Thackeray vs Thackeray

It was an unprecedented event in Mumbai on 13 February 2012, two Thackeray Maha rallies at the same time! It was the last night before the campaign period ends and both parties had pulled out all stops to dazzle Marathi Manoos in Mumbai and beyond. Even news channels had a harrowing time deciding which speech to telecast. While Star Majha gave a panoramic view from Worli, other channels were more inclined to show what Thackeray Sr had to say. For those who missed the action, you can watch these two videos courtesy Star Majha.

In his latest speech, Raj Thackeray fired the first salvo from Jamboree Maidan in Worli... While Balasaheb gave it back with equal gusto at BKC MMRDA Ground in presence of Gopinath Munde of BJP and Ramdas Athavale of RPI... not to forget Uddhav & Aditya Thackeray (Both looking extremely nervous). While nephew's speech emphasised on the issues related to BMC elections and welfare of the city, Uncle stuck to his below-the-belt double entendre style. Raj clearly proved that he has Version 2.0 of his uncle's "Thakari Shaili"... without the "Shivral Bhasha"!

Both spoke of 'walking the extra mile'... so is this laying of foundation for a post election tie-up?
