OFF THE RECORD review on some of todays headlines….
1. Women back in in Haji Ali sanctum
Believe me when I say this, but it is the biggest victory for women to enter any shrine be it a mosque or a mandir. But comparatively, people in Metro’s are a bit broad minded & don’t react fearing the law and consequences. Do you think somewhere in Rajasthan or somewhere in Kerela you think this decision of the court will be taken lightly and women will be freely admitted to come inside the shrine dominated by the men? NO!! People deep inside the country are so blind-folded with traditions that no one dares to go against. The girl who will dare so, not only her but her immediate family, her relatives will be boycotted or raped or killed by religious fanatics. If any “activist” women tried to break the rules, she will have a very heinous end. Those who propagandising this move, better start your tours in the fanatic country, called India.
2.16 tainted road contractors bad Rs. 1500cr works
What should we say to this? Why and how does the BMC or MMRDA or the PWD get the same tainted contractors to do the same work which will be again of shoddy quality and play with life of Mumbaikar’s? But let me tell you, with this Rs. 959 crore road scam, let the contract be awarded to anyone, the watch dogs, the various agencies and various check-points will make it very difficult to promote corruption. For the first time, along with the CM, BMC chief is also adamant on quality work and making people take the onus.
3. Sanjay Dina Patil and Nawab Malik clash
Both are alleging fights. They say when the ship is about to sink, the rats abandon the first. Same case with NCP. All the leaders are just waiting for Senior Pawar to retire from active politics. The day the captain of the ship will give up on politics, just see how everyone jumps the queue and joins other parties. What to say about Sanjay Dina Patil? Just for a small family gathering Dina pAti family books a table for 200 people. All are very secured in their political life and continue their ” rule ” in the Chembur area of Mumbai, even today. Nawab Malik is very small for him. Just for the police agencies, please check the arms licenses if it was there. By the way, apart from few reporters, Nawab Malik is not a liked person by 90% of the NCP its because of his attitude.
4. CM’s wife in a music video with Amitabh Bachchan
Saw the picture in a red dress of our CM’s wife Amruta shaking a leg with legend Amitabh Bachchan for a music video. Gossip mongers will attack the CM for his “bold” freedom that has been given by the CM, but lets not worry. Tell me one CM whose wife is not active in politics even after her husband has been dethroned from the post. Remember Prithviraj Chavhan’s wife went to Yeola and bought saree’s worth Rs, crore for a wedding scheduled in the family. But again she did a lot of social work. Ashok Chavhan’s wife (now MLA) was no different. Both Chavhan’s wives use to take active part in politics and “businesses” of husbands. At least Amruta Fadnavis is still working as a normal human being, staying away from politics and pursuing her hobby that of singing. Now, is it a very big thing to use Devendra’s good office for roping Amitabh? Common, this much is permissible.
5. Man tries to extort Radhyesham Mopalwar using Arun Gawali’s name, arrested
No, totally wrong story. If someone has gone to extort money from veteran bureaucrat Mopalwar, it is nothing to do with any earlier incidents happening in Mopalwar’s life. It is an old vendetta! How come people just get up one day, pose as Gawli’s men and straight head to the MSRDC office. Don’t they know the number game, S S Zende, Prabhakar Deshmukh and many more are way way ahead of Mopalwar. Watch this space for more info.
6. सरकारी अधिकारी आता १० वर्षच प्रतिनियुक्ती
Oh wow!! That means we will have all the VET’s occupying the chair in Vidhan Bhavan returning back to the department, as forget 10 since 20 years they are in the same department. I have a list of state cadre officers who have not gone to their parent department since the beginning. Lets start with Subhash Deshmukh’s OSD Krishna Jadhav or Hardas who was with Eknath khadse. GAD, be prepared for a lot of RTI’s and officers, please be ready for some blackmailing (of course not by me) but the Times & lokmat.
