OFF THE RECORD review on some of the headlines…
- Javed Akhtar and BJYM
Javed Akhtar compared RSS to Taliban. When Central Minister Narayan Rane slap slur occurred, Shivsainik’s had created a stir one whole day in the entire Maharashtra. And here the BJP who runs on RSS guidelines and discipline, any person comes and maligns it, forget the BJP veterans, even the young turks who are very lively on social media, leave the matter unattended. And then when ‘imports’ like Rane’s take action or get importance, everyone is ready to talk behind their back. How typical? See the vision of the top brass of the Maharashtra BJP. When they released this, they had to depend on the likes of Rane, Darekar, Chitra Wagh and Lad rather than original BJPians, as even they thought a little bit of aggression and coming off the image is the need of the hour. And now the old turf is upset because these people are everywhere and getting everything. By the way, BJYM, did you even hold a candle march protest against Akhtar? RSS is your ideology too nah? As I don’t see the anger on Akhtar even on social media from you guys. It was Nitesh Rane, an import again, who had issued a stern warning to Akhtar to come clean within a week. Such silence will tend to grow animosity within BJYM or even BJP in coming times. Didn’t you all read the letter of Dinesh Kanji about Corporator Sunil Yadav? There are many such Patel’s in BJP who will down the original BJPians like Yadav and force him to go into oblivion. Be one, is the need of the hour or this MVA government is too strong and will make inroads in the BJP. Mark my words!
And by the way Javed Akhtar ji, rather than concentrating on RSS, how about removing time and sending your closest relatives to drug rehab centres? Heard one of them who was a known MAN-EATER once, has turned lesbian now. Gosh, what will Communist say? And yes, please tell your son Farhan, stop having relationships with Brahmin girls now…First it was actress Sharddha Kapoor (d/o of Padmini Kolhapure) and now Shibani Dandekar. RSS might have planted these girls to know if Farhan can sing without autotune for continuous 2 minutes or no? Shhh…no one knows that secret!
- O Mukadam ji, ye kaise kar leto ho…?
Heard from a close source that Hussain Mukadam OSD to Minister Aslam Sheikh, Minister for Ports, Textiles and Fisheries, has been using car no 3993 which belongs to the Home Department. Yes, even when he was working for then Minister Fauzia Khan. How come you get this car Hussain ji? First of all is this true at all, Mukadam ji? If yes, then, your current Minister, Aslam Sheikh’s portfolios are nowhere close to that of Home. Is it because no one dares stop the car to check right? Aisa, Kya Hota hai aapke car main? And how are your sons? Heard they both are major fans of Zakir Naik…GAD, please take a note of this car allocation….I feel it is the same case where the Minister is kept in the dark and staff make merry without the Minister’s knowledge. Now if any bag is found in Mukadam’s house at Byculla, unnecessarily Aslam Sheikh will be in trouble.
- Find this out…
I had written in June 2021 under the title, “Bajrang Kharmate or Bajrang Bali Ke Jitna ‘Khaate’” a blog which was widely read. Had exposed the nexus of Kharmate and advised Minister Anil Parab to refrain from him. But as usual, who listens. Today I read in papers that Kharmate has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). Now one more hint to the ED….If the officials find out who are AntiChamber friends of Parab, a lot will be discovered. How a Journalist from Lokmat is a shadow of Kharmate or how an Arvind is a link between CMO & Parab everything can be seen with eyes wide open. Had Parab got cautioned in June only and sidelined Kharmate, a lot could have been saved. Now they say even CM will be in trouble due to this as Parab is known to be extremely close to Matoshri.
- Home Minister Dilip-Walse Patil’s silence is surprising.
Karuna Dhananjay Munde reaches Parli and cops don’t allow her to take a press conference, they stop her and when they search her vehicle, they find a pistol in the car and then they detain her. I mean, are we in Kindergarten or what MVA Government? Or was it just as simple as planting gelatine sticks outside Antilia? A video is out on social media showing someone placing something in the car when a mob attacks Karuna’s car. Anyways, don’t want to fall into the Munde’s and their outside relations, but silence of the Home Minister is worrying, especially when the image of Maharashtra and Mumbai Police have taken a drastic beating after the Param Bir, Anil Deshmukh, Mansukh Hiran and Rane issue. Silence is not golden all the time sir especially when you are known for your honest judgements time and again.
