Superstar Rajnikanth on Sunday praised the Centre’s decision of scrapping Article 370 that gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir. The actor-turned-politician also equated the Modi-Shah duo to Lord Krishna and Arjuna.
Speaking at the launch of a book on Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu in Chennai, he said, “My heartfelt congratulations to Amit Shah for Mission Kashmir operation. The way you conducted it, especially the speech you delivered in Parliament was fantastic. Amit Shah ji and Modi ji are like Krishna-Arjuna combination.”

Comparing the combination of PM Modi and Shah to Lord Krishna and Arjuna, the actor said, “We don’t know who is Krishna and who is Arjuna.”
Last week, the Centre had revoked the provisions of Article 370 that gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcated the state into two Union Territories – Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah, who was also present at the event, said the removal of special status to Jammu and Kashmir will end terrorism and enable the progress of the region.
“As a Home Minister, there was no confusion in my mind about the consequences of removing Art 370. I am confident terrorism in Kashmir will finish and it will move ahead on the path of development now,” Shah said.
