Is-there-any-possibility-of-Devendra-Fadanvis-becoming-the-Chief-Minister-of-Maharashtra-in-2020


An interesting state of affairs in Maharashtra.

Shiv Sena’s Uddhav Thackeray has proved a point.

BJP is a party with a dominant national prescence today, and with Modi and Shah at the helm appear to be riding a wave. Shiv Sena nurtured by Bal Thakrey has always claimed to be numero uno in Maharashtra. It has been claiming to be in the forefront for protecting Hindu Interests since decades.

Shivsena, as a regional party has always been loud, vociferous, and presenting a larger than life figure to the public. Self generated sense of importance fuelled by electoral victories in Maharashtra inflated the egos of the top echelons of the party.

The last few years have seen BJP which was no where in the race in Maharashtra, suddenly moving up and even managing to overtake Shiv Sena in its citadel. Worse, BJP managed to install a government with its own chief minister. Post 2019 elections to parliament when BJP won a clear majority, It started to treat its allies less as equals in its partnership agreements.

Shivsena under Uddhav thakrey was not comfortable any more. Added to this was the General feeling that Uddhav Thackeray was not really of the same caliber as his father, Bal Thakrey, who was acknowledged as a no nonsense man. Uddhav Thakrey had to prove himself to the people of Maharashtra and all other national parties, to claim rightful heritage to adorning Bal Thakrey mantle.

He did this by making his son stand for election and won 56 seats in the legislative assembly elections in 2019 in Maharashtra. BJP won 105 seats. Combined the BJP-Shiv Sena had a clear majority in the assembly.

Possibly prior state elections there was an understanding of a Shivsena member becoming the chief minister of Maharashtra. At least that probably was the idea that was carried by Uddhav Thakrey when he went in partnership with BJP in the elections.

When post elections BJP wished to reinstate Fadnavis, the earlier incumbent once again, Uddhav was disappointed. ShivSena felt that they were not being accorded due importance in the partnership by BJP.

Added to this was the fear that unless ShivSena asserted itself, it would soon lose its relevance in Maharashtra in a short time.

Uddhav Thackeray had to move fast to pull out from this predicament.

He cast around and found the old fox Sharad Pawar, an old friend and ally in earlier times. Pawar managed the show behind the scenes. Sharad Pawar, the consummate power broker, drove hard bargains. How Pawar ensured that BJP Shiv Sena alliance was broken up. Managed to install Uddh Thackeray as chief minister of Maharashtra.

The question now is what is the status of Shivsena in the government today. What will be its future in Maharashtra?

NCP- Congress dominates the Maharashtra government. ShivSena has allied with parties that are ideologically opposed to Sena priorities. Dilemma of ShivSena in the present situation has been exposed through many instances, from walking out in Rajya Sabha during Voting for CAA, or inability to stand up for Hindus and its icons including Savarkar.

In analysis Uddhav Thackeray has proved to BJP that he has to be taken seriously. Alliance with ShivSena cannot be taken for granted. ShivSena May have comparatively lesser seats than BJP but it is still relevant when it comes to real politik.

On the ground, can ShivSena manage to overcome the public aversion to its horse trading antics with Pawar before next elections? Or it will be punished severely for its complete desertion of ideologies, and worse, seen to be actively partnering with and promoting anti Hindu parties?

With the passage of time Handling veteran Pawar and Congress will only be getting more and more difficult for Uddhav Thakrey

It is a fact that Uddhav Thackeray has proved his point. If wise BJP should be aware it and plan and accordingly in future.*

One way forward for Uddhav Thakrey that will ensure his continued authority in Maharashtra and relevance of Shivsena in the future.

He can complete say a year or so as chief minister. BJP should gracefully let bygones be bygones and extend olive branch to Uddhav Thakrey. (advocated wisely by Subramaniam Swamy much earlier).

A wiser Uddhav can do with some hard bargaining with BJP. He can then step down by NOv Dec 2020, allow a BJP CM before next elections and make his son Dy CM. His party would have been in power for five years, old sins washed off to a great extent.

Another alternative for Uddhav Thackeray is to hand over to NCP and become irrelevant for a decade or more.

Third is for Uddhav Thackeray is to be dethroned in a palace coup sooner or later and lose relevance along with Shivsena.

  • BJP has learned not to be over confident. It is willing to accept NitishKumar as the next Chief Minister in Bihar in the coming elections.

In SUPPORT of CAA & NRC

Abhijeet Satogiya, Aficionado of Indian Politics

The biggest shocker and an incredible example would be the support of JNU for CAA. I’ve mentioned why India actually needs NRC and CAA – read till the end. The politicians won’t talk about it cause it may be bad for them to speak about it, but the truth is hidden from almost everyone on why Leftists and Muslims are against the CAA and NRC

BJP received over 52 lakh calls in support of CAA

We already are supporting CAA and NRC ! Yesterday, I was in Indore giving my State PSC Prelims.

