With the total of 106 seats the Sena -BJP alliance stood out of all speculations of being thrown out this time in the country’s richest civic body election – BMC.
The NCP – Congress Alliance got 66 seats while 28 seats went to MNS. 27 went others including independent candidates out of the total 227 seats. Joining hands with some independent candidates the Sena-BJP would be back in power of BMC.
While much was anticipated about MNS nothing seemed impressive enough to shake the ruling Sena-BJP alliance out from the throne of BMC.
Raj Thackeray analysed low-turnouts of voters as the major reason of Sena’s win and also the alliance of BJP. Well, reasons may be whatever, results clearly state that Raj Thackeray and his MNS has a long way to go unearth the Shiv Sena and divert Sena supporters.
Early, this year, a complaint against Veena Malik’s semi nude photograph published in an Indian magazine with an ISI tattoo on hand has brought her back in news. An FIR from Mahidul Hassan, the imam of mosque in Jamia Nagar,Delhi alleges Malik of hurting public sentiments because of her semi-nude photo on the cover page of a magazine and also claiming her to be staying in India for spying for ISI. Delhi Police on 14th February’2012 told the court probing progress on the complaint that Veena Malik had denied all allegations and has declared that her photo was worked – upon by the magazine company and that she has not posed nude. Also she denied any relation with Pakistani Intelligence, ISI. Detailed hearing on the matter is scheduled on March 2nd this year!
Well,controversies around Bollywood stars and strugglers always create a hype thereby keeping them remembered and also helps them get work in the showbiz. The controversial magazine photograph where she is seen posing almost nude with an ISI tattoo on her arm has surely got her back in limelight after Big Boss 4 and has given her some Bollywood Item numbers. So far it has helped her and time will let us know if this publicity stunt ends of costing her career in Bollywood.
In a recent interview , Sena Supremo Bal Thackeray had made an open offer to rebel nephew , Raj Thackeray also the Supremo of MNS (another Sena, split out of Shiv Sena) to take a first step ahead and he is open to accept Raj back in Shiv Sena. The doors of Shiv Sena are always open for Raj provided he initiates.
Answering this Raj opened his heart out saying he could walk 100 steps for his uncle Bal Thackeray whom he claimed still respects very much and also declared his grudge against the functioning of Uddhav Thackeray , the son of the Shiv Sena Supremo and other Sena leaders! He explained about his services in Shiv Sena were only limited to addressing rallies prior to elections while key jobs were handled by others.
Well, this is not a hidden fact that Uddhav and Raj never got along with each other and hence it was Raj who had to take a call, either to be in the Shiv Sena and keep doing as being told or leave politics . However, he had other things in mind and hence floated his own party. The Unique Selling Point of the new party remained the same as the Sena’s where love for state of Maharashtra and Marathis were highlighted. The only difference was Shiv Sena with the advent of time since birth had become a little diplomatic as they had tied – up with national level parties while the new Sena , being a new – born baby and desperate to make its presence felt , has been aggressive towards portraying as a party just for Marathis.
Raj Thackeray has been following the footsteps of his uncle exactly , so far hence more than other opponent political parties , it’s the MNS which is becoming a bigger challenge for Shiv Sena as both share the common vote-bank of Marathi Manus.
American President Barrack Obama has insisted US Companies not to hire skilled labours from India and China in fields of science , technology and engineering instead create jobs for people of the country. He has also promised incentives to companies willing to follow his appeal. He has plans all set for the same where he wishes to reward quality teachers. He insisted schools should give teaching just not for preparing for tests but for knowledge.
This is the most a President can do and he indeed is. Not sure about China but in India , the level of education may or may not be very high but the pressure of the same remains very high from the very moment a kid starts going to kindergartens. Curriculum books are forced deep inside the bones of even the worst of a student and out of them come out the chosen engineers , doctors and scientists. Surely India would never cease to keep producing highly educated professionals because getting jobs and settling down in the USA, UK or Australia is among common dreams of Indians. Somehow we Indians are in love with Dollars and would chase any standards set to reach up to the level.
Shiv Sena Supremo Bal Thackeray hinted about his open arms for nephew Raj Thackeray back in Shiv Sena provided Raj initiates the move. Also the Sena Supremo admitted that Marathi Manus votes are getting distributed between MNS and Shiv Sena because their split.
Well, it does not seem Raj Thackeray will ever get back to Sena.In fact he has already walked few steps ahead successfully with MNS, now being considered a strong political party throughout Maharashtra, within few years. However, the fact for now remains that the new baby born out of the Sena is making the Sena weak by eating up considerable number of Marathi Manus Votes of the Sena. In the process , its the NCP and Congress which are becoming stronger.
Politics on the basis of religion , caste and state is getting weaker in urban cities of India, thanks to the minimum level of literacy in these areas however a great part of India is still rural and easily gets influenced by all the political parties who under the blanket of well-wishers of particular religion ,caste or state , keep the flame of divide and rule alive throughout the nation.
