Balasaheb is no more…..who is his better successor?

Bal Thackery the controversial yet popular Maratha Leader has left a huge baggage of his popularity and fan following after his demise which can still play a prominent role in Maharashtra politics ! Its a human tendency to look upon  for a replacement, equally competent,of  such mass leaders.Often,obvious choice is any immediate blood-relation of  such crowd puller!

Uddhav Thackeray, son of Balasaheb was undoubtedly a perfect son but is he a perfect successor to  the throne of Bal Thackeray,is a question which arose since the popularity of Balasaheb’s nephew Raj Thackeray who was considered far more competent than Uddhav and quit the Shiv Sena to form his own political party , MNS, when he understood his role would remain limited in the Sena.

He proved his worth by taking his party head strong against Shiv Sena within 6 years and it was only this year,Bal Thackeray had managed to bring Raj close to Sena to support eachother’s party rather than behaving rivals.

Well, Uddhav is the obvious replacement to Bal Thackeray, by virtue of his birth, as his son but is Raj a better successor to encash the political branding which his uncle has created ?

Raj or Uddhav who deserves to en-cash Bal Thackeray’s legacy?

 

 

 

 

Balasaheb Thackeray dies at 86

After a long fight with prolonged illness, the Maratha Tiger and the Shiv Sena Head was declared dead at around 3:30 pm,today !

A cartoonist, a journalist , an influential speaker,a political leader , a godfather, a mentor, a visionary and to some, a reason to fear ,  Balasaheb Thackeray’s name would remain inevitable in the Maharashtrian politics ! Often compared to a tiger by some and to Adolf  Hitler by many,Bal Thackeray was a known personality not only in the nation but also worldwide !

May his soul rest in peace!
