Thane has always been known as Shiv Sena’s fort. With the victory of Dr. Sanjeev Naik as the MP of Thane, both Shiv Sena and NCP are competing for powers here. Realizing that it’s loosing out, the Congress wants to focus on Thane and so the state Congress convened a party workers meet. Unfortunately, party workers were caught on camera sleeping away to glory even as their leaders stood on the dais lecturing them. It couldn’t get more boring for the Congress party workers of Thane than this meet or so it seemed. What else can explain these visuals where you can see Congress party workers sleeping away to glory even as Maharshtra Pradesh Congress Committee Chief Manikrao Thakray was present on the dais and giving his address? Thane has been Shiv Sena’s fort as the party has ruled the Thane Municipal Corporation for 18 years and had given the constituency a MP for almost two decades. Last year the NCP created history as Dr. Sanjeev Naik won the parliamentary elections from the Thane constituency. With the powers of NCP and Shiv Sena – MNS balancing their hold on the region, the Congress seems to be the only loser here. Hence the Congress too has decided to come out with strategies to strengthen the party here. In the course a party’s meet was held where MPCC Chief Manikrao Thakre was present. The Congress formula to build the party however seemed to be sleeping away as was evident during the meeting when instead of getting inspired and motivated to hear their leaders speak, congress party workers instead were caught sleeping away to glory. Perhaps it was the air-conditioned hall that added to the comfort too. With bureau inputs, Manoj Singh for NMTV News.
