Striking while the iron is hot!

Dadar - Politics works on opportunity. And what better opportunity than the hordes of followers who descend to pay their respects to a departed leader?
On the occasion of 60th Mahaparinirvan Diwas, political parties such as Shiv Sena, BJP, MNS and the NCP have put up banners and posters in the ward number -195. Every political party is busy wooing Dalit voters by posting banners singing praises to Ambedkar overtly, and pushing their own agenda covertly.
Food stalls have also been set up by all the political parties to ensure they leave no stones unturned to lure the Dalit voters. The Sena has its own stall at Shivaji Park too. All in all, Ambedkar followers are being well looked after at least for the day!
