Here is song penned and rapped by @alist, Ashwini Mishra, must listen
Just hours after his sensational statement over “infiltrators” and “Biharis“, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chiefRaj Thackeray faced stern criticism from many. Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh‘sstatement on him might be the toughest one and hard to digest for Thackeray.
Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh on Saturday, Sep 1 claimed that Thackeray family itself belonged to Bihar and had settled in Dhar in Western Madhya Pradesh from where they migrated to Mumbai. Hence, is it true that Thackeray himself is an “infiltrator” in Mumbai, Maharashtra?
Criticising Mr Thackeray and discussing about hisfamily backgrounds, Digvijay Singh said, “If you look at the history of Mumbai, then it is a city offishermen. Rest all have settled there from outside.”
Digvijay Singh‘s shocking statement came when the MNS supremo showed his rage against the Biharis, the people who have migrated from Bihar to Mumbai.
Thackeray, whose party has often launched violent campaigns against Hindi-speaking people in Maharashtra, was reacting to a media report that Bihar chief secretary Navin Kumar has written to Mumbai police commissioner voicing displeasure over the arrest of the youth for vandalising the martyr’s memorial during Azad Maidan protest on Aug 11.
Thackeray said that the Bihar chief secretary had threatened legal action against Mumbai police.
“The letter says Mumbai police has to get in touch with the Bihar government before picking up any person from their state. If Mumbai crime branch picks up people from their state without the knowledge of the Bihar police they would face legal action,” he said referring to the purported latter.
“If the Bihar government tries to become a hurdle in the way of a police investigation, then my party would dub every Bihari in Maharashtra as an infiltrator and would force them to leave the state,” an angry Thackeray said.

Whether it is Bal, Raj or Uddav, all Thackerays follow same politics of hate. After a gap, they have yet again turned their venomous tongues against North Indians residing in Mumbai and Maharashtra. They are even talking about issuing “permits” for North Indians to enter and live in Maharashtra. It shows nothing but hatred, ignorance in Indian constitution and selfish political views of theThackerays.
In 70s and 80s the senior Thackeray instigated hate politics against South Indian’s in Maharashtra; particularly in Mumbai. Unfortunately this incorrect concept of “sons of the soil” had some effect on some of the innocent Maharashtrians. Based on this concept, Shiv Sena could make some political gains too during those times.
This concept has now turned against the Thackerays themselves! Congress leader Digvijay Singh has unearthed a book written by none other than Bal Thackeray’s father Prabhodhankar Thackeray – in which it is written that the forefathers of Thackerays have moved from Bihar (!), via Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and ultimately settled in Pune! If this is true, the first “resident permit” should be awarded to the Thackerays!
One can fool some of the people all time, and all of the people some time; but no one can fool everyone all the time. It seems the Thackerays have not heard this saying. In current times of advanced political knowledge and improved educational standards, the Shiv Sena and Thackerays could not fool the Maharashtrains with Sons of the Soil mantra. If the whole world adopts the “sons of the soil” concept, what will happen to lakhs and lakhs of Maharashtrians who work in different parts of the world? Are they supposed to leave their jobs, houses and universities and head back to Maharashtra?
Few humble words to the Thackerays: http://wp.me/p1FXBz-ef
