Day 148

Now it seems that Bal Thackeray is adopting the same way that of his nephew, Raj Thackeray. He has attacked Sachin Tendulkar for making statements and commenting on Raj Thackeray. Couple of days back, Sachin Tendulkar has said that Mumbai doesn’t belong to Maharashtra only. Mumbai is a part of India. Now Bal Thackeray is angry on him. The Shiv Sena supreme has written in his editorial in Samna, the magazine of Shiv Sena that Sachin should avoid the political pitch. It’s not like the cricket pitch which he rules. Bal Thackeray has written that the comments coming from Sachin’s side is attack on the Marathi pride. He has clearly advised Sachin to stay away from making political comments like this. He was warned Sachin that Sachin will get run out if he dares to make such comments again about the Marathi pride. Now I think the uncle-nephew dew have gone crazy. They are playing with the sentiments of the people to increase their vote bank only. In the recently concluded Maharashtra assembly election, the Shiv Sena has performed very badly. Have Bal Thackeray and his party done some constructive work in Maharashtra then they would have performed well in the election. So instead of making linguistic issue larger than other issues, Bal Thackeray and Raj Thackeray should do some constructive work for the Marathi people. the Marathi people need better chance of employment and other facilities rather than long speeches from uncle and nephew. Bal Thackeray has clearly told Sachin that it might be the case that Mumbai is commercial capital of India but it belongs to Maharashtra first then it belongs to India. Now this is clear hatred speech. People from other parts of India has also worked with Marathi people to make Mumbai progress. But Bal Thackeray and Raj Thackeray have forgotten that.
