No power? Use force

Rediff reports that 18 members of the Shiv Sena have been arrested in Pune after they assaulted employees of the state electricity board. They were upset about the frequent power outages, both in Maharashtra and, I suspect, in their own party. So they "scaled the walls of MSEB's office at Rasta Peth and beat up the employees".

I think I made a mistake calling them Mumbai's Taliban in an earlier post. They belong to all of Maharashtra. And aren't we proud?
