It is not a lion's roar. But a dominant WOLF's HOWL.
He operated on the strength of numbers..... as WOLVES do. The basest of men exhibit territory instincts and pack instincts like wolves. Regionalism, language and tradition pride, religious fundamentalism etc are all part of this phenomenon! WOLVES are cranky and cunning..... yet ferocious in their combined action!

He was a Maharashtra tiger never liked others to work peacefully there.. first Gujaratis, then south indians, then biharis, UPities etc all of them suffered a lot in the hands of his men in the name of regionalism.
