" Naxalism & THE CHOPPER"

Gadchiroli naxal attack on the patrolling police patry was again another example of Adhocism by our Government in handling the problem. Its a continuing saga of callous indifference of our leaders n utter failure of governance...No CHOPPER backup came for the rescue of encircled special policeforce :-(

just a day before the incident,Dharmaraobaba Atram-, Congress assembly election canditate from the same place ,was there by CHOPPER to address an election rally :-(

And esteemed Maharashtra home minister reached to console the aggrieved policemen and families next day by CHOPPER

JINNAHed Raj— Shiv-sena &Congress’ joint Venture

The Grand old man of Maratha Manoos Politics –Balasahaeb- has drawn a parallelism between Raj Thackeray and Jinnah in his recent Samna Editorial. In Long run, his prediction may turn into reality or may be not. But, undoubtedly, His lifetime aggressive political endeavor and “Dhritrashtral Putramoh” in the dusk of his political journey gave a fillip to Raj-MNS turbulence.Ultimately, you rip what you sow.

He vouched for Hinduism and ‘anti-Lungi Politics’ yet nurtured Sanjay Nirupam and Chhath festival in Mumbai in search of ‘Kursi’ and Raj was comfortable with all this when in Shiv-sena.Now pushed to the cliff, he went two-step ahead of his uncle and started anti-Hindi politics with a ‘Tadka’ of endangered Marathi manoos Asmita.He is well aware of the fact that this brand of politics is having definite appeal in Marathi land, though limited.His immediate goal is to have a share in the pie, the means to achieve it is not important for him.
Congress is engaged in dirty political maneuvering here, again. Playing divisive spoilsport with impunity is its forte since its pre-independence era .Mohammed Ali Jinnah was an ardent nationalist and a follower of Bal Gangadhar Tilak in his early days and he kept himself distanced from Muslim League Politics for years while remaining in INC.He got transformed into diametrically opposite persona of hard-line Muslim politician because of his disenchantment with overshadowing presence of Gandhi-Nehru Phenomenon in INC and their soft posturing for Hindu Revivalist Movements. They chose to ignore his insecurities and sensibilities belittling his importance and his moving to England out of frustration gave British Rulers a chance to brainwash him towards pursuing for separate Muslim Nation. Rest is a well-known geo-national divisive calamity.
If at all, any PARALLELISM is there, then--Congress is playing the villainous part of British rulers and Shiv-sena is in the role of INC. If the Esteemed Maratha Political Chieftains allow this to continue in Maratha land, then JINNAHed Raj is not a far-fetched Possibility.

The ‘Raj Thackeray’ phenomenon— Deeper malaise in our polity

Recent rise of Raj Thackeray and his brand of aggressive violent politics in Maratha land gives a ‘déjà vu’ feeling about reckless sense and sensibility of mainstream Indian polity. This is a longstanding malaise which perpetuates our socio-political fabric with disastrous consequences yet our political chieftains refuse to take any lesson and keep on playing havoc with social diversity and national integrity for their short-term gains with impunity.

Here I am going to elaborate on some of previous similar political commissions and omissions which cost dearly to our country.

But first Raj Thackeray…....

In My view, following factors are involved in facilitating his emergence on Maratha Political Landscape----

1. Bal Thackeray’s “PUTRAMOH” is the prime trigger which created identity crisis for Raj .He opted to go two steps ahead of the shiv-sena brand of aggressive posturing in politics because he had graduated from the same.

2. The existing political parties and leaders of Maharastra seem to have failed to address the grassroot aspirations and maladies of Maratha Manoos, taking them for granted once they grabbed power. Disgruntled Marathi people opted to go with Raj even though many are not comfortable with his ways and means.

3. Bal Thackeray emerged on Indian political spectrum in seventies because of wrong appeasement policies and Delhi-centric politics of Congress. It wasn’t limited only to Maharastra. Regional political parties in various other states, ether south or north, emerged and elbowed congress out of its cozy complacency. But over the years, Shiv-sena seems to have stagnated and entangled in dynastic imbroglio with this inevitable outcome in the form of MNS-Raj.

4. Changing demography of Mumbai, poverty-stricken farmers committing suicide, rising unemployment of Marathi youths, lesser space for Marathi on the national scene despite rich socio-cultural and strong economic clout and despicable political posturing by Lalu-Mulayam-Amarsingh brand of leaders etc. pushed the common Marathi manoos towards Raj-MNS platform in search of identity.

The backdoor divisive politics of congress trying to promote Raj-MNS to neutralize Shiv-sena is short-sighted and highly deplorable. They did the same with ‘Asom Gan Sangram Parishad’ and Assam is still paying the price. Indira Gandhi nurtured Bhindrawale to counter Alkalis and it led to khalistani-mayhem throughout Punjab and rest of the nation. Congress never learns from its past mistakes and keeps on playing the divisive game which they seem to have inherited from their British-cultured great leaders.
