Mulayam Singh Yadav was unfaithful. Barring a debate, he did not understand the need to communicate again. Thereafter, Shri Bharat Gandhi and his supporters decided that the work they have done in Amethi and Raebareli will now do the same in the area of Etawah and Kannauj. After this decision, Shri Bharat Gandhi and his supporters went to Kannauj and started village-village padyatras there. Wall paintings in about 1500 villages were done. Shri Gandhi himself addressed 42 public meetings in Kannauj Lok Sabha constituency This changed the minds of the people of the area. The people waited for the election to teach a lesson to Shri Mulayam Singh and his family members, who worked against socialism. The occasion came in 2012 when Mr. Akhilesh Yadav, his son resigned as Member of Parliament after becoming chief minister and his seat became vacant. His wife Dimple Yadav was announced to contest the election in the vacant seat of Kannauj. Mr. Bharat Gandhi’s supporters decided to field his candidate in the seat of Mulayam Singhji’s son. That is what was done. But, later on, a major criminal incident took place under instructions of the then Chief Minister, Shri Akhilesh Yadav himself.


Seeing the historic polarisation of MPs in 2008, the then Parliamentary Affairs Minister, Shri Priyaranjan Priyaranjan Dasmunsi invited Shri Bharat Gandhi to discuss the matter. A long conversation took place at the Shastri Bhawan. In the end, he also became a supporter of the Votarship right. He said that we are ready to hold a debate on the proposal of the votership on behalf of the Government. He suggested to convince the Speaker of the Lok Sabha, Shri Somnath Chatterjee for holding the debate. Finally, It was  decided that a debate will be held in the Lok Sabha under rule 193 on dated 06.05.2008. For the first time the news Shri Bharat Gandhi’s efforts were prominently published in every language by newspapers across the country. The presidents of ruling political parties came to know first time about the episode which was undergoing on Votership Right amongst parliamentarians. By reading this news, the cruel forces of AB mentality came into action. Consequently, the heads of all parties decided to stop the session of Parliament to avoid debate, on 5th May 2008. The attempt to land the real democracy was foiled. The hope that the people who are in economic distress can get some relief from Parliament is shattered. Shri Bharat Gandhi picked up his pen for the first time and wrote a small book to disclose the high level conspiracy against the voters of the country took place in the Parliament. The book was named “Mahabharata against Economic Genocide”. This book found tremendous popularity. Thousands of copies were sold. Shri Bharat Gandhi and his team came to the conclusion that MPs and MLAs are not responsible for the economic plight of the people. But the heads of the parties are responsible for the  same. Who are fully in the clutches of trillionaires of the country and abroad. It was concluded that the heads of political parties are habitual to dance like a puppet to get donations from them and to remain in power always. Sh. Bharat Gandhi opined that it cannot be called a democracy. Now, it has been proved that this governance system is not a democratic system, but a puppet system. Finally it was decided to communicate the entire story of this fake democracy among the general public. It was also decided to go to the areas where the head of the parties fought the elections and introduce the whole episode to public of respective constituencies. Under the same policy, Shri Bharat Gandhi and his supporters moved from Delhi to Amethi and Raebareli. The office opened in 2008 on the platform of the Amethi railway station. His supporters walked on foot in about 2500 villages and told the people of Amethi and Raebareli the full story of  Parliament. Sh. Gandhi received tremendous support from the local people. On October 01 and November 14, 2008, two large public meetings of Shri Bharat Gandhi were held at Amethi town and Raebareli Collector’s office. That is why the collapse of the Congress started in these areas.


In 2005, Shri Bharat Gandhi of the party formed a small team in Delhi. The team began to discuss the benefits of political reforms, the right to votership and the practical aspects of implementing these proposals with MPs from door to door. Mr Gandhi requested for submission of his petition before the Petitions Committee of Parliament, firstly in House of the People and later on in the Council of the states. Shri Bharat Gandhi was advised to do so by Dr Subhash Kashyap, former general secretary of the Lok Sabha, a noted constitution expert of India. From 2005 to 2007, more than 300 MPs came in support of Shri Bharat Gandhi’s proposal. The number of MPs was increasing day by day who had given notices under the respective rule of respective house.

