Raj Thackeray is Jinnah of Maharashtra: Saamna

MUMBAI : In a scathing editorial, Shiv Sena's organ Saamna accused MNS chief Raj Thackeray of dividing Marathi votes to help Congress win maharashtra assemblt assembly elections 2009. Saamna described the MNS chief as Mohammad Ali Jinnah of Maharashtra.

"Jinnah and Muslin League divided India and got Pakistan in the name of religion. Partition led to wide spread violence and killing, and permanently wounded the Hindu psyche. Jinnah was propped up by the British. Congress party has now propped up a new Jinnah whose divide and rule game will help Congress win the elections. This new Jinnah is some one who is our own," Saamna said, without naming MNS Chief Raj Thackeray.

Pointing out that partition did not bring peace and prosperity to Pakistan and left Jinnah unhappy, Saamna warned Raj that his politics of dividing Marathi votes will not bring him any peace. "The Marathi manoos stands strongly united under Shiv Sena's flag and this solidarity cannot be ruptured," Saamna asserted.

The Sena morninger came down heavily on Congress for ignoring Marathis. "The Mumbai Congress is run by non-Marathis, such as Murli Deora, Gurudas Kamat and Kripa Shankar Singh. Congress can't find a Marathi leader to head the party in Mumbai. This shows what Congress thinks about Marathis," Saamna stated.

Refuting Saamna's allegation, MNS spokesperson Shirish Parkar told reporters that Balasaheb Thackeray has nothing to do with the editorial. "Saamna is run by Uddhav Thackeray and his caucus," he added.
