Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress are all set to form government in Maharashtra after the 'unholy nexus' as termed by the BJP. Ideologies have been thrown into the wind and rivals Shiv Sena and Congress have come together only to keep the BJP away.
With Shiv Sena's Uddhav Thackeray all set to be chief minister of Maharashtra, a video of Shiv Sena founder and former chief Bal Thackeray is doing the rounds.
Bal Thackeray had slammed the Gandhi family, especially - Sonia Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi along with Ahmed Patel.
He had termed Gandhi family as Italian invaders and likened them to the British and Mughals, who captured the country.
"You have to decide if you want to be a gentleman or a scoundrel. If anybody is trying to become a scoundrel okay. But I will not go along with the scoundrel, whoever it may be," Bal Thackeray had said.
Here is MyNation's Just for Laughs section looking back at the words of Bal Thackeray and what he may have thought about Uddhav Thackeray's rise and decision of forming government in Maharashtra with the help of Congress.
