Tamil Nadu Congress has advised superstar Rajinikanth to read Mahabharat again after he equated Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah with Krishna, Arjuna while hailing the decision of scrapping Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir.
Tamil Nadu Congress president KS Alagiri took a dig at Rajinikanth and said he was surprised by what the veteran actor said.
“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.
Hailing the big decision concerning Jammu and Kashmir, Rajinikanth on Sunday had likened PM Modi and Amit Shah to Lord Krishna and Arjuna.
