Intimidation, threats and open violence. Political parties in Maharashtra may believe in different ideologies but they all speak the same language of violence. On Wednesday the NCP and MNS clashed across the state after MNS chief Raj Thackeray's car was stoned in Ahmednagar. NCP workers were angry about Raj's speech in which he targeted the uncle and nephew duo of Ajit and Sharad Pawar. Are political parties behaving more like the gangs of Maharashtra, especially as the general and assembly elections are both just a year away?
