‘Khoke’ ruckus continues to rock Maharashtra politics for fifth day

Published

on

 The ‘khoke’ (crore) row continued to rock Maharashtra politics for the fifth straight day with Chief Minister Eknath Shinde’s group and Opposition Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) targeting each other, here on Thursday.

The Shinde Group legislators lampooned Shiv Sena leader and ex-minister Aditya Thackeray, displaying posters on which he is shown astride a horse facing the opposite direction, outside the Vidhan Bhavan building.

The banners carried slogans like �Yuvrajanchi Disha Chukli’ (the prince missed the route), and Maharashtra’s �pa pu’ or �param pujya’ and calling him the �Prince pappu of Maharashtra, as the Shinde Group MLAs raised slogans to counter MVA legislators.

The posters also ridiculed Aditya Thackeray for doing ‘nothing’ when he was the tourism minister, but instead touring the state now, adding that his ‘adamance’ cost the Shiv Sena its government.

On his part, Aditya Thackeray — the son of ex-CM Uddhav Thackeray — hit back by raising the familiar ’50 Khoke’ (Rs 50 crore in street slang) slogan implying how the Shinde Group MLAs allegedly got the huge amount to switch sides and topple the MVA government of Shiv Sena-Nationalist Congress Party-Congress in June.

Aditya Thackeray even joined the MVA chorus of ’50 Khoke, Chidley Boke’ (Rs 50 crore, irate cats), �gaddars’ (traitors) plus all the other slogans that have rattled the Shinde Group in the past five days of the legislature’s monsoon session, leading to a bout of jostling and fisticuffs on Wednesday.

He dared the Shinde Group’s 40 MLAs to resign from their constituencies and contest the elections afresh, saying, “Let the electorate and masses decide who is right or wrong once and for all.”

The Shinde Group hit back by demanding that first he should quit from his Worli seat where he was perched on the support of other legislators and an ex-Mayor, to which Aditya Thackeray said he would resign after the 40 MLAs from the rival camp quit.

“What they are indulging in is �Ravan Raj’, not ‘Ram Rajya’… I pity them as the 40 MLAs have been denied what they were promised. They should take up the issues of the people, farmers and youth,” said Aditya Thackeray.

The Congress-NCP MLAs also raised slogans demanding a �wet drought’ to be declared in the state, compensation to farmers and other related issues.

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has decided to include more women in decision-making committees of the Board.

After discontinuing its women’s wing in March 2022, the AIMPLB has not only restored it now, but has decided to include them in all its important committees for getting their views.

The women’s wing will educate women of the community about the rights and duties of women, according to Islamic Shariat.

Women members of the Board will campaign against expensive marriages, dowry in the Muslim society, as well as make families aware of giving daughters a share in the property instead of dowry.

Dr. Qasim Rasool Ilyas, executive member of the AIMPLB, said, “The women’s wing has been restored in the Board meeting on Sunday. The AIMPLB has 251 members across the country, out of which the number of women members is 30. The number of members of the executive committee is 51 in which four women have been included.”

He said, “Now, there will be one convener and five joint conveners in the women’s wing of the Board. They will work to make women members across the country. These members will make women aware about the rights of women and their duties found in Islamic Shariat. They will also give information about Islah-e-Ashara Tafaheem-e-Shariat and Kanoon-e-Shariat.”

Dr Qasim said that the AIMPLB has made Nikahnama simpler with some changes to bring it down from four pages to two pages. In the Nikahnama, along with the information about the husband and his rights after marriage, his duties have been given and guidelines have been given to the Qazi who performs marriage ceremony.
