"आता आम्हाला वाचवायला राज ठाकरे येणार का?'

राज ठाकरेंनी छेडलेल्या आंदोलनाची झळ आता इतर प्रांतात राहणाऱ्या महाराष्ट्रीयन लोकांनाही बसू लागली आहे.

हरियाणातील करनाल येथे राहणाऱ्या विजय सुर्यवंशी यांच्या घरी बुधवारी रात्री काही सशस्त्र गुंड घुसले आणि त्यांना "महाराष्ट्रात परत जा अन्यथा तुम्हाला संपवून टाकू' अशी धमकी दिली. या प्रसंगानंतर विजय सुर्यवंशी आणि त्यांच्या कुटुंबाल प्रचंड धक्का बसला आहे. गेली १५ वर्षे करनाल मध्ये राहत असलेल्या सुर्यवंशी कुटुंबियांना हा प्रकार अतिशय अनपेक्षित असाच होता.

हा राज ठाकरे यांनी परप्रांतीयांविरुद्ध घेतलेल्या भूमिकेचाच परिणाम असल्याने "आता आम्हाला वाचवायला राज ठाकरे येणार आहेत का', असा प्रश्‍न सुर्यवंशी यांच्या पत्नी कल्पना यांनी केला आहे.

केवळ आम्ही महाराष्ट्रीयन असल्यामुळे आमच्यावर असा प्रसंग पहिल्यांदाच आला आहे, असे कल्पना सूर्यवंशी यांनी म्हटले आहे. तसेच आम्ही येथून कुठेही जाणार नाही कारण हा "आमचा देश' आहे. आणि देशात कोठेही राहण्याचा आणि काम करण्याचा आम्हाला पूर्ण अधिकार आहे. राज ठाकरेंची भूमिका पूर्णपणे चुकीची आहे, असे मतही कल्पना यांनी व्यक्त केले.

करनालमध्ये सुमारे ५०० मराठी कुटुंबं आहेत. या घटनेचा धसका या सर्वांनीच घेतला आहे.

केवळ करनाल किंवा हरियाणाच नाही तर झारखंड, मध्य प्रदेश, गुजरात या राज्यांतील मराठी लोकांनाही आता आपल्यावरही असाच प्रसंग येणार नाही ना, अशी भीती वाटत आहे.

सूर्यवंशी कुटुंबीयांना मराठी असण्याचा झालेला तोटा इतर प्रांतात राहणाऱ्या आणखी किती कुटुंबीयांना बसणार हे आता तरी सांगता येणार नाही. पण, हे लोण असेच पसरत राहिले तर मराठीजनांना पळता भुई थोडी होईल, यात शंका नाही. एवढंच नाही, तर प्रांतीय वाद उफाळून येऊन सर्वच परप्रांतीय एकमेकांविरुद्ध बंड पुकारतील. अशा अवस्थेत राजकारण्यांची सामंज्यस्याची भूमिका घेणे, केव्हाही चांगले. आपल्याला काय वाटते?

तुमचा लेख वाचला. छान मुद्दा मांडले आहेत. मी politics चा विचार न करणारी मुलगी आहे. पण माला,येथे एकच मुद्दा मांडायचा आहे. महाराष्ट्रीयन माणून महाराष्ट्रात job नाहीत म्हणून बाहेर पडत नाही. अशी परिस्थिती बिहार मधे का नाही? सर्व बिहारी लोकांना आम्ही मुंबईत किंबहूना महाराष्ट्रात पाठवू हा attitude का?

बिहार हा एक भारताचा भाग आहे. त्याची प्रगती एवढी करून दाखवा की उद्या एक मराठी माणसाने बिहार ला जाण्याच स्वप्न बघितले पाहिजे. दिसतो तोम्हाला बिहार ह्याचा १% तरी जवळ आहे.

Great article. Hope Raj Thackeray finds something else to do his "time pass".

Hope he realizes how weak and vulnerable people feel outside of their majority cover. There is no pride in doing "goondagiri" in Mumbai and harassing poor people like taxi drivers and those who take railway exams.

mr suryavanshi,u r not totally right.we r with u,but the role of RAJ THAKEREY is totally RIGHT.u r in karnal,means u r doing good for karnal.but UP BIHAR k bhikari by coming here r not doing any good for maharashtra.and also no any maharashtra leader comes in karnal and doing politics there ,like LALOO does in mumbai.this is basic difference.RAJ never says to go for good people,like gujrathi,marwadi,shikhs.TAKE CARE

Raj Thakare is not a good leader. if he wants to promote any issue like to he should take it to the concerned people and not take law and order in his hands to hit innocense students or common man to promote his agenda. this is a totally wrong way to go.

Raj has already harmed the image of Maharashtra.

I am maharastian and marathi and I support that you can go and live anywhere in India irrespective of your cast or language.

