Is Raj getting it right?

The superlong weekend was spent by me lazing on the sofa and watching the innumerable news channels Tata Sky offers. There were only two main news on these channels, one was the floods in the northern part of my state and two was the Maharastra elections.

Oops, I did not get the second one right, it was Raj Thackrey and not the elections! Little, did you observe that all the news channels have forgotten the elections, the preparations for the elections, the performance of this/ previous governments and are more concentrated on the war between two sena’s?!! The news channels are bound to confuse the common man. Now if you ask me, the already confused Indian electorate are on the verge of making these three decisions

a. Congress/ NCP has fared very badly in the performance of the current government (Shekar Gupta was very vocal on this yesterday in Left Right and Center on one of the channels)

b. There is no party other than Congress/NCP to vote for as the Senas are themselves at war! This is a masterplan to nip the budding Thackerays and sing an end to the Senas.

c. Congress seems to be nowhere in picture, so lets vote for either of the two sena’s n BJP. 😉

Well none of these options currently bother me as I am quite far away from Maharastra, but well if point c is to be noted, then its a matter of concern. If MNS is a part/ supporter of the new government then definitely non Marthis in Mumbai/ rest of Maharastra are in for trouble. Raj Thackery was not even willing to use a Hindi word, leave along English on the news channels! My thought wanes away as to is he right in publicly criticizing the non-Marathi’s coming on to Mumbai.

He is right, in one sense, but indulging in public violence to achieve the same is wrong. Political parties have written a lot about creating jobs in their respective states, imagine, if I create 10 K jobs in my city and 9K are taken away by outsiders, the citizens of my city are bound to lose and there will be definitely a disharmony amongst ourselves. The same is happening even in Bangalore as well, the IT infrastructure created by the government employes more non Kannadigas than Kannadigas and the government must do something before a Raj is born here and intervene. (The other Raj of the state was a saint and is revered by almost all of the true kannadigas)

The Shiv Sena on the other hand seems to be normalising and might have realised its too late to save Mumbai any more. Hence they have reformed and are probably accepting everyone into their fold. Probably the same may apply to other states capitals which have metamorphasised into industrial hubs and nerve centers, but it might be possible to preserve the populace and culuture in the remaining secondary cities rather than creating non sense in the already established cities.

I leave this blog hoping that the Maharastra electorate will opt for the right choice.
