Ahead of Tamil Nadu elections, Modi reaches out to Dalits

Even as the BJP-led Central government faces heat following the suicide of a Dalit scholar in Hyderabad, Prime Minister Narendra Modi chose to woo Dalits in his first public rally in election-bound Tamil Nadu. With Dalits making up 21% of the electorate in Tamil Nadu, he promised that reservation would continue. With less than three months to go for elections in Tamil Nadu, the BJP is not only keen in keeping all alliance options open but is hoping that it's strategy to woo Dalit votes is a winning one.
