CREATOR OF INSECURITY DEMANDS SECURITY
The situation is getting even more unjustified with the followers of Mr Raj Thackeray demanding state-security for their leader. It’s like he has to be provided highest security to his life by the state Government so that he can move around happily and create insecurity to the lives of common man, whose only crime is in not being a native Maharashtrian. The bigger irony would be that the funding for such provision of security would partly come from the same Non-Maharashtrian common man by way of tax, whose life and property is endangered by Mr. Raj Thackeray.
Mr. Raj Thackeray should understand that there is no dearth of opportunities for both Maharashtrians and Non-Maharashtrian in both Mumbai and other parts of Maharashtra. There is also no specific reservation or preference for Non-Maharashtrians in either Government, public or private sector industry. So if at all Mr. Raj Thackeray feels that Mahashtrians are losing their opportunities, he has to create a fire within each Maharashtrian to develop and equip themselves to the requirement of the Industry and gain their rightful place on the basis of merit and I am sure they have the spirit in themselves to do it.
The decision of the Government of Mahasrashtra in this case would prove whether their intention is to promote a sense of being an “Indian first” in every citizen of the state or they want to further divide Indian citizens in terms of their linguistic origin.
