‘Read Mahabharata Again’: Cong to Rajini on Krishna-Arjun Remark
Congress in Tamil Nadu on Monday, 12 August took potshots at top film star Rajinikanth for likening Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah duo to Lord Krishna and Arjuna, asking him to read Mahabharat properly.
States including those in the Norteast enjoyed special privileges like Kashmir did (previously), he said in a statement and wanted to know why these were not scrapped by the Centre.
The reason for doing away with Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir alone was due to its "Muslim majority" status, he alleged.
The Congress leader wanted to know if the actor toed the "one kind of justice for Kashmir and another for other states," policy of Shah.
Modi and Shah combine are not Krishna and Arjuna, he said and asked:
On Sunday, 11 August, Rajinikanth had congratulated the Union Home Minister for the Centre's initiative on Kashmir. Prime Minister Modi and Shah were like Lord Krishna and Arjuna, he had said.
However, "we don't know who is Krishna and who is Arjuna," added the actor.
The Krishna-Arjuna combination is credited with playing a key role in the Pandavas winning the Mahabharata battle against the Kauravas.
