In Democracy, you go nowhere just by blaming voters - be it Maharashtra, Bihar or UP.... Infact, learn to respect public opinion and address it. If you think all those who vote for a person you dont like are innocent and illiterate, you are not yet ready for democracy. Your criticism should rather be directed towards those who sit at home and have a vacation on voting day and only come out with candles when badly hurt.
There is a reason why both national parties, Cong and BJP are being sidelined and people are going for local parties. Unless, we understand and change policies accordingly, we will only be cursing voters for decades to come. After Nehru's flawed centralized management, people started yearning for local issues. BJP rightly understands and implements and encourages decentralized administration.That is the right way to go! -- Unfortunately, many BJP supporters I've come across are not ready for it. Also, support and respect for local cultures and languages is also important -- which is again scantly seen in few areas. Next time, people ridicule a tamilian's hindi or the lungi (I'm not a tamilian btw), make sure, you counter them with the same amount of emotion. Next time, you hear someone calling north-east folks a chinki, do the same. Try to implement 3-language system in these states to learn to respect other languages. Haryana was supposed to learn Telugu under 3-lang. system, Tell me how many haryanvi's know telugu ?
The issue of Raj Thackeray's goondaism wouldn't have arisen if the migration from UP and Bihar wouldn't have been at such a large scale. There wouldnt have been support at grassroot levels had that migration not impacted the daily lives of local people. Ofcourse, goondaism must be stopped by strong police measures.
The way to destroy Raj Thackarey is to acquire the grassroot workers of MNS. Cursing and fighting against them is of no use - He would only gain in importance. This election will tell us if Shiv Sena's votes are being further eaten away by Raj or wht the future is going to be. Secondly, remember that, the demographics of Mumbai has changed significantly after heavy influx from UP and Bihar. BJP will not get those votes because of Shiv-Sena and at the same time, the strong marathi manoos votes are increasingly going to MNS. The best way to destroy MNS is to encourage defections from MNS by hook or crook.
