Aha...so finally Raj Thackrey is threading the path that his uncle had set out three decades back. The 'marathi manoos' campaign is back!!! I wonder what happend to their party's manifesto during BMC elections. I remember Raj said that Mumbai is a metropolitan city and that everyone living here is a maharashtrian. He claimed that he wont commit the mistake that his uncle did. But as they say change is the only constant thing in life. So with the change in time, MNS policies also underwent a huge change. Now even he is equally into bhagoing bhaiyyas and biharis. O.K accepted that mumbai is being exploited beyond capacity and that the other states are doing nothing about improving their infrastructure or providing jobs for their people. But does that mean kii you shoo away everyone from here? Does mr. Raj Thackrey know that probably the doodh that his milkman provides is from a tabela managed by a bhaiyya? Does he know that the tasty dishes that he eats is mostly sold by these bhaiyyas? Does he know that it is these gujju's who make Mumbai the finanical hub of the nation? He knows all that...but yet he will make baseless comments, create confusion in the city and hit the headlines for a week or so. Yes he got a good publicity...probably will win votes from some loyal fans too. But then to what effect? Nashik's industries are already facing the brunt for this foolish attack. They are now running into loss coz all the bhaiyyas and biharis have run back to their hometown or hiding near shirdi. What Raj ideally should have done was sit together with the central government and discuss few plans to seek solution to this problem. But since politics is all about shoo-shaa and publicity, I really cannot expect Raj Thackrey to do that.
I dont know what's going to happen to my city. Despite being a south-indian, I am so much in love with Mumbai that I cant imagine myself settling anywhere outside Mumbai. I hope and sincerely pray that a decent solution comes out of this messy situation and my city is saved from further disgrace. And yes my mom hopes that Big B does not leave the industry on bhai Amar Singh's advice.
