    The way Thackrey and his activists are behaving in Mumbai and now in Pune , they should be punished for it. Beating up innocent people, if they have guts go ahead and beat the Military Officers and Jawans in Mumbai or Pune , the IPS Officers Central Govt Employees, who all are deputed in Mumbai (After all they all are from North India) -

    But they dont have Guts - they know that they can only beat those who all are Taxi Drivers , Shopkeepers... I am a Puneite, and here the Maharashtrian and Non Maharashtrian are all one. Well Citzens - now the time has come that we should understand that we all are one and these chaps are doing nothing but they are fucking our Nations Integrity just for the heck of their own benefits. Thackrey got arrested , and Now he got bail in 3 hrs. What does this implies, it simply implies that the Police and other Politicians are supporting.

    I think it is the time for making a seperate BOMBAY state like Goa. Let it done and put all Marathis out of Bombay State. Let Pune will be a capital of Maharastra. Mr. Raj Thakrey and other dirty politician please do not waste your time think about our country's development. God Bless you all.

    Dirty politics. Thats what is the cause of all this violence in Mumbai. First of all politicians should be banned from arranging rallys. People are suffering and these dirty poticians are sleeping comfortably with AC on and act as if unaware of happenings around them. Some uncultured, brainless and traitors join these politicans and start riots.

    Today they were showing in ZEE TV the way these traitors were asking the name and beating the guys from UP/Bihar. These people don't realise if they drive away people from UP/Bihar or people belong to any other state Mumbai will be a desert. There should be a strict law and police should be given orders to shoot these miscreants then and there so that nobody would dare to resort to violence.
