Anupam Kher Praises PM Modi, Celebrates Abrogation of Article 370
Actor Anupam Kher attended Sahitya AajTak in New Delhi organised by the India Today Group on Friday. Speaking about the government and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Anupam Kher said that he gets trolled for supporting the PM and that PM Modi is the “most incorruptible national leader”.
“He has changed the scenario of Indian politics. This is the truth and we need people who can speak as well as believe in this truth. His staggering win is proof,” he added.
On Delhi’s Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal
The actor also went on to criticise Delhi’s Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. At Sahitya Aaj Tak, Anupam Kher said that Kejriwal has turned out to be the “biggest disappointment”. “My biggest disappointment is Arvind Kejriwal. He gave us the dream of a corruption-free India. He turned out to be like any other politician. Why has everyone left him, except Manish Sisodia,” Kher added.
On Abrogation of Article 370
Speaking at ‘Lessons Life Taught You’ at Today Group’s event, Kher also spoke about the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir.
I don’t know why people were worried about it. It was for the good of the people, it was a wrong [that was] carried on for 70 years, it should have changed a long time ago. I am a Kashmiri Pandit, even though I was born in Shimla. I can say that Article 370 was taking away the full independence of the country. It’s good for Muslims, Kashmiris and Sikhs because they should enjoy the Indian infrastructure equally. Many didn’t even know that Article 370 was taking away certain rights. I will rejoice that somebody had the guts to change that.Anupam Kher, Actor