On the request of Shri Bharat Gandhi, MPs from all parties formed an all-party organisation called “Council of MPs for Votership”. The MPs ‘ organization decided to put pressure on the government to hold debate the proposal of the votarship right. The MPs requested Shri Bharat Gandhi to prepare the MPs to participate in the debate. Shri Bharat Gandhi’s started a series of seminars for MPs. The MPs listened to Shri Bharat Gandhi from 8 pm to 11 pm. During the seminars, the parliamentarians used to argue and study to make real democracy through votership. The series lasted from 2006 to April 2008. Unfortunately, under a high level conspiracy, the session of the parliament was sign die to avoid the debate.


In 3 years from 2002 to 2004, the party Shri Bharat Gandhi addressed more than 500 public meetings in Meerut and Bihar. In which they got immense public support. It has been proved that the political reforms that the had evolved in solitude, the general public is in favour of these reforms. Shri Bharat Gandhi was addressing a gathering at the town hall of Champaran in Bihar in 2003. After his lecture, a middle-aged farmer wearing a dilapidated hundreds of holes in the Q&A session questioned him. The farmer observed, “In such a big country, if you go and explain to the people, it will take a lot of time. Meanwhile, millions of people will die of poverty. The farmer asked the question, “Why don’t you explain this to the parliamentarians of Delhi”? He further said that if the Members of Parliament understood, it would become a law and if those people protested, the people would understand their role and act accordingly”. Shri Bharat Gandhi liked the suggestions of the farmer of Champaran. He decided to stop the campaign of public meetings and leave Meerut and go to Delhi to convince the parliamentarians. Thus, a campaign to convince MPs began in 2005.


On 20th January in 2001, Shri Bharat Gandhi was arrested on the orders of Meerut district magistrate. The only reason was that the spinning mill workers located in Meerut were forced under the voluntary Retirement Scheme to leave the job by taking money from the government. Forced to do so, the labourers were ready to do so. But they were cheated under a high-level conspiracy. The cheque, which was given to them, was written in two or four per cent of the money that was made as per the rules of their voluntary retirement. The then collector Awasthi, the then industry secretary A P Singh and the then local MLA, Agarwal jointly forcibly locked their houses. This misery was reported to Shri Bharat Gandhi by the mill employees. The employees said that they have been passing time sitting outside their homes for the last one week in the cold wave. To protect from cold wave, the huts of the colony are burnt daily night. The power of the colony has been disconnected. The water connection has been discontinued. The collector has forcibly ousted the inhabitants from their houses. He instructed to issue cheques to mill employees of four to six thousand rupees to take the luggage to their home. The bank manager has also been barred from paying the money against the cheques.The mill employyees could neither go home nor could he stay in the company premises.

Seeing this atrocity, Shri Bharat Gandhi said that he was going to his office to talk to the collector on the matter. He advised that two or four mill employees should walk with me. But there were 2500 people who companied with Mr. Gandhi. After a three-hour walk, Sh. Gandhi reached the residence at around 7:00 pm. All the people were disturbed by the cold waves. The watchman of residence of collector was asked to open the gate. He did not open. Some labourers forcefully opened the gate. All the people went inside and waited for the collector. The government employees of camp office of collector reported to the collector that his house had been occupied. His family has left the house and fled. The collector called SSP and ordered Lathicharge. Shri Bharat Gandhi did not even drink water since the morning. He  along with many mill employees suffered serious injuries. He was handcuffed in his hand in a state of unconsciousness. He was taken to the hospital. Where he came to consciousness at 1.00 am at the night. He was sent to jail in the morning by local court.

