Legendary Tamil actor Rajinikanth has metaphorically described the duo of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah as Krishna-Arjun. Speaking at an event in Chennai on Sunday, the veteran actor said that only the duo knew who among them was Arjun and Krishna.
Praising PM Modi and Shah, the legendary actor said that this was a bold step taken by them to integrate Jammu and Kashmir. He said, “My heartfelt congratulations to Honourable Amit Shah ji for Mission Kashmir sir. The way you conducted it, hats off. Especially the speech you delivered in parliament, fantastic sir fantastic. Now people will come to know who he is, Amit Shah.”

Rajinikanth also showered praises on Vice President Venkaiah Naidu calling him a spiritual leader. 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.”
Shah, for his part, said that he firmly believed that Art370 should’ve been removed long ago. “As a Home Minister,there was no confusion in my mind about the consequences of removing Art370. I’m confident terrorism in Kashmir will finish and it’ll move ahead on the path of development now,” Shah was quoted by ANI as saying.
Rajinikanth had announced his entry into electoral politics in 2017 but did not contest this year’s Lok Sabha polls. Experts say that his party may contest the next assembly polls with the help of the BJP in Tamil Nadu in 2021.
The government had abolished Article 370 on Jammu and Kashmir through a Presidential decree last week. The provisions of Article 370 gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir.
