aj Thackeray and Sharad Pawar, both launched simultaneous attacks on Modi but none of them has the courage to win elections in the State. Sharad Pawar is never steady in his comments and Raj, who once endorsed Narendra Modi as a PM candidate, is now spewing venom; but, in spite of their attacks, no one has the guts to stop BJP from coming to power. Divide and Rule can work as a policy for a while but if your party is created on this motto, then you won’t survive for long. You will be used by others for their political benefit which may make you feel that you are successful but in reality, you live the life of a parasite. That is exactly what happened with Raj Thackeray. Raj Thackeray started the party on the plank of Marathi Manoos and started atrocities against Biharis (largely all north India) in Maharashtra who were there to earn their livelihood. When Raj created MNS, his goons were not stopped by the then Congress and NCP mainly to counter SS and BJP alliance. Congress never took action on MNS to ensure that the vote for SS splits between MNS and SS. Over a period of time, this policy of MNS backfired. Also with BJP becoming the senior partner in Maharashtra, they can’t allow the atrocities on north Indians as BJP is a national party. So, essentially there is a very limited role for a party like MNS, they are often used to cut votes for a party. PRP in Andhra was used in a similar fashion by YSR in 2009 polls; though PRP was not formed on similar lines of MNS, they ended up being used in a similar fashion.
Raj Thackeray is a failed politician who is dancing on the tunes of Sharad Pawar. A tacit understanding seems to be in place between the Congress-NCP alliance and the Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena or the MNS. Recently, Raj Thackeray hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah during his Gudi Padwa rally at the same venue where his cousin Uddhav Thackeray’s party, the Shiv Sena holds its annual Dusshera rally. Raj Thackeray outlined how he will campaign against the BJP and in the one-hour speech, he tore into the BJP, attacking it over the suicide attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama that killed 40 CRPF soldiers. He used newspaper articles and clips of PM Modi’s speeches to highlight inconsistencies in the statements on several issues like Aadhaar and handling of the Kashmir issue. The MNS leader used snapshots of newspaper articles as he went point by point, making the rally a complete takedown of PM Modi and the BJP.
Raj Thackeray is expected to campaign for Congress-NCP candidates without sharing the stage with them by holding rallies in western Maharashtra and Marathwada. In return, his party expects that the Congress-NCP combine will give it some seats in the assembly elections scheduled later this year. Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar admitted to the possibility of the BJP emerging as the single-largest party in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, but not with the kind of majority that would ensure Prime Minister Narendra Modi a second term. Meanwhile, Sharad Pawar too claimed that the country was witnessing a definite shift in public mood against the BJP. Rural India is practically bent on defeating Modi. They are against the Modi government, they are unhappy with the Modi government. Pawar’s daughter Supriya Sule dispelled suggestions of a rift in their party on account of the NCP chief’s nephew Parth Pawar. Pawar had reversed his decision to contest the elections after Parth threw his hat in the ring recently. Some saw this as a sign of family rivalry. Pawar rejected reports of a divided opposition too, saying that he definitely saw victory in store for the opposition coalitions in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. Even in electorally crucial Uttar Pradesh, he did not see any problems with the Congress not being a part of the Bahujan Samaj Party-Samajwadi Party coalition. Sharad Pawar is a powerful and seasoned politician, whereas Raj Thackeray failed to reach to the peak. While all the migrants learn Marathi and gel with Marathi culture, the UP and Bihari don’t learn Marathi and they have some kind of superiority complex although they work as labourers. North Indians always force others to speak in Hindi claiming it to be National Language. No matter how long North Indians stay in other states, they never learn the regional language. Even the President of India is asking the migrants to respect the regional culture. Asking Marathi people to stick to their culture is nothing wrong. A corporate would not like to set up an industry in UP but in Maharashtra, because there have been instances of burning alive the owners of industries by UP people. Businessmen feel safe in Maharashtra because of the culture, peace, and cooperation they get in the state and that is why they set up industries in Maharashtra because of which many people get a livelihood. The least everyone could do is learn the language of the soil of Maharashtra. In the era of development, Modi overpowered Thackeray claims and he lost elections miserably.
As a person, Raj Thackeray is very friendly and down to earth; he is people’s leader. People from all over Maharashtra come to him with their problem. He is a hero for the Marathi youth but at the same time, he is a villain for the UP and Biharis because his Image is portrayed the same by Media. He fights for the betterment of Marathi people and local Mumbaikars. However, people have disowned him on polling booth. Let’s see if this time Pawar and Raj’s attacks can really prevent Modi from becoming PM of India again!
