It seems Raj Thackeray said “he would beat Patil with shoes for neglecting his constituency“. And Patil, who effectively beat our terrorist cousins out of India, said “If he has the guts to come out in the open, I challenge him to a wrestling duel“. Patil is 74, Raj Shrikant Thackeray is 41, and an and a totally cool dude.
It’s not a joke, if these morons manage to do something stupid like get killed or something doing the duel, they’ll do the republic a big favour.
Maharashtra Elections are around the corner, and NDTV and IBN have two blogs on the politics of Maratha land. I’m not a big fan of NDTV (With Barkha around no one can be), but the distance between Srinivasan Jain’s write up and Rajdeep Sardesai’s write up is clearly, at least for me, the distance between journalism and third rate journalism.
P.S: You can read about the original King Kong Vs Dhara Singh duel here.
