News Delhi: PM Narendra Modi's note ban has done the trick for BJP. Widely seen as an anti-rich step, note ban seems to have done broken the caste barrier in UP, with forward castes, OBCs and SCs voting in unison for the BJP. Note ban and a caste-based ticket distribution is said to have brought these castes ( considered traditional vote bank of other parties) in BJP's fold.
These facts emerge out of a Post Poll Analysis done by Today's Chanakya for News24.
