Raj Thackeray, the MNS supremo who had split from Shiv Sena about 6 years back and formed his own party, seems to be making news whenever, he wishes to.All he has to do is dare the govt of Maharashtra or dare the Biharis. Although this time he dared the Hindi News Channels and threatened to ban them in Maharashtra. While , the learned seem content addressing Raj as publicity hungry and his aggressive and communal speeches as the source of his publicity, there is no denying that he is slowly cutting the roots and the impact of the mother party – Shiv Sena. He has been gathering attention by targeting Biharis and spreading hate movements against them while Sena Supremo , Bal Thackeray , had targeted the Tamils staying in Mumbai ,some decades back. Raj’s political party is perfect replica of Shiv Sena and even his strategies are all copied from Shiv Sena. All is working well for him , at present, as he has been successful to divert the ‘Marathi Manus’ vote-bank of Shiv Sena towards himself , thereby weakening the Shiv Sena impact with every passing day. Who knows , coming soon,the nation may experience Raj Thackeray ,even copying Bal Thackeray’s dress-code to become the ultimate replacement for Shiv Sena. 🙂
Digvijay Singh, who has termed Baba Ramdev a ‘thug'(cheat),Anna Hazare and his movement politically motivated and went to the extent of criticizing Mamata Banerjee (and was humiliated by his own party for criticizing Mamata), has picked up a new war against CAG chief ,Vinod Rai. He has termed him politically ambitious after the CAG report has shaken the clear-image of the Prime Minister , Manmohan Singh.
Looks like he is being given unofficial right by the Govt to counter-accuse anyone and everyone who dares against his party. 😀
