Religion politics have not fared well in the South

Accordingly Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is campaigning for the BJP in Telangana ahead of the Assembly elections, has once again evoked Sardar Patel and said that Telangana wouldn't have been a reality if Sardar Patel did not free the erstwhile Hyderabad State from Nizam Rule. Meanwhile stating that Patel is the reason for India's unity, he said we can say "Bharat Maata ki Jai" in India only because of Patel.

Furthermore in case of the South, evoking sentiments of Sardar Patel or any other national figure does not work as regional leaders have dominated the political landscape in the South. Reportedly in a new state like Telangana, evoking leaders from the Telangana movement or from the region could have proved to be a huge plus point for the BJP but it has missed the opportunity.

Moreover additionally, Modi has also attacked Congress while going soft on regional parties in the states. While these remarks come at a time where non-NDA regional allies are coming together against the BJP to form an Alternative Front and further going by the BJP's election strategies for Telangana, it looks like the party needs to understand regional politics well and appeal to the locals on an issue based approach.