I witnessed more than 10,000 people rallying and supporting the NRC and CAA. It’s actually very less percentage of the people, who are against it. The politicians who want a vote bank from Indian Muslims.

After removing Triple Talaq, Article 370 – the present government was admired by everyone irrespective of their religion, caste or creed.

The Congress meanwhile saw their ship sinking and had to do something about it.

What they decide is to stand against everything done by the present government. They were against removing Article 370, the Jammu and Kashmir being a Union Territory, and soon they’ll be against Uniform Civil Code.

What they’re trying to do, is to divert the attention of everyone from what the government has done, to something that isn’t even a matter.

Every Indian other than the 0.5% communists, leftists, people against Hinduism and the opposition are against the CAA as they want India to become the next Lebanon. Lebanon was a great nation before radical Islam arrived there.

Reason 2 for support :

I support NRC, UCC & CAA, to prevent India from being the next victim of Radical Islam.

Brigitte Gabriel’s words explain – how radicalism is dangerous for humanity.

I come from Lebanon, I was born and raised in 5Lebanon which used to be the only majority Christian country in the Middle East.

We were open-minded, we were fair, we were tolerant, we were multicultural, we pride ourselves in our multiculturalism, we had open border policy, we welcomed everyone to come to our country because we wanted to share with them the westernization which we had created in the heart of the Arabic world.

Muslims used to send their children to study in our universities because we had built the best universities in the Arabic world they graduated and works in our economy because we had built the best economy in the Middle East.

Even though we did not have any oil, Beirut became Paris of the Middle East, the banking capital of the Middle East. In 1965, National Geographic Magazine had on its front cover : Lebanon – Eden of the Middle East and fortunately all this began to change as the years went by.

We got our independence in the early 40s but by the 60s and 70s the Christians had become the minority and the Muslims had become the majority in Lebanon and as the Islamic population grew in the country, the country became less and less tolerantbecause they started pushing for more rights that were not compatible without/with our judeo-christian value system that we had created and that’s when the problems started.

The problem was contained until the influx of the Palestinians out of Jordan in 1970 when Lebanon brought them in because we already had refugee camps, actually at that time Lebanon was the only country in the Middle East to accept a third wave of Palestinians into Lebanon; the majority of them were Muslims. They put their heads together with the muslims in lebanon and declared jihad on the Christians.

What they wanted to do is create a base from which to fight Israel kill the Jews and throw them into the sea something they tried to do in Jordan. Yes, Arafat and the Palestinians tried to do in Jordan, but they failed because of the dictatorship of the King, yet they were able to come to Lebanon use our open-mindedness, our fairness our tolerance, our multiculturalism and our democracy, to topple our democracy my 9/11 happened to be in 1975 when that when radical Muslims blew up my home, bringing it down burying me under the rubble wounded as they shouted Allahu Akbar. My only crime was that I was a Christian living in a Christian town. I ended up in a hospital for two and a half months and as I laid in a hospital bed, hooked up to IVs in both arms, I would ask my parents, why did they do this to us ? why did they attack us ? and my father would tell me –because we are Christians the Muslims consider us infidels and they want to kill us”, so I knew since I was a 30 year old child that I am wanted dead simply because I was born into the Christian faith and lived in a Christian town.

There’s a whole story behind why Muslims were excluded from CAA. It’s just that the politicians can’t show their political bias towards any religion and lose their vote bank.

The fact of the matter is that in India – “Long live Mother India” is considered communal, while “La ilah illa Allah = no god, except Allah.” is not communal.

Proof :

While Indian leftist want India to be democratic like America and other countries, they’ve forgotten the DACA and DAPA – under which USA removed every single illegal immigrant from their country. The NRI’s in India are urged to support JNU and go against CAA, but meanwhile –

Is USA primarily responsible for the rise of ISIS?


NO. USA is NOT the main cause of ISIS terrorism. These are blatant lies floated by apologists for hiding the evil persons connected with ISIS and whitewashing the narrative parts of theology of hatred cemented in them.

Actions of ISIS leaders and fighters clearly indicates their mindset, which is a throwback on medieval beliefs. They have ruthlessly masaccered innocents, raped and enslaved women by hundreds in lands occupied by them. *
They claim to follow rules, strictures and emulate the actions of their forebears, as per their holy book the Quran.

the caliphate has continued to embrace slavery and crucifixion without apology. We will conquer your Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women,” Adnani, the spokesman, promised in one of his periodic valentines to the West. “If we do not reach that time, then our children and grandchildren will reach it, and they will sell your sons as slaves at the slave market.”

*What ISIS Really Wants

 

Quite a few Muslims call their actions UN Islamic. However the support that Isis ideology has received from Muslims (even silent support from some Middle East regimes) around The world indicates that this philosophy is not entirely disliked or abhorrent.

