Anti-Bihari utterances: Raj trying to score over Uddhav



Patna,(BiharTimes): By giving a new twist to the infamous New Delhi gang-rape case Maharashtra Navnirman Sena president Raj Thackeray and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat have not only diluted the serious issue but have, in a way, also played into the hands of those who were lenient towards the police on the tragic incident.
Though Raj accused the Biharis for rapes in various places in the country, just because one of the six accused was from Bihar, what he forgot is that that the ancestral home of the victim girl is just a few kilometres from Bihar––that is in Ballia district of East UP.

Just across river Ganga in Buxar lives her relatives, where the RJD chief, Lalu Yadav, went the other day to console them. Raj Thackeray needs to be reminded that Buxar is in Bihar, so in a way the victim too is related to the state.

As rapists have no religion, caste or nationality––in fact in many cases they are committed within the family––such absurd utterances need to be rejected out of hand.

As Raj has scored over his cousin Uddhav after the death of uncle Bal Thackeray there is denying the fact that he wants to fill the vacuum created after the death of Shiv Sena patriarch. He thinks that tougher the stand he takes the more he would get acceptance in his home state, Maharashtra. But then that is not true. Had this been the case MNS or Shiv Sena would have come to power in the state long back.

Instead it came to power only once and that in alliance with BJP a year after the Mumbai riots of 1992-93. The riots took place after the demolition of Babri Masjid on Dec 6, 1992 and the party fully exploited the polarized atmosphere. Otherwise neither the Shiv Sena nor the MNS anywhere close to power in the state
