On Sunday, Raj Thackeray delivered a lecture on “Future of Maharashtra” during a Vyakhyanmala in Nigdi near Pune. 3M accidentally came across live transmission of the event on Star Majha… Surprise Surprise… Thackeray Jr was singing a different tune… from “UP-Bihari Hatao” he has moved to “Development”. The speech was replete with examples of development from around the world. He realizes that rhetoric (and violence) can open political doors but development can ensure sustained support from voters… Lessons learnt from M/s Modi, Dixit & Pattnaik!
The fact that he is warming up to BJP was clear from his statements like “Modi for PM” and “Gadkari for CM”… as political equations are set to change, he seems to be preparing ground!
