Raj Thackeray, a new name in the Indian Politics, is trying to show his bloody power by the meanest things ever in Indian Politics. Besides being called to be a peaceful country, Raj Thackeray, founder of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS), is trying to put definition of peace in different manner.
The place where great personalities like Mahatma Gandhi, Jawahar Lal Nehru, Mother Teresa, Lal Bahadur Shastri, Rabindra Nath Tagore, Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi and other great politicians took birth in this lovely country. Unfortunately Raj also took birth in this country.
Yesterday, on the day of Railway examination, October 20, 2008, a lot of candidates who had prepared so long to get through this exam, came to Mumbai for the examination. But these candidates don’t even know that terror is awaiting them.
Yes thats right, at approximately 4 o’clock, in the morning at the Thane railway station, when most of the candidates were either sleeping or waiting for the examination scheduled time, MNS workers came and started beating those candidates horribley. They were carrying iron-rods, belts, stones, bricks which they’ve used against those candidates. That was just because those candidates were North Indians specially from Uttar Pradesh(UP) and Bihar. The candidates somehow manage to run away from the railway station. They were told as if they are going to appear in the examination, they will be killed right in the examination.
By this fear, out of 800 only 25-30 candidates managed to come in the examination center. During examination Shivsena members came and started beating them out of the examination hall. Somehow these candidates managed to run away from the hall. The police there at the examination center were just looking at the activities by Shiv Sena members.
Perhaps these groups were trying to increase their vote bank in Maharashtra, by beating up North Indians. Well I don’t think this to be a better option, to increase the voters. “Can’t beat them in exams, so beat them up: MNS”. This is really a shameful fact. By this strategy there will surely hazard to National Integrity, which indeed is not good for India.
I think MNS and other same type of groups/parties should be banned with the immediate effect. And the owners and founders of such groups should be caught and kept in jail. As law is same for all.
In response to this incident, Indian Railway Minister Mr. Laloo Prasad Yadav said “I strongly condemn the incident. There should be an inquiry into the attack. There should be strong action against that party…MNS should be banned“.
Or there may be an another option as well, they should try to make effort to crack the exam. They should try to get in the top-list of the exam, whether it may be Indian Civil Services(IAS, IPS, IFS, etc). I think, Maharashra candidates better try in the Exams of other states. If those candidates are coming to Maharashtra, then these candidates should work hard and go to other states !
Show a healthy competition !