A few days later, the district magistrate was detained in jail for up to 1 year by taking action under the National Security Act, NSA. He went to jail and decided that he would eat a loaf every day to live in jail. He started satyagraha in jail against wrongful arrest of 32people. He also decided to fight the legal battle to release 31 mill employees who were arrested with him. He also resolved that he would neither lie in the court process nor spend the money nor engage any lawyers to plead. Under the NSA Act, a high level commission of three judges of the Lucknow bench of High Court was formed to look into the matter. Shri Bharat Gandhi appeared before the commission and told introduced whole episode. The High Level Commission of the High Court granted acquittal from allegations and recommended the governor of the state to pass order to release o Shri Bharat Gandhi from jail. The Swatantra Singh Court heard the verdict in the trial which was undergoing in the local court.

The court found Sh. Bharat Gandhi and other 31 imprisoned  innocent. The court quashed the charge sheet and ordered the release of 32 persons including Shri Bharat Gandhi from jail.  The court also found the plot in due course of trail and therefore, the court took suo motu cognizance of the stenographer of the then collector who made the FIR and registered a case under section 340 of the CRPC against him. Later on, Shri Bharat Gandhi himself argued against the collector in the High Court Allahabad. The High Court  accepted the case and issued notice. But the court did not hear the case for next 15 years. Finally, one day, the court rejected the case suddenly. Shri Bharat Gandhi also registered a case in Lucknow bench of High Court for getting arrears of mill workers. This case was also dismissed by the high court after 15 years later. The mill workers could not get their dues. They failed to get justice. The mill campus became vacant and ruins.


In 2000, Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee set up a commission to look into the shortcomings in the Constitution of India. The Chairperson of the Commission was former Supreme Court judge M Venkatachaliah. A private committee was formed to review the Constitution under the leadership of Shri Bharat Gandhi to avoid any tampering of the basic structure in the Constitution of the country by that Commission and not to take the country towards collapse instead of upliftment. A draft of Constitution amendment was prepared by Mr. Bharat Gandhi. To know the views of the general public on this draft, Shri Bharat Gandhi travelled by foot to about 150 villages in Meerut district. On August 15, 2000, about 250 people gathered from several villages to support the draft Constitution amendment on Meerut Collectorate. Shri Bharat Gandhi discusses the draft Constitution Amendment of India with former Prime Minister Shri Vishwanath Pratap Singh. The former PM discussed the matter with former Prime Minister Shri Indrakumar Gujral. Shri V.P. Singh requested him to take Mr. Bharat Gandhi to the then President of India, Shri K.R. Narayanan, to introduce him with the entire issue of draft of constitutional amendment.  The President appreciated the efforts of Shri Bharat Gandhi. He said his office has limited powers over the proposal to amend the Constitution. But whatever is possible, he will do for the same.


In 1999, a meeting of about 15 local social activists was held at the residence of Shri Krishna Kumar Khanna, an eminent Gandhian leader and industrialist in Meerut, on the call of Shri Bharat Gandhi to empower the voters. An organization was formed in this meeting. Which was named as the Federation for Economic Freedom Movement, in short FEFM. About one  year ago, due to a 14-day fast, many social activists of Meerut came in contact with Shri Bharat Gandhi. The solitude of Shri Bharat Gandhi was over due to the incident of the fast. Many of them were on the side that Mr. Gandhi should give time to propagate in general public what he has written instead of writing confidentially. The organization FEFM continued to grow. The local media ignored the first few times. But, later on, the local media also started giving news of the organisation. Later, in 2005, a campaign for a votership amongst the  Members of Parliament was launched on behalf of the same organization.


After the discovery of the votership right in 1997, the mentor of VPI, Shri Bharat Gandhi, conducted a daily survey for 8 months in a village in Meerut- namely”Diggi”. The idea of voter pension before the villagers was placed and sought their response. It was surprising that the responses that were seen by the people of that one village were later seen by the Members of Parliament. Meanwhile, on July 1, 1998, the head of a farmer’s family poisoned both his children due to severe poverty in Meerut, poisoning his wife and eating himself poisoned and died. The 8-year-old girl was rescued by doctors in the Meerut Medical College.

