Conundrum in Maharashtra …

NCP backs BJP…
So has the BJP become secular?
Or has the NCP become communal.

Sena-Congress bhai bhai…
So has the Sena become secular?
Or has the Congress become communal.

Or are all four now communal?
Or are all four now secular?

Ye kaisi paheli hai?
P.S. While the liberals-intellectuals are going red in the face, the electorate has already shifted to development.

Maharashtra government hungama…

Shiv Sena supported Pratibha Patil.
She is Marathi, not Congressi.
Sena doesn’t support Suresh Prabhu.
He is BJP, not Marathi?

Who is ruling the State?
Principal Opposition?
—Shiv Sena.
How did all this happen?
And Congress?
—Who are they???

It’s called the Sena (army) and hence has to keep fighting someone.
With the Congress decimated in Maharashtra, the Shiv Sena will now take on the BJP.

Shiv Sena…
Say yes na!
Say na!
Say na!
BJP: seNa.

Narrowing gap…
News: 5 Congress MLAs suspended in Maharashtra.
Effect: Majority vote in Assembly down from 145 to 142.
BJP: Aur halla karo! Bring it on!

September 26: BJP breaks ties with Sena.
September 27: Is Sena breaking ties with BJP?
October: Will Sena snap ties with BJP?
November: Is the Sena relationship with BJP over?

The BJP-Shiv Sena relationship status…

For 25 years: Happily married!

Some time back: Working on our relationship.

After that: It’s complicated.

Now: We haven’t the foggiest idea what our relationship status is!

Congress-NCP: We’ll have what they’re having.

MNS: Now in the relationship (or marriage) market.

When the Shiv Sena and BJP broke up in Maharashtra…

Maharashtra politics…
2006: Pramod Mahajan, RIP.
2012: Vilasrao Deshmukh, RIP.
2012: Balasaheb Thackeray, RIP.
2014: Gopinath Munde, RIP.
2014: BJP-Sena alliance, RIP.
2014: Congress-NCP alliance, RIP.

February 14: Valentine’s Day.
September 25: Breakup Day.

When the news channels didn’t know whether they were breaking or not…

The BJP-Shiv Sena alliance is like Schrodinger’s Cat because it is simultaneously alive and dead.

Breaking News for 10 days…
BJP-Shiv Sena/NCP-Congress on the verge of breaking/breakthrough.
(Means we haven’t the foggiest idea but we will say we were right no matter what happens in the end)
