Adityanath’s 80:20 formulation comes at a time when the BJP is battling to retain its crucial non-Yadav OBC voters who comprise nearly 35 per cent of the electorate. The idea of a ‘political Hindu’ monolith is being challenged by the growing assertion of smaller OBC parties who feel stifled by the BJP’s upper caste driven social engineering.
