The BJP national leadership is focussing on SC and ST constituencies for the ensuing Assembly elections. Accordingly, the leadership has summoned heads of the party’s SC Morchas from Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Telangana and Mizoram as part of the election preparatory meetings for the ensuing polls.
