BJP turns up Hindu nationalist heat with renamings, statue plan

A near clean-sweep in Uttar Pradesh, the state of 220 million people that sends the highest number of lawmakers to the lower house of parliament, helped Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) win its biggest mandate in three decades in 2014.
