OFF THE RECORD review on some of todays headlines…
1. Uddhav Thackrey put down Rs. 11.6 cr for Matoshree-2.0
Todays Mumbai Mirror Page 1 story! This is what I don’t like about MP Kirit Somaiyya. For once, he had disturbed the Thackrey’s when he asked the later to declare all his assets publicly. The news created a stir for a while, and as usual it died its own natural death. No one followed with Somaiyya as to why he backed out with the same or why isn’t he still pursuing the same? Or is it that MP Somaiyya did what he does regularly. Create a controversy and leave it alone ….ANyway, forget Mr. Somaiyya, I want to know how does one create a property worth minimum 25 crores by just sitting at home? By the way, the value of the property is showed as Rs. 11.5 crore but as everyone knows there is always a cash component involved in the deal. On top of that Uddhav has hired “unaffordable” architects Talati & Panthaky. The will of Balasaheb is still been fought in the courts. Uddhavji, please keep the penguins on one of the floors of your newly designed pad–as it is, it is our money that has gone in the both the cases, but with that we can have the fortune of visiting your new residence.

3. “Its odd that underwood goons can fly but not an MP”–Shivsena MP’s in Loksabha
Yesterday, the MP’s of Shivsena moved Privilege Motion against Air-India and other airlines who have banned chappal MP Ravindra Gaikwad. The same was turned down by the Speaker. But this strategy of Sena playing down the incident and coming to the rescue of their MP is surely not a welcome move not only by their collation partner, but the public as well. Social Media had gone gungho over slamming the MP for his shameful act. When I wrote day before about how Sena should come out of their false EGO trip and apologise for the whole incident, one of the friend commented–ShivSena and Apology? Are you mad?? But as in the Hindi movie Rajneeti actor Manoj Bajpayee had said, मिलेगा, करारा जवाब मिलेगा”
