Bal Thackerey and his political foundation is the nearest India has come to dicatorship.
He had the option to accomplish this status by the accompanying:
Public help: By picking up the trust of the Marathi manoos (individuals) base all in all, he was a broadly venerated well known person.
Incredible discourse abilities.
Unusual way of life: Participation past political life as a visual artist and a few famous propensities like a few different dicators (the never-ending stogie, shades openly, safron clothing, etc).
Revolutionary activities: Stance on Hindutva, migration and nature of political work stirred public help and resistance the same.
These components proceeded to make a huge help base for the man himself and made him a venerated figure among his vote bank, and some more, just as raised incredible resistance.
None the less, his keep going rituals proceeded to turn into the second biggest mass get-together on the passing of any individual of note post autonomy (second to Annadurai's demise).
The State government has a few provisos empowering them to utilize their prudence on granting a full State service for the last rituals of regarded figures in open life, and envisioning the politically touchy nature of the occasion, granted such an honor.