This news appeared prominently in newspapers. Reading the news, the party’s inspiration, Shri Bharat Gandhi, felt as if he was responsible for the death of that poor family. He was concluded that if the right to voter pension had been received, the family would not have died of poverty. After reading the news in the morning, he was not hungry all day long. The next day also he did not eat while day. The third day also starved. The fourth day also he refused to eat anything.On the fifth day, the matter became serious. The people of his surroundings were very much interrogated. Then he explained the reason. They were a political people, associated with small political party. So, they considered it as a political fast. They told the local district magistrate that Shri Bharat Gandhi wanted the girl who survived to be treated as the doughter of the father of the nation after the death of the parents. They also informed the DM that the girl is entitled to get at least half of the average income of the country in her account on regular basis which comes rs. 1750 per month (at the prices of 1998). The said people of his surroundings took Shri Bharat Gandhi from the solitude and sat before the collector’s office. Thus, the personal atonement of Shri Bharat Gandhi, the inspiration of the party, turned into a political fast. When the collector knew the matter, he came into anger and said, “We will not do anything.” If he have to die, let him die”. Then the sixth day elapsed. The seventh day, the eighth day and the ninth day elapsed in similar manner.

On the tenth day, the team of government doctors reported that the person on fast from last 10 days would die anytime. Then, at the behest of the collector, Shri Bharat Gandhi was arrested by the police at 11 pm in the mid-night and tried to take the hospital and forcefully feed the food and tried to infuse glucose. Mr. Gandhi did not listen to the police. The policemen took the person on fast to the Civil Lines police station at 1.00 am in the mid-night. There was an order to beat the lathis and feed the food with the help of an electric current. But talking to Mr. Gandhi, the opinion of the in charge of police station changed. He decided not to torture Mr. Gandhi and told his senior officers that we could resign from our job but could not torture this man. The police left Mr. Gandhi back at 2 am in the night from where he was arrested. The 11th day of fasting elapsed. The 12th day also elapsed. The newspapers then raided the news. Because the collector had stopped the newspersons to give this news. After reading the news, local MLAs rushed to the spot. The matter was taken up to Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee through the then Agriculture Minister of the central government, Shri Somnath Shastri. The then Prime Minister, Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee, sanctioned a cheque of one lakh rupees in the name of the girl who survived the family who committed suicide. While sending a message Mr. Bharat Gandhi, said to PM that he is seeking a lifelong allowance of Rs. 1750 per month on behalf of the father of the nation for the girl. One lakh rupees will be deposited in the bank and the girl will get Rs. 18, 000 per month at the then rate of 18% interest.

Through the said union minister, the then Prime Minister requested Mr. Gandhi that his demand has been accepted, so he should end his fast. On the insistence of the dignitaries of Meerut, especially Sarvodaya leader Krishna Kumar Khanna, Shri Bharat Gandhi ended his fast on the 14th day. Now, they had the challenge of giving the votership rights to every voter, not just a girl.


Shri Bharat Gandhi read in an article in a newspaper that there are a lot of people seeking “white collar job” in the country. But men are not getting ready  for hard work available in the private sector in the country. When Shri Bharat Gandhi read it in the newspaper, he felt as if he had got the answer to his many-year-old question. He felt that if he went to the labour market, he might not hide anyone’s bread and butter. In the summer of 1997, Shri Bharat Gandhi started going to the labour market in the morning to wage wages. He was hopeful that he would be able to create a source of income for themselves by protecting his resolve.After nearly three and a half months in the labour market, he found that the situation is very critical and isolated. In search of work, Shri Bharat Gandhi was used to reach the labour market at 6 o’clock in the morning. Went back to his house at 11 o’clock. He did not get work even in the labour market also. After 3 months, Shri Bharat Gandhi wanted to know the income of the labourers who visit thd market. Then he came to know that most of the labourers could not get work and went  back to their homes at 11 o’clock. Then, like lightning suddenly in his minds, it was flashed that the machines had snatched the jobs of the people. The wages earned by the machines are going to the owners of the machine and it’s manufacturers. It was flashed in his mind that If the earnings hard work and wages of the machine are calculated and distributed to the labourers, the problem of unemployment will be eliminated. This earning to be distributed was later called “voter pension” for strategic reasons, and in 2004 it was called “votership in English and Matakartavritti in Hindi.


