It is a well known fact that Prakash More’s wife Shilpa More won the NMMC Elections from ward no. 49 only with the blessings and support of the Naik family. However, looks like Prakash More is trying to come out of the shadows of the Naik family and create his own political identity or so it seems when one looks at the several hoardings that Prakash More has splashed across the ward for his birthday. We say this, because none of the hoardings has the picture of any of the Naik family members but is just praises of himself. 14th October is the birthday of NCP party worker Prakash More. You would be wondering how we know this. Well, this was obvious with the amount of publicity that Prakash More is doing about his own birthday through hoardings. In these hoardings, the only one person that can be seen is newly self acclaimed youth icon Prakash More along with a litany of his praises. However, what is shocking is that while its only Prakash More in all the boards, his own party mentors of Navi Mumbai have gone missing from the hoardings. It has been a tradition for many years for the NCP workers too display the images of Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik, MP Dr. Sanjeev Naik, MLA Sandeep Naik or Mayor Sagar Naik in the political hoardings as a symbol of their respect and honor. However, looks like Prakash More is trying to come out of the shadows of the Naik family and carve a different image for himself as a youth icon. Infact, Prakash More is so self obsessed that he even chose to ignore his corporator wife Shilpa More in the hoardings because of whom he has got the recognition in the party. Everyone knows that Prakash More’s wife Shilpa More was chosen by the residents of the ward, not because of her, but because of the blessings and support of the Naik family. It maybe noted that in the past too, the residents of the ward have shown their loyalty by electing MP Dr. Sanjeev Naik twice and Ganesh Naik’s younger brother Dyaneshwar Naik as their representative. Even during the MP and MLA elections, the residents of the ward gave them votes in majority. During this time, the minister and his sons themselves came to the ward and appealed to residents to vote for their candidate Shilpa More, but seems like this is all forgotten by Prakash More who conveniently sidelined the members of the Naik family by not including them in his birthday celebrations. The million question is that why did not Prakash More include the members of the Naik family in the hoardings, something that only Prakash More can answer. Now only time will tell if this incident gives Prakash More glory or disgrace. With bureau inputs, Monika Bhosale for NMTV News.
