Bharatiya Janata Party, Sikkim (BJP Sikkim) is a state unit of BJP in Sikkim.

Incumbent President is Dal Bahadur Chettri, better known as D. B. Chauhan. BJP Sikkim participated in the Sikkim Legislative Assembly election from 1994. And its first Lok Sabha election for Sikkim was 2009.

In August 2019, 10 Members of Sikkim Legislative Assembly quit former ruling party, Sikkim Democratic Front (SDF) to join BJP Sikkim. [3]

Before the October 2019 by-election (3 constituencies) for Sikkim Legislative Assembly, BJP Sikkim formed with the ruling party Sikkim Krantikari Morcha (SKM). The Chief Minister and the president of SKM, Prem Singh Tamang (P. S. Golay) stood from Poklok-Kamrang, and 2 BJP candidates stood from Martam Rumtek and Gangtok. [4] All 3 candidates won their seat, and this was the first time that BJP could get seat in Sikkim Legislative Assembly by election. [5]

However, after by-election, BJP Sikkim has kept its position as the opposition party in Sikkim Legislative Assembly yet.
