Raj Thackerey in the news again ?
Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief – Raj Thackeray supported MNS members attacking the offices of the Central Board of Film Censors on 14th November 2011 at around 4pm in opposition to the demand they made, months back, to the board, to include at least one Marathi Manus in the board to censor Marathi movies.
Is it not enough to know the guidelines and follow the same while judging movies ? Is it that important to include atleast one “Maharashtrian” from theatre or Marathi cinema ?
Well, supporting the move of his party members ransacking some offices just because they do not agree to their party’s request cannot be appreciated. Are there no other ways the MNS finds suitable other than voilent attacks , be it on the North Indian rickshaw and taxi drivers or destroying office properties ?
Is Anna Hazare’s non-voilent methods of fasting and raising support not an example of better way of keeping one’s point ?
Also speaking on Rahul Gandhi’s rally in Phulpur, Utter Pradesh, he claimed Rahul Gandhi was ill-informed about U.P. after Rahul made a comment that for how long youths from the state need to go and beg for work in Maharashtra ,pointing at the lack of employment opportunities in the state .
Thackeray viewed that the people of Utter Pradesh must ask Rahul what his party had done for the state in the past so many years for the state as every member of the Gandhi family, Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi and even Rahul himself have been elected from UP and Congress party had got opportunities to rule the state for decades in the past. The question raised on Rahul Gandhi and Congress is worth giving a thought !
Is it right to claim the present government of Mayawati as the sole reason of sufferings in Utter Pradesh? What about the governments prior to this ? Did the political parties prior to Mayawati’s BSP do their share of work ?
