The national goon is out, fear him!
These words silently crossed the all the national TV channels as its anchors with abnormally straight hair tireless spoke about his release. Images of a railway coach set ablaze in Bihar flashed on the right part of the screen as a video people burning crackers and celebrating holi, Diwali and whatever they could played repeatedly on the left. Two people, same goal, same ambition but perverted thoughts. It happens only in India. As I wasted my precious time on those news channels a dim but clear figure of the whole story came in front of me. The politics behind Raj Thackeray’s wild run to a tamed animal in the prison. Congress had let the Raj free till his violence and his political ambitions took tool on the Indians and his supported created havoc in Maharashtra and vandalized people and property. The congress had aimed to create a rift between Bal Thackeray and Raj Thackeray by letting him run free. As time moved on the crevices became wide gaps in the Thackeray camp. And when the water crossed the threshold, they tamed him with the power of law. The power of law tamed by the government, did as told and tamed the wild Raj.
A perfect hindi film script. But playing with fire is not so easy, a thing they should’ve remebered. The ripples reflected back on the congress as they had a rift in their own coalition when people accussed congress of delaying the decision to incarcerate Raj Thackeray.
This big picture now makes Raj a pawn of the game played by big daddies like vilas rao deshmukh, Sharad Powar,laloo prasad and many others.
The sad part coming out of it is that our hard earned money os being wasted and burnt up on satisfying the egos our politicians. I firmly believe that if they focus more on our developement rather than denigrating opposition, they can win more votes and genuinely take the country ahead.