 

How could the idea of ISIS then make such a come back after centuries?

 

Ground conditions in the Middle East helped the seeds of ISIS philosophy to sprout. Isis is basically a Sunni Muslim set up. Saudi Arabia had no issues with ISIS since it was occupying Lands in Syria which was being ruled by the Baathist party led by Non-Sunni Muslims, that is Alhawites.

 

Government of Turkey give the ISIS a free hand to travel across its territories and the border since according to them ISIS was targeting Syria and The Kurds.

 

The immature actions by the US a accentuated the problems in the Middle East. Having disposed off Saddam Hussein Saddam, US took a major incorrect decision, a blunder in fact, to disband the Iraqi army overnight. This rendered thousands of active service personal rootless, but in possession of arms, ammunition and even heavy weapons and vehicles.

 

Most of most of the iraqi army personnel set adrift were Sunni Muslims who had very little love lost for the Shia dominated government that was in place after Saddam Hussain was displaced.

 

ISIS was able to attract many of these army veterans. Promise of good pay and loot, along with status, and relegious beliefs that coincided with ISIS philosophy enlarged ISIS strength in numbers and weapons.

Initially it was a cake walk for ISIS fighters. Within one year they had occupied vast swathes of territory including oil fields in working conditions.

 

The real danger that ISIS portended to international peace was realised late. Luckily some sense dawned on USA which could come to some understanding with USSR and helped in the defeat of ISIS.

 

However it should be clearly understood that, the philosophy Of ISIS is acceptable to vast majority of Muslims around the world, and it is the sword of

Bihari Muslims in Bangladesh-1971


 

Bihar is a state adjacent to Bengal. Bengal was much more prosperous thanks to its being seat of government and Jute Industries than Bihar.

Pre partition, many Biharis moved to Calcutta and Dacca in search of employment.

Post partitions more than half a million Bihari Muslims migrated to the then ‘‘East Pakistan’. They spoke Hindi and Urdu. Initially they were happy when Mohammad Al Jinnah, a WOG lawyer from Bombay became the Governor General of Pakistan (later president), declared Urdu as the sole official and national language of Pakistan. Urdu was the preferred language of Muslims from UP and Bihar. However this move to impose Urdu was not welcome to the people of Bengal who obviously loved their own mother tongue.

 

Sudden influx of refugees upset the balance in East Pakistan.Resultant pressures on employment opportunities, cultural issues were added to the differences between native Bengalis and migrant Biharis.

Biharis in East Pakistan considered themselves superior to locals, native Bengalis, comparing themselves to the original first generation Muslims of Hijra era. Fluency in Urdu, and insistence on speaking Hindi among themselves widened the gap between Bengalis and Biharis.

Inevitably mutual animosities commenced simmering, between both nationalities.

Things took a turn for the worse when Bengalis in East Pakistan realised the second grade treatment given to them by Punjabis in West Pakistan. Economically and politically Bengalis demanded equal status to Western Pakistan. The language issues, birth and ascent of Awami League, arrest of Banga Bandhu are all matters of recorded history.

Terror was unleashed against Bengalis both Hindus and Muslims, on 26 March 2071 by Pakistani army. Thousands of Bengalis, both Muslims and Hindus were massacred and countless women raped.

During thse most critical moments in the history of Bengal, Urdu Hindi speaking Bihari Muslims sided with the Pakistani army, in creating havoc against native Bengalis. They aided the Pakistani army in identifying educated Hindus and Bengalis who were rounded up and summarily executed by Pakistani army, all over East Pakistan. Bihari Muslims guided Pakistani army to Mukhti Bahini hideouts.

Bihari Muslims were confident that Pakistani army will subjugate native Bengalis. They considered themselves Pakistanis first and last, and clean forgot the fact that Bengal was their chosen place of residence. They assumed they had no loyalty to the native people of Bengal who had given them shelter post partition. They did not pay heed to the sentiments of Bengalis, their love of their mother tongue and their desperate desire to free themselves of Oppression.

Post 1971, liberation of Bangladesh, Bihari Muslims (500,000) fully expected that Pakistani army will arrange for their move to West Pakistan. The rich thought flights will be arranged for them. The poor thought they will be transported by sea.

However West Pakistan, dominated by its Punjabi army and Mohajirs from UP had no special sympathy for Bihari Muslims. They were left to fend for themselves in Independent Bangla Desh. Many, more than a 100,000 still live in squalid camps.

Only A few could manage to move out with the help of Red Cross over years.

However keeping with their broad mindedness and charitable disposition, keeping with Supreme Court decisions, Bangladesh has allowed all children of Bihari Muslims, (even those opting to go to West Pakistan) born post 1971 to be naturalised citizens of Bangladesh.
