Chennai | Superstar-turned-politician Rajinikanth has praised Modi government’s move of scrapping Article 370 and congratulated them for ‘Mission Kashmir’.
Rajinikanth said, “My heartful congratulations to you for mission Kashmir. The speech you delivered in Parliament was fantastic”.
He further compared Home Minister Amit Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Lord Krishna and Arjuna from Mahabharata.
“Amit Shah and Modi ji is like Krishna-Arjuna combo. They only know who is whom. I’m wishing good luck to you and good luck to the country through you.”
Speaking at the book launch of Vice President Venkaiah Naidu, he said, “Venkaiah Naidu always thinks for the welfare of people. He has become a politician by mistake as he is an excellent spiritual leader.”
India on August 5 revoked Article 370 to withdraw the special status to Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcated the state into two Union Territories — Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
Rajinikanth announced his entry into politics in 2017. He then confirmed his intention to contest in the 2021 Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly elections in all 234 constituencies.
Meanwhile, curfew and Section 144 has been lifted from several areas of Jammu and Kashmir.
