Congress Slams Rajinikanth on Praising Modi-Amit Shah, Advises Him to ‘Read Mahabharat Again’

Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2019-08-13

Congress in Tamil Nadu on Monday took a dig at South superstar Rajinikanth for likening Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah duo to Lord Krishna and Arjuna and wanted him to read Mahabharat "properly".

 

Day after the actor made the remark while appreciating the home minister for scrapping Article 370, Tamil Nadu Congress Committee president KS Alagiri said he did not expect such a reaction from him, adding, that he was surprised by it.

 

“How can those who snatched away the rights of crores of people could be Krishna and Arjuna ? dear Mr Rajinikanth, please read Mahabharat again, please go through it again properly,” Alagiri said.

 

Reiterating former Union finance minister P Chidambaram’s views, Alagiri said that the prime reason behind the Modi government’s decision to remove Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir was that it is a Muslim majority state. The Congress leader said many states in the North East have special status much like Jammu and Kashmir.

 

On Sunday, the actor had congratulated the Union Home Minister for the Centre's initiative on Kashmir. "Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah were like Lord Krishna and Arjuna," Rajinikanth had said.

 

“My heartfelt congratulations to Amit Shah for Mission Kashmir. Hats off. However, we don’t know who is Krishna and who is Arjuna,” Rajinikanth had said during an event in Chennai.

 

The Centre had last week revoked Jammu and Kashmir’s special status under Article 370 and announced that the state will be split into two union territories – Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. The move has been criticised by the Congress and a few Opposition parties, but the government received support of a few others like Mayawati’s BSP and Naveen Patnaik’s BJD in Parliament over it.
