Talking Shiv Sena sort of wakes up and joins the corruption bandwagon

Shiv Sena was fast asleep when their loser partner BJP and mastermind RSS were capturing national attention by supporting Anna Hazare and Dhongi Baba Ramdev with their 'anti corruption' shenanigans.

After inviting Aamir Khan to some function, the Sena had nothing else to do , so they decided to jump on the anti corruption bandwagon. I pity poor Balasaheb!

Shiv Sena asks MLAs to pull up govt on scams
By: Ravikiran Deshmukh Date: 2011-07-23 Place: Mumbai

Fed up of detractors, Uddhav Thackeray arms party legislators with bag of documents related to scandals under current regime, directs them to be aggressive to DF government

Having attracted considerable censure from all quarters, the Shiv Sena has decided to pay it forward. Come Monday and the state legislature will morph into a political battleground, with the Sena assuming an offensive posture to put the Congress-led Democratic Front government in a fix over the controversial scams and failures.

In a meeting of party legislators yesterday at Shivalaya, Sena's office at Nariman Point, Executive President Uddhav Thackeray enumerated 35 hot issues that the Sena will pull up the government for. Handing over a bag of dossiers related to the listed controversies, he asked the legislators, in a stern directive, to use the incriminating documents in aggressively hauling the Prithviraj Chavan government on the carpet.

"I am not ready to accept that my MLAs are not studious or are not consistent in the State Assembly or the Council," said Uddhav while addressing the legislators. "Details of the issues that I have given to you are for raising debate and corner the government. The Congress-NCP ministers should find it tough to face you," said Thackeray.

The move to fusillade the government comes after Uddhav found himself constantly being picked on ” from cousin and MNS chief Raj Thackeray over the Sena's feeble performance as a major Opposition party, from the media over potholed roads, from Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar who has questioned Sena chief Bal Thackeray's contribution to the overall development of state.

On the boil
Though its outward symptoms are being felt now, the discontent over being the Aunt Sally in state politics has been simmering for quite some time in the party's higher circles. Reportedly, in May, soon after the State Budget Session, Sena supremo Bal Thackeray had chided party legislators over their watery response to the "government's failure" in various spheres and asked them to be more vigorous in their response toward it.

In keeping with Balasaheb's word, Thackeray, in yesterday's meeting, told the MLAs to vehemently raise issues such as the murder of MiD DAY journalist J Dey, environmental violations in the development of Lavasa hill city, involvement of the ruling party's workers in criminal activities and so on.

Besides the rabble-rousing address, a presentation on the Jaitapur Nuclear Power Project proposed to be set up in Ratnagiri district was made at the meeting.

There were also speeches by experts on long-due mill land issue and rehabilitation of mill workers. The purpose was, again, to arm his party men with ammunition to fire the salvo at the government.

Going solo
Such was the anguish of the Sena after being belittled over a sustained span of time that it decided on the strategy of taking on the government on its own, with no word of consultation with its partner, the BJP. Despite a coalition of around two decades, the Sena asked its legislators to adopt the party line, sans a joint strategy of going on the offensive along with its saffron partner.

Hot issues
The list of issues the Shiv Sena plans to take up with the government include:
* Senior MiD DAY journalist J Dey's murder
* Hiranandani Garden land scam in Powai
* Subhash Nagar redevelopment project in Chembur
* Government failure in detecting the serial bomb blasts on July13
* Power supply issues
* Demand for white papers on state's financial position,
* Scams from state water conservation department headed by Sunil Tatkare
* Deputy CM Ajit Pawar's involvement in the Maharashtra State Cooperative Bank scandal
* Scam in the Department of Sales Tax, involving tax-defaulting steel traders
* Law and order situation in the state,
* Robberies, with atrocities against women, female infanticides, other crimes on the rise
* The MMRDA's functioning and it's alleged instrumentalisation by the state to compete with Sena-ruled BMC

Unhappy Re: Shiv Sena sort of wakes up and joins the corruption bandwagon

Dear EcharchaBhai!

It is a honor amongst the anti corruption resident people like me to support anyone who could muster the moral challenge to challenge corruption and Shiv Sena did so, a bit belatedly perhaps, but very accordingly to my belief that Hindutva parties have the moral advantage in the present context of this universe.

Your pet Congress is a sleaze slimeball in comparison. Your beloved Italian Mata Sonia is everything wretched that could happen to an average resident Indian. Something you will never understand or fathom being the apathetic NRI you are.

Sorry, but that's the bitter truth!

I used to like the BJP and Shiv Sena but they have learnt nothing and hence doomed to be in Opposition for the near future. I decided to stop supporting losers and those who betrayed their core voter base.
