Even before MNS chief Raj Thackeray was produced in the Bandra court in Mumbai, over 2,000 slogan-raising supporters had gathered there, and the police resorted to a lathi-charge to bring the situation under control around Tuesday noon.
MNS supporters resorted to stone-pelting at police vehicles outside the Bandra court. The supporters also stoned a police van carrying detained MNS activists.
Violence erupted in several parts of Mumbai and Maharashtra following the arrest of MNS chief Raj Thackeray in the early hours of Tuesday from the Circuit House in Ratnagiri district, Maharashtra.
Angry activists of the MNS came out on the streets after the arrest of Raj Thackeray and attacked several taxis and auto rickshaws at Mumbai Central, Parel, Borivali and other parts of the city.
“Arrest me and be ready to bear the consequences…. You will have to regret,” Raj Thackeray, who was attending a ceremony at Bahadursheikh Naka in Chiplun in the state on Monday, said.
Arrest of people like Raj Thackeray is essentially required for sustenance of Indian Democracy. People like Raj Thackeray who is responsible for inciting violence and preaching the doctrine of divide and rule for their own selfish political motives should be thrown behind bar.
We all know that Raj is doing these stunts for political gain and big bucks for himself, being a Maharashtrian myself, I wish he should have done something to save our farmers from commiting suicide or to help in curbing terrorism in the state, the list of burning issues is endless.
It’s a matter of deep irony & Double Standards that Raj Thackeray’s son learns German and even the local website he made was in English before media caught attention, which prompted them to change the website over night. Raj is trying to portray himself as the next Sena Tiger. Mr. Thackeray, if you have courage then why aren’t you voicing against spiralling underworld crime that has so engulfed Mumbai.
Weather its Raj, Lalu or Amar Singh, they all are creating a poisonous environment in India. They all are giving venomous speeches just to be one-up against the other without the slightest regard for the democracy and its public.
We need a strong and a patriotic dictator to rule us somebody like Sardar Patel who integrated 500 states into one nation. People like Raj are a big threat to the country’s sovereignty & democracy. The law should be amended to award strictest punishment to people like Raj who are a threat to the peace and prosperity of our nation.