Marathis living outside Mahatrashtra are living without harm to others. They haven't taken away their job opportunities for years and years. They haven't killed local languages of the respective states. You can't really compare a bhaiyya and Marathi. Marathis are well civilised and extremely sensible lot. That's why we reacted after accommodating 2 crore outsiders, and they reacted after just a single small-scale thrashing.

Like Kaustubh, I am living out of Maharashtra in Hyderabad. But still, I support Rajsaheb.

To be frank, these two situations cant be compared.
Mr. Suryavanshi may be right in venting out his frustration, but neither MNS nor Mr. Raj have asked good people to leave Maharashtra for the sake of leaving.
If his statement is to be supported now, why not at least 5 MPs resign here ? As it is the LS is going to be over and elections are due...

I think this all has been blown out of all proportions.

1. Raj Thakre's Intention:
What Raj is saying, as i understand, is that when employment opportunities that have been created in Maharashtra and are using Maharashtra's resources, then equal opportunities should be given to Maharashtrians as well. e.g. as found out using RTI, the railway jobs for Mumbai have largely (90%) gone to Biharis. Now is it mere coincidence that it all happened when Lalu Yadav is the Railway Minister?

2. When Raj raised this issue, other policitical parties saw this as an opportunity to do votebank politics. Its really a shame that these so called progressive parties did not realise what it would soon lead to, i.e. a sense of resentment, mistrust between people from different states.

I am sure every Indian would agree that, while its his/her right to go anywhere in the country, its also his/her responsibility to 'mix' with the local culture.

And its the responsibility of the local and national leaders/politicians/office bearers to maintain the right mix. It would not be fair if the local people's rights, their wellbeing is overlooked in favour of people migrating.

We all (on this blog) are educated people. We need to realise that the politicians are playing this up for their own vested interests. And, please for sake of ourselves, Maharashtrians in other states should not be made target for this. You are not helping the nation by doing that. The only people that are benefitting from that are those politicians with those vested interests.
We need to root these bad elements out. And we can do it.

Jai Hind.
Jai Bharat.

Raj is being persecuted for being right. He has said something which is not easy to digest. But Rajsaheb is in the heart of no-resident and Resident Mahharashtriyas.

I agree with Ashok's views. What is Mahrashtra Govt. doing? Responsibility is on Vilasrao Deshmukh. He is timid and won't talk to Hooda, Chief Minister of Haryana. He will rather gag Raj Thackeray, who is the real champion of Marathis.

श्री.सुर्यवंशींचा अनुभव कुणाहि मराठी माणसाच्या नशिबी येउ नये.येथे राज ठाकरे यांना आंदोलन सुरू करण्याची पाळी येणे व त्यानंतर पहिले कांही दिवस बघ्याची भुमिका घेवून हे लोण इतर प्रांतात पसरायला महाराष्ट्रातले सरकारच सर्वस्वी जबाबदार आहे!
पहिल्यापासून खंबीर वागले असते व बोलले असते तर इतर राज्यातल्या नेत्यांना वचक बसला असता व ही आग वणव्यासारखी पसरली नसती! परंतु राज ठाकरे यांचा "स्वपक्षांच्या" फ़ायद्याकरता "वापर" करण्याचे ठरविल्यावर व दिल्लीवर अवलंबून राहिल्यामुळे सर्वच हाताबाहेर गेले म्ह्णून अशी परिस्थिती उद्भभवली आहे!
आम्ही महाराष्ट्राबाहेर कोलकत्याला २१ वर्षे राहिलो जेव्हा तेथे नेक्षलवादी,कम्युनिस्ट नेते वगैरे अतिशय जहाल होते,पण महाराष्ट्रात तेव्हाहि कित्येक बंगाली गुण्यागोविंदाने रहात असल्यामुळे व दोन्ही राज्यांच्या कुठल्याहि नेत्यानी समंजसपणा दाखविल्यामुळे जिवाला किंवा नोकरीला तसा धोका निर्माण झाला नाही!
त्याउलट आजची परिस्थिती आहे! प्रत्येक गोष्टीत फ़क्त राजकारण करायचे व मतांसाठी आप्तेष्टांनासुद्धा सुळीवर चढवायचे व येथिल नेत्यांनी परकरात असल्यासारखे वागायचे[आबा पाटिल सोडून!]म्हणून ही आक्रमणे करायला परप्रांतीय धजायला लागले आहेत!

"The wearer knows where [& how]the shoe pinches.There is every need to show solidarity & sympathy with those marathi manus staying/working outside Maharashtra in stead of arguing about pros & cons of Raj Thakare's agitation.

The ruling Congress & NCP leaders of M'tra also must act aggressively & swiftly through their counterparts in other states to defuse the situation & safeguard the lives,property & jobs of all such Maharashtrians,otherwise history will not forgive them for their cowardice so far.

And stop awaiting instructions of Sonia madam for everything, if you wish to lay any claim to being descedants of Chhtrapati Shivaji!
So far,you have been the biggest cowards & allowed the situation to deteriorate to this pass!!!

The buck stops with you!!! So ACT & stop giving lameduck speeches in patrakar parishads!

