Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is quick on the uptake, after its resounding victory in Uttar Pradesh (UP). It is now eyeing Southern state Telangana. The BJP leaders are trying to woo Dalits in the region, as they have tasted success of this strategy in UP. But their aspirations have been nipped in the bud, what with KCR implementing their schemes, in giving utmost prominence to Dalits. KCR knows that he cannot play on Telangana sentiment in 2019 polls. So he too is expanding his base further.
