Mumbai-based author Shobhaa De is courting controversy with her tweet on the Maximum City, "Maharashtra and Mumbai??? Why not? Mumbai has always fancied itself as an independent entity, anyway. This game has countless possibilities." Her views are ruffling political feathers in the state with the leaders from the opposition hitting out at the author. Sanjay Raut, Shiv Sena leader said, "We have asked the Government of Maharashtra that such kind of a statement from anyone, be it Shobhaa De also, should be seen as betrayal of the state. They should be booked for such a crime and jailed." Even MNS Chief Raj Thackeray took a jibe at the author over her controversial tweet. "It is not as easy as taking divorce. Shobhaa De should understand this," Thackeray said. The author later clarified her stand saying her tweet has been misinterpreted. But with the political debate intensifying over demand for smaller states across the nation, the author's tweet is just adding on to the debate.
