Shiv Sena Attacks Big B, Praises Rajnikanth

Times of India 
MUMBAI, Apr 5: Targeting Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan on the issue of Marathi pride, Shiv Sena on Saturday said he is not doing anything for Maharashtra, while Rajnikant is agitating for Tamil Nadu on the Hogenakkal water issue.

An article in Shiv Sena mouthpiece, Samana said, "several actors, who live in Mumbai achieve fame and glory. But when it comes to taking a firm stand on the issue of Marathi or regional pride, many of them including film star Amitabh Bachchan backtrack."

"But Rajnikant is one of the rare persons who has been true to the culture of Maharashtra. This is because he has taken side of the state which has made him big," the article said.

The reference points to the fact that Rajnikant was born in Maharashtra, grew up in Karnataka but became a superstar in Tamil Nadu.

The article headline said Rajnikant Khalya Meethala Jaagla (Rajnikant has been loyal). The report also questioned how many actors in Mumbai would have the guts to agitate for a cause of Mumbai or regional pride.

    I do not understand why politicians try to divide the nation based on regionalism. We blame Pakistan and other neighbours for creating terrorism within the country but regional political parties have proved to be more dangerous compared to outside sources. Beware every INDIAN !