भारतात कुणालही कुठेही रहाण्याचा, काम करण्याचा अधिकार आहे..बिहारी लोक फक्त मुंबई मधेच येतात? अरे ते तर भारतात सगळी कडे जातात.. महाराष्ट्रीयन सुद्धा सगळीकडे जातातच....५ वर्ष जेव्हा ह्यांचा सरकार होता तेव्हा काय केला ? तेव्हा का नाही रेल्वे परीक्षा बद्दल बोलले... केन्द्रात सुद्धा हेच होते ना..?

नुसता राजकारण... ह्यांना झेड सुरक्षा आणि आम्हा सामान्याना काय?

आता बिहार, पंजाब मधे मराठी लोकांना त्रास... नन्तर बाकीच्या राज्यात्...बर जर म्हणुन सगळे महाराष्ट्रात परतलो तर हे देणार का आम्हाला नोकर्‍या?

Dont blame Raj , send this article copy and u r complaint to our so called Marathi or Maharashtra Minister. After hearing u r voice at least they understand the difference between Marathi and Bihari. Through this one suggestion to bihari and some misguided UP people , Agar sab Marathi logo nay apna tal shoda na to bahut bura ho ga, hamari shahishnuta hamari kamjori nahi hay.

Why is today's Sakal carrying a contrary news to this one ? Something is fishy.

1. Marathi living outside are for jobs. They dont want to reside there forever.

2. Given the same job in Maharashtra, Marathi will next day come back from around the world!

3. Bihar/UP and Orissa Politicians have taken Maharashtra for granted to employ their il-literate youths ( I REWRITE ILLITRATE YOUTHS). There are few literate class, which become IAS officers and Business Class.

4. All people writing blog here have to visit Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerela, Andhra Pradesh.

YOU CANNOT READ A WORD OF THEIR LANGUAGE. SOME SIGNS DONT EVEN CARRY ENGLISH OR HINDU WRITINGS.


5. SIMLY OPPOSING RAJ THAKRE ON ALL ISSUES IS NOT CORRECT. ON MARATHI HE IS RIGHT. ON RESERVATIONS FOR LOCALS HE IS RIGHT. ON MIGRATION OF UP/BIHARIS HE IS RIGHT.

TODAYS POLITICAL PARTIES CONGRESS(I), CPM, DMK, CPI(M), JDU ARE CRIMINAL PARTIES. ADDED TO THESE IS THE MEDIA SUPPORT FROM THERE OWN PEOPLE AND CHANNELS AND NEWS PAPERS. THESE CRIMINALS KNOW HOW TO CROSS THE LAW (WHICH NEEDS CHANGE).

RAJ THAKRE HAS TO START SOMEWHERE, WITH PRESENT DIRTY CRIMINAL POLITICIANS HE DID HIS BEST.

GANDHIJI's NON-VIOLENCE WILL NOT WORK IN TODAYS WORLD. TODAY POLITICAL WORLD HAS BECOME VIOLENT, CRIMINAL and UN-IMMIGANERY.

IF BULLET-FOR-BULLET WAS PRAISED BY MAHARASHTRA, SOME STRICT RULES TO DEFEAT TODAYS CRIMINAL GANGS AND POLITICIANS BY RAJ IS WELCOME!

Instead of making issue of single family, please be widen to state wise reservation concept behind this thought.

When King Shivaji has developed concept of “Swarajya”, lot of families have been suffered, but who remembers that. If they have not contributed at that time then today also we would have been in same situation, same as 150 yrs back.

So please don’t concentrate on individuals & be respectful on the loyal thought raised in NEW RAPPER by somebody.

Yes we all are agreeing that in India anybody can work anywhere but it doesn’t mean that local candidate should be replaced by other one.
But there must be some rules by each state Govt. on every employer that there should be a ratio of mixed employees like 80% local employees & 20% max from other states.

If everybody will follow this in every state, this issue will get sorted. But one more thing is that Industrialists should plan their plants in all the areas of our country so that chances of jobs will allow every individual to stay at there state only & politician also should support them. If Nano plant would have established where it plans, then just think how would that area developed & how many peoples would get job in there home state.

I have lot of sympathy to Mr. Vijay Survanshi & family and also all Marathi family leaves in Haryana, but please don’t get panic & keep trust on the concept & Govt.

काही उपाय .

३) देश्याच्या एकीवर याचा परिणाम होइल का?...

Dear Dhanu,
Thanks for the prescription for Marathi problem. We are making a study on what changes can be made in the present Interstate Migrant Labor Act 1979 to stop this labor force and get Marathi people employed more and more. On Nov 13, 2008, Meghalay has introduced the system of licensing of these labourers only for 179 days, one day short of 6 months at atime, so that they do not ever get a right to vote. The problem is, they come, they trundle their belongings and they flourish. It doesn't stop there. They vote. Therefore their masters manipulate them and the whole of Maharashtra sitting in Bihar or UP. Research on new methods to stop immigration from other parts in Pune is on.
