well ya i hav stolen the heading for this article from aaj tak but what can i do this is the best heading one can give to this article. Yesterday Mumbai saw the real mafiagiri on the road and public places. The goons were the member of Raj Thackre's political party MNS (maharashtra nirman sena).As per the name suggests they are supposed to do development in Maharashtra but whatever they did yesterday was really a shame to indian politics. It describes completely that how Indian politician can misuse their power.
Their was a time when politician like Mahatma Gandhi believed in peace and non-violence and now the politicians are going the other way round violence and hatred to do their work. India is the biggest democratic country so is the meaning of democracy is politicians can do anything they want. The mob actually burnt all the shops of North Indians,they attacked the taxi drivers,they boarded the trains and forced the north indians to say 'Jai maharashtra'. We have seen instances in history when muslims were thrown out of India and hindus were thrown out of Bangladesh but here west India that too only Maharashtra is standing against the North India. What they actually want to do by declaring the maharashtra great. I am an east indian and now staying in Maharashtra I myself feel from within of sayin Amchi Mumbai and Jai maharashtra but if someone force me then that feeling will die out of anger or opposition. Isn't MNS's duty is to develop Maharashtra so can't they just concentrate on their own work. I would rather say by doing this cheap deed they are just making Maharashtra look smaller. I am sure Shivaji wouldn't have ever asked for such actions. And the police they everytime say that they are there but seems like they are also helpless in front of this Mighty politicians. Why can't these politicians use their might for something fruitfull.
In such case why would even a person will like to go and vote when they know noone is better and noone can effect their lives in any way good or bad. I think Indian democracy is dieing out only because of the overgrowing power of these politicians.Why we Indian are becoming so helpless and the politicians hopeless?
