Thackeray blames Muslims for defeat
A classic recipe for disaster - an aging politico, who has lost his touch flailing to shift the blame in any which way for a defeat from which he may never see his party recover. Good for the country.
Oh, BTW, interestingly, albeit a little worryingly, the Sena was the only party which increased its vote share in these elections. In spite of the loss of nearly 7% votes, Congress got more seats. Yes, may be because of strategic voting. But if it is so, what is the solution? I do not think there is anything wrong with strategic voting, as long as the group indulging in it makes sure it does not spoil them.
It was the Sena's fault that they decided to alienate the Muslims and non-Maharashtrians completely, gambling for the Maharashtrian vote. They are paying for it.
