Thackeray says “I’m Marathi first”

The three part interview of Balasaheb Thackeray in Samna, Shiv Sena’s mouthpiece, was quite a damp squib… no new issues were discussed. From terrorism to political opponents and from Sena defectors to Hindutva, he repeated his same old viewpoint peppered with choicest cuss word.

3M was amused to see that Thackeray agreed that he is “Marathi First” and had to take up the Hindutva issue for the “larger benefit of India”... political compulsions!

The main aim of this interview was to emphasise that he was in good health and that Shiv Sena was in the “safe hands” of Uddhav. He ended the interview with a impassioned plea to the Marathi Janta to bring Shiv Sena back in power. The campaign for the assembly elections next year has started in right earnest.
