Clearly, under the circumstances, the Congress could do no better than Ashok Chavan — unless the party has a death wish and wishes to shoot itself in the foot again!

Some years ago, when the war between the Pawars’ Sakal and the Jadhavs’ Pudhari was at its peak with the latter venturing out of its home base of Kolhapur and launching an edition in Pune, I was rather startled by the amount of dirt they were willing to fling at each other.

What goes around comes around in full measure. Raj Thackeray’s party, MNS finally seems to be crumbling like a cookie at the slightest pressure.

Murli Deora was almost the first person I met in Bombay when I first arrived in this big bad metropolis from Nagpur — and, indeed, the first celebrity politician apart from those I already knew from my home town.

After nearly 30 years, the Shiv Sena and the Congress find themselves being forced into the unenviable position of becoming comrades-in-arms once again.
