They groomed him. Now they're trying to control him.
Raj Thackeray is the demon created by the combined forces of Congress and NCP to weaken the real threat, Shiv Sena. They didn't touch him even while his blind army was destroying the cosmopolitan culture of Mumbai, thrashing North Indians, breaking taxis-rickshaws.
The Maharashtra even let him use Govt quarters for his Konkan tour!
But Raj Thackeray grew faster than they expected. Became more popular than they planned.
This demon is uncontrollable. But the Maha govt realised this only when the North Indian allies of UPA started putting more pressure on the Union Govt. Finally Raj was arrested and released. But I guess this arrest drama helps him more than the Govt, which is trying to save the face.
