OFF THE RECORD review on some of todays headlines 

1. Broke State Congress plans to ask MLAs to donate a months salary 

Oh Common! Why this situation on State Congress? Where are the commitments of life long Congressi politicians like Patangrao Kadam, Balasaheb Thorat, Vikhe Patil, Ashok Chavhan, Bhai Jagtap & STILL in Congress Narayan Rane? These people are not only rich but anyone of them can take care of Congress for the next 20 years even without blinking an eyelid. Why the eyewash then?  Why people like Anant Gadgil, Sanjay Dutt or Ranpise should bear the brunt? See the people whom I have mentioned here in the rich category, all have political heirs who would be ENTERTAINED only in Congress. So not for yourselves, but at least for your son’s please let go your 10% of wealth accumulated, leaders! By the way an interesting theory came upto me. Those who thought Ashok Chavan has made a fortune of some thousand crores, please understand the nitigrities. From what I have heard, had it not been his best friend ‘Shah’ in the anti-chamber whilst his tenure as CM, Chavan would have been left with only few crores instead of some 100’s today. Whatever Ashok Chavan did & collected  as CM was directly directed to Delhi. That is why Ashok Chavan never left his friend even when he was targeted by the media in those days. By the way friends, Latur will & can be gone to the Nilengekar’s owing to some poor show by Amit Deshmukh in every aspect. 

2. 791 buildings in Mumbai are unsafe: BMC survey 

I’m sure notices are served to these unsafe buildings. But is it of any use? One natural calamity say an earthquake with a magnitude of a richer scale than usual will kill everyone living in these buildings for sure. Most of these buildings would be located in Muslim-dominated areas such as Kurla, Govandi, Nagpada & so on. The formula is simple. In a one floor building or a row-house, raise floors illegally (built the same in some 6 months) and fill in as much as “jaatbhai” as possible. BMC and the Government once declaring the names & areas of the buildings should DISOWN these buildings. The residents IF & IF are residents of Maharashtra since last 25 years, should be rehabilitated elsewhere. Rest should be sent back to their native state or COUNTRY. BMC & the Government should openly notify them and stop the basic necessities such as water supply & electricity. Only then these people will learn. This will be less of a burden to carry off then to see some thousands of people who will die if “the D-Day” arrives. 

3. Maha CIC thrashed over demolition of Ambedkar Bhavan 

Not done! Two of the IAS officers getting caught in the last week for accepting bribe by the ACB is a trend setter, but beating them is a strict NO-NO. We are not in Pakistan or Uttar Pradesh or Bihar where anyone stands up & takes up violence to fight against Government. If the Ambedkarism thought processors think alone CIC Ratnakar Gaikwad is the brain behind the demolition of the Ambedkar Bhavan, they are wrong! They should first understand the politics behind it and the ‘leaders’ & other ‘bureaucrats’ who have initiated the idea. Hint-Those who gave statements pro Ratnakar Gaikwad are the ones who have his back covered. 

4. Diwakar Raote: Move to denotify highways wrong 

Who says I’m against Shiv-Sena. See didn’t I tell you there are still some tigers left in the Sena? Raote is surely one of them. This is what Shivsena is and this is what they should do!! Oppose every move of the BJP that harms the public on a large. The move to de-notify highways just to rack in revenue from sale of alcohol was not a welcome move. Raote had the guts to at least oppose to the policy. (I’m a Devils Advocate) –But Roate Saheb, in a cosmopolitan city like that of Mumbai which is on the world map as one of the best, can curbing anything be good to its image. Point to Ponder on !
