Nation At 9: 2016 Now a nationalism verdict?

There are five state elections in April and May this year. In the run-up to these polls, the BJP's top pitch is — nationalism. And its slogan is — Bharat Mata Ki Jai!
Emphasising on “Bharat Mata ki Jai,” our Finance Minister and BJP leader Arun Jaitley said, “We believe this is one issue on which there should be no debate.”  Indicating towards the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, Jaitley said that the country voted for a determined government, nationalist policies and progressive governance. 
Crediting themselves, BJP said that is their party which brought in the essential Naga accord. The Minister emphasised on the importance of nationalism and mentioned that their focus will be development of the states and strengthening their hold over the same for the betterment of the states.
However, Rahul Gandhi has hit back at the opposition asking them about JNU, Uttarakhand and Arunachal Pradesh. Opposition is also saying that the BJP does not have a monopoly over nationalism. Who is a nationalist? What is the test of nationalism? Is the BJP squeezing the Congress out of the 'N' space?
