Hint: When a group of people of either the same ideology or otherwise come together, organize themselves, and aspire to get elected through elections we can call this assembly of that group of people a political party. India follows a multi-party system.

Complete answer:
The history of India's past is full of examples where movements have led to the formation of political parties.
In the northeastern state of Assam, there were allegations of illegal migrants migrating from the country of Bangladesh to the region of Assam. This cause has led a group of people to voice their opinions and agitate against this infiltration, which was feared to change the original demography of the region. There was six years-long agitations by the all Assam students union. This social movement started peacefully and gradually continued for many years. When the representatives from a diverse set of organizations came together, this has led to the formation of the political party named Asom Gana Parishad. So, we can infer that it is a political party that has originated from a movement.
The Bahujan Samajwadi party was formed with an aim to represent the people from the different sections of society like the SCs, STs, etc. So option C is incorrect
Akali Dal is a political party based in the state of Punjab. The majority of members hail from the Sikh community and they wanted to give representation to the Sikh community of the country. So option A is incorrect.
So, the correct answer is Option B.

Note: When a group of people comes to the forefront to protest against the government policies or raise their voice against a burning social issue, we can call them a political movement. The most recent example of the formation of a political party from a social movement is that of the Aam Aadmi Party.
