MAHARASHTRA I- Unlearnt Lessons of 1970

The prominent role of the Shiv Sena in the recent communal trouble in and around Bombay is a matter of common knowledge. It does seem though that the trouble blew up way beyond the party's expectation and control, claiming 258 lives, according to the government's figures.

Jan Sangh vs Shiv Sena

Poona: This city has two valid reasons to congratulate itself. First, the civic elections, despite the unusually noisy and vulgar canvassing, were conducted on the whole in a peaceful manner. Second, the electoral judgment is meaningful and falls in the contemporary post-generalelection pattern. No single party or alliance or front could muster an absolute majority in the civic body, which may lead one to believe that keen horse-trading is round the corner. More significant, however, is the fact that Poona has rejected the politics of fronts and alliances and has voted mostly for organised political parties of national stature.
