Raj Thackeray a novice, Shiv Sena says after toll stir
‘There were apprehensions that due to the MNS roadblocks, the entire state would be paralyzed and the streets would be deserted ... with only the (MNS) activists visible,’ the Shiv Sena said in an editorial in the party mouthpiece, Saamana.

‘On the contrary, the streets were full of people but agitators returned home before 2 pm!’ said the editorial, taking a dig at Raj Thackeray without naming him.

It said the policemen on ‘bandobast’ (arrangement) duty did nothing but kill flies and ‘many were wondering where is the agitation going on?’

‘Never before in the history of the state has any major agitation ended in such a disaster,’ the edit piece said. It also pointed out that the minute the MNS top leaders were placed under preventive detention, the second and third rung leadership collapsed and the agitation fizzled out.

The Shiv Sena’s viewpoint came in the wake of the MNS virtually hijacking its anti-toll agenda and grabbing the limelight with Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan assuring concessions on the toll imbroglio that has gripped the state in the past few weeks.
