BJP does not see Sabarimala as a political wedge in Kerala

BJP is banking on the upper caste outfit, the Nair Service Society, shifting support in its favour over the Sabarimala issue
Thiruvananthapuram: The Sabarimala controversy was supposed to have become a major wedge for the Bharatiya Janata Party in the upcoming parliamentary elections in Kerala. It inflamed passions and led people to agitate on the streets like no other event in recent past. But now, the party does not want to be seen as making the temple-related controversy its main poll plank in Kerala, according to two party leaders Mint spoke to.