Shri Bharat Gandhi reached Meerut in 1996. The challenge before him was how to get cooperation of  assemblies and the Parliament of India regarding his proposals of educational reforms? He calculated that the obtaining consent of parliament is a herculean job. First challenge before him was, how the consent of the  people around may be taken? The people in the vicinity do not allow the people to agree. Therefore, unless the natural cause of opinion differences and the biological reason are known, everybody cannot be convinced. In the face of this challenge, Shri Bharat Gandhi began to go to cremation centre. There was a crowd but there was no danger of solitary fractures. His quest were to find out he answers of the questions like- what is the real reason for the opinion differences? what is the natural reason for the differences? what is the biological cause of differences? Shri Bharat Gandhi wandered for a long time in the search of such questions. He met a lot of people. But there was nosatisfactory response observed. During the preparation of the IAS, he had reada lot of subjects. He did not get the answer anywhere. He was used to read newspapers seriously. There also, the answer was nowhere. He aproached several professors of universities. But there was no satisfactory answer to these questions. He asomet people who have mastered the field of religion and spirituality. But therealso, it was not answered.

By losing tired, he began to feel that his quest might not be fulfilled. He realized that he  have to dissolve their resolutions for survival. He stopped seeking economic support from the family. He was undergoing severe suffocation of economic hardship. Even he failed to pay the rent of a small room for several months. So he had to leave the small room and go to their younger brother’s hostel. But later on, meerut migration proved to be very useful for the world. However, it was like a frightening dream for shri Bharat Gandhi, the founder of the party himself. He had never seen the pain of economic hardship that he had to undergo in life. His resolve was that he would not be able to take away someone’s bread and make him a source of income. At one point of time, they avoided breaking their resolve. In those days when he used to go to the crematorium during the day. They began to dream at night. In that dream, they began to understand the questions of their day. He used to get up at 2 or 3 o’clock. He used to make some graphics on the answer to that question. He was used to make graphics and fall asleep again. He thought that he would wake up in the morning and explain the graphics made in past night. The process lasted till 1998. He got a lot of enlightenment through dreams. Which he continued to script. The script covered so many pages that it became difficult to get published looking the then size of his purchasing power. He typed several thousand pages from a computer typist. In the hope that the someone will definitly come forward to pay the cost of typing. One day, the typist was agitated and deleted the entire matter from his computer, the matter which he had typed in  about one and a half years. The said content is still present in the manuscripts. What Mr. Bharat Gandhi knew in the dream, that  became the basis of his future thinking and writing. Only on the basis of this very knowledge later prepared a proposal for reforms in traditional political, scientific, religious and cultural thoughts. The source of all of them is the same knowledge that he later gave a word- zeropath. On the knowledge of Zeropath, a book of Shri Bharat Gandhi was created, which was named “Janopanisad”. The book and its philosophy went ahead an became the principle of the Voters Party International in 2012.


