The BJP is battling to contain the fallout of the Dalit protests that have scorched north India. On one hand, its own MPs have written letter after letter, claiming that the government has not addressed Dalit concerns, even as Dalits continue to face a backlash from the police and upper castes for daring to protest. On the other hand, Rahul Gandhi leading protests at Raj Ghat to address, amongst other issues, violence against Dalits. The BJP is now saying it will hold its own pro-Dalit hunger strike and ramp up its Dalit outreach. But will that be enough?
