MNS fields a ‘Bhaiyya’ candidate - Shalini Thackeray

Talking of women candidates... here is an interesting case study!

When Raj Thackeray declared that Shalini Thackeray, his cousin’s wife, would contest from Mumbai North-West, it raised quite a few eyebrows… for she was the first from this ‘remote control dynasty’ to contest elections. But you can hardly call that the controversial part of her candidature… A birdie told 3M that Shalini is born to a Punjabi father and ‘Uttar Bharatiya’ mother and migrated to Mumbai in her teens!

So Rajsaheb… is it change of heart? Or the Thackeray surname washes away the ‘Bhaiyya’ tag of your candidate?

I think this Shalini is going to be the Sarah Palin of Raj Thackeray.
Though I support MNS, I really hope and pray that no marathi manoos votes for Shalini Bhaiyya whatever.
Another Bhaiyya in MNS is Vaghesh Saraswat who too is against marathis but controlling Raj through some levers.
