MNS activists attacked the students at the railway exam centers today morning for the only reason that they were not maharashtrians . These perverted acts of violence are not new to us anyway .Remember earlier this year when they they attacked north indian workers in mumbai and the remarks made on amitabh bhachan .
The most depressing and shocking fact is that they even justify it by saying that they want only local students to attend it.There were Protests like this earlier too at some engineering college where they demanded 90 percent reservation for the locals.This is silly . Every Indian whether from north ,south ,east or west has the right to study or work at his choice of place .Doesn’t he ?? If not whats the use calling ourselves citizen of independent india . Right to freedom which is one of the fundamental rights of our country allows a person to reside or settle at any part of the country. So the justifications does not make any sense at all . It just promotes regionalism.
Just look at the bigger picture . Imagine every state has a party that comes up and fights for priority for their own state people.Now its just jobs and education ,next they will say we don’t want them to live in our state because they use more resources like food ,electricity etc and they beat up people . Eventually .people will stop going to other states . Woudn’t that be a big blow to the integrity of the nation as a whole . Imagine a time when our country of over a billion people are limited within states . The time when INDIA will be a nation as whole only on the world MAP .Do we need such regional divides too when the country is still searching for way to curb communal and cultural divides !!!
