As usual, Sena Attacks Valentines-Day!!!!!

Days after Maharashtra Navnirman Sena's rage on the streets of Mumbai and some other parts of Maharashtra, its counterpart Shiv Sena took over on Thursday, targeting people, shops and vendors who had anything to do with Valentine's Day.

In Delhi, about a dozen Sena protesters briefly blocked a road early on Wednesday and burnt Valentine's Day cards and gifts, chanting 'Down with Valentine'.

The Delhi Police maintained a strong vigil around parks, shopping malls and popular joints to deal with any untoward situation.

Mobile units of the police are on the prowl around colleges and at the Delhi University campus.

In Lucknow, Sena activists sent out a diktat against Valentine's Day celebration and threatened to beat up couples found celebrating their love.

"Our volunteers will check parks, hotels and restaurants and swoop upon young lovers found walking hand-in-hand," Vijay Tiwari, a Shiv Sena activist in Lucknow, said.

"We are deadly against Valentine's Day," Sapan Dutta, a Sena leader, said. "We are for civilized love and affection."

Police in Lucknow said they would stop any intimidation.

In Pune, activists of Sena Bharatiya Vidyarthi Sena, Shiv Sena's student wing, protested outside prominent colleges.

They tore Valentine's Day cards and shouted slogans. Several Vidyarthi Sena activists were taken into custody and police pickets have been deployed outside the colleges.

What do u think this is? Is it justified? Do u oppose this? Or u support Sena on this front?

Raj Thackeray Arrested and Bailed Out!!!!

In a typical bollywood styled melo drama, Raj Thackeray, Head of MNS Party, was arrested and after 2 hrs of court hearing was given Bail as well.

Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray was released on bail on Wednesday evening hours after he was arrested on the charge of promoting enmity among groups.

The court of the metropolitan magistrate in Vikhroli granted him conditional bail after he furnished a bond of Rs 15,000. The court barred him from speaking to the media or a gathering of more than four people.

Raj’s lawyers held a lengthy argument at the court against the restrictions but the magistrate told the MNS chief that he would be sent to judicial custody in case he refuses to follow the restrictions.

Raj was arrested from his Shivaji Park residence at around 1615 hrs IST on the charge of promoting enmity among ethnic groups by using invectives and provocative language over the presence of north Indians in Mumbai

MNS party people have created a tense atmosphere in Mumbai and Ofcourse damaging the public property, on the name of "My People".
