Senior BJP leader and Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu said his party, which had done well in the recent rural elections in Odisha, would try to come to power in the state in the next election.

Dalits constitute over 17 per cent of the state's electorate and have never been traditional voters of the saffron party, which is now wooing them aggressively. Whoever is committed to the leadership of Modi and Amit Shah are welcome.