In February 1994, Bharat Ram Yadav, a student of Allahabad University, was 25 years old. The agitation was going on for the last two years against reservation in government jobs for OBCs. The agitation was seen by this student with his own eyes. Because of this agitation, the upper classmates boycotted the student. Because the student belonged to the backward class. Leaving his belongings in the room, both the room partners of upper class took a separate room. At that time, the student was absent and had gone to his ancestral village. Seeing the misbehaviour by the room partners, a revolt inculcated against casteism in the minds of the student. In the mood for this rebellion, the student decided to change his name from Bharat Ram Yadav to “Bharat Gandhi” on his 25th birthday aniversary. By changing his name, this student decided to live life with national identity rather than ethnic and caste  identity. His conclusion was that being the title of the father of the nation, “Gandhi”, the title of the sons’ and the daughters’ of the nation should be “Gandhi”. Due to this finding, the student replaced  his name “Bharat Ram Yadav or Bharat R. Yadav” by “Bharat Gandhi”. The decision to change the name was prominently published by all newspapers. In the Allahabad media, the activities of National Education and Research Foundation “NAFER” 1994 and 1995, were reported about every month, by 2 to 8 columns. All national and local newspapers like Dainik Jagran, Amar Ujala, Rashtriya Sahara, Rashtreey Sahara, , Amrit Prabhat, Times of India, Hindustan Times, Newslead were overwhelmed by innovative suggestions in the field of education being made by Shri Bharat Gandhi. All India Radio of Allahabad regularly telecasted the lecture of the  Bharat Gandhi’s in the weekly programme namely- Parikrama. The Education Department of the then Government of state and centre did not take seriously the educational reforms proposed by Shri Bharat Gandhi. One of the major reasons for this was that Bharat Gandhi was very young at that time and he was not a licensed educationist. The second reason was that the approval of parliament and two-thirds of the assemblies was necessary to implement the educational reforms he had discovered. By 1995, Bharat Gandhi had been accepted as a media educationist but the same was not done by the government.


After a period of about 1 year, in 1993 this talented student, Bharat Ram Yadav, did not only boycotted  the civil services examination but also decided to quit his studies and end his educational life. The student proposed to his family that the rituals of his marriage had been fulfilled, which he wanted to stop here. The student also informed the family that he did not want to become an IAS. He also said that he would not do any employment that would snatch the livelihood of another. The family had a mountain of misery when he listened to this promising child of his family. Because this farmer and the Labour family taught this child by putting everything at stake. Looking at the talent of the child, it was expected that this child would take all the sufferings of this family one day. Nevertheless, the family decided to accompany the child with such a serious and suicidal decision. The reason was that this child had never taken any wrong decision since childhood. The child was born in 1969 in a factory labour family in Mumbai city. It was not possible for a worker to teach a child in Mumbai. So the father sent his native district to Jaunpur in Uttar Pradesh to take primary education. Thus the child’s elementary education took place at a government school in the village. When this student named Bharat Ram Yadav decided to end his educational life, he had no work. So in 1993, the student registered a voluntary organization to improve the education system at the age of 24. Which was named-National Foundation of Education and Research, NAFER. In view of this organisation, he gained laurels in Allahabad.

The birth of Voters Party International (VPI) is based on some events that took place in 1992. These incidents relate to Shri Bharat Ram Yadav, a student from Allahabad University. He was later known as Bharat Gandhi and at present named Vishwatma. A bright student with good academic records appeared for the UPPSC exams in the year 1992 and successfully cleared the preliminary exams at one go. However, seeing the pain and agony of the families of other senior students who could not clear the final exams in spite of repeated attempts left Shri Vishwatma shocked and disturbed. Instead of rejoicing his success he was pained to understand that his success will bring joy and prosperity to himself and his family as he will be occupying one Government Post which otherwise can bring joy to another family if he sacrifices his share of Government service. The mourning of the family of other unsuccessful candidates compelled Shri Vishwatma not to think for himself but to adopt a different path so that he can be a cause of happiness to the people around him. Thus at the age of 23, he decided that he will forgo his opportunity not that will snatch another’s bread. This resolution changed his path of life. The conviction and the determined resolution of Shri Vishwatma who started a new journey pushed him to tread rough terrains, facing all odds of life, oppositions, unaccepatibility, etc. However, the determination was so strong that nothing could stop him and this new journey helped new doors, brought enlightenment and he found a new solutions of survival for the humanity of the whole world. In the process and after 20 years of untiring labour and untold hardships and miseries labour Voters Party International, (VPI) was formed in 2012 after 20 years.
