Raj Thackeray targets Modi and his Gujarati community

https://www.google.co.in/amp/www.fin.../1104265/lite/

Gujaratis are the new targets on Raj's radar , as he struggles for political relevance. Also he claimed that padman and toilet ek prem katha were movies sponsored by the government . He also questioned the need for state funeral for Sridevi.

Looks like actors are also politically Savvy. Akshay Kumar's Sasurji Kaka was a Congress MP. Despite that, he does films on schemes close to government and gets close to BJP. Wasnt he also invovled in some sainik initiative to raise funds for Martyrs.

Dont remember how, but isnt Aamir Khan also seen in some goverment ads now after falling off after his intolerance remark?

Re: Raj Thackeray targets Modi and his Gujarati community

So what if govt sponsored? I thought padman was sponsored by videshi pad making companies.. despite having been in indian market for decades now, their penetration is still quite abysmal.

Raj T should close shop and focus on bizness.. he is not able to do anything but talk strong. May be he’s sticking in politics to maintain his bizness

Re: Raj Thackeray targets Modi and his Gujarati community

most of the middle class maharashtrians in mumbai have become supporters of BJP , leaving only the lower class who's vote is divided between the two senas . both the senas feel increasingly marginalised in front of the modi juggernaut . hence the attacks on modi .

because the remaining marathi vote is split between the two senas , it becomes ineffective and gives the BJP clear advantage . the need of the hour is for raj and uddhav to make an alliance , but uddhav is afraid that the more dynamic raj will become sole leader . so he is unwilling for an alliance .

Sangh is inclusive (at least) for Hindus, no caste no SC ST treatment, never caste of anybody is discussed, in fact the only org that is bringing Hindus together.. rest are busy dividing. Sangh was created by a Marathi Brahmin, and mostly Marathis are leading Sangh..

From the beginning BJP has had many MPs from SC/ST, at one time they had most SC/ST MPs. It's high time Hindus are not divided along state lines.. immense problems are there in India, one less to worry about if Hindus are united. With boundaries breaking down in the face of poverty, people will and have settled down in Maharashtra, some for generations, they can't be called non-Marathi or outsiders now.

I am talking about class not caste . Middle classes like doctors engineers MBAs CAs office job goers etc are with BJP. Lower classes like fishermen ( kolis ) taxi drivers rickshaw drivers Labourers etc are with senas

need of the hour is for everyone to ditch the senas who are clearly making so many adjustments for the sake of political advantage. What is the point in supporting them if they are so fickle and can't even work with their brother? obviously personal gains are more important for these people.

Re: Raj Thackeray targets Modi and his Gujarati community

Maybe BJP will now overtly take up the cause of Gujaratis in Mumbai. I guess they already have the vote of that group

Re: Raj Thackeray targets Modi and his Gujarati community

Don’t understand what thackreys are cribbing about. Bal himself always said India needs a dictator and had very little respect for democracy.
Inki sulgi hai bcoz their money supply has dried up just like all other opposition.

Re: Raj Thackeray targets Modi and his Gujarati community

Raj Thackrey is a Bol Bacchan... First he was against UP bhaiyyas.. now against Gujaratis... Its a political stunt to remain in the news and still be relevant in 2019 elections.

In 80s, nmost of the middle class walas who were Marathi Manus supported Sena. Lower classes used to support Congress. I still remember seeing slum kids dancing to Tridev songs celebrating the victory of VN Gadgil in Pune. This was against the backdrop of Pappu ke papa losing elections nationally

Re: Raj Thackeray targets Modi and his Gujarati community

Shiv Sena paid a heavy price in the Assembly elections.. They had conducted this stunt of selling meat right opposite some Jain temples (Derasar) to protest the governments ban on selling meat during the Jain festival of 'paryushan'.

The gujju and jain community did not forget it. These communities in my area, had openly voiced that they would teach Shiv Sena a lesson at the polling booth.

And so it happened... where Shiv Sena used to win easily, in gujju areas, they lost and came third or fourth.

Anyway, Raj Thackrey was never popular amongst gujjus and he will further alienate this vote bank in coming elections.

Some of his points have been good but he just speaks.. no follow through ...

Gujjus were already voting for BJP. Shiv sena selling meat did not make any difference. Gujjus used to vote for sena only because it was in alliance with BJP. And sena candidate was only one of the alliance in their constituency. Now that sena and BJP are standing for elections seperately the gujjus were never going to vote for sena, meat or no meat .

It is marathi vote that has tilted towards BJP . Today all middle class marathi people are in favour of BJP . Prime example is you yourself But there are many others whom I know---all marathi people who have ditched sena for BJP .
