Mahan Dal (translation: Great Party) is an Indian political party founded by Keshav Dev Maurya based in Uttar Pradesh, India.


On 11 March 2014 Maurya in a joint press conference with Rashtriya Parivartan Dal's chief DP Yadav said "Our party does not have any ideology... Our main aim is to grab power for the welfare of our society... Every one is doing so but I say it openly.".[1] Maurya added that his party did not "have the position to contest in the Lok Sabha polls alone" and its "alliance with RPD will continue in future too".[citation needed]


2014 Loksabha election

Mahan Dal had joined the Indian National Congress-led United Progressive Alliance. In western Uttar Pradesh, Mahan Dal contested on three Lok Sabha constituencies, Badaun, Nagina and Etah[2] while Rashtriya Lok Dal contested in eight constituencies as per an arrangement with INC.[3]

Mahan Dal claimed that the OBC voters of western UP specially Shakyas, Mauryas and Kushwahas would support them in the election[4] but Mahan Dal candidates lost on all three allocated seats

2019 general election

The Congress leader said the party will follow the type of politics in which everyone is represented equally. Congress will fight with ‘full might’ as party allies with Mahan Dal said by Priyanka Gandhi.[5]
