Tamil Nadu Congress Committee president K S Alagiri has urged superstar Rajinikanth to read Mahabharatham well for praising Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah as Lord Krishna and Arjuna.
In a statement, Alagiri wondered as to what made Rajini to liken Modi and Amit Shah with Krishna and Arjuna. “I request Rajini to read Mahabharatham again and again,” he added.
“How can those who snatched away the rights of crores of people be Krishna and Arjuna? Dear Rajinikanth, kindly read the Mahabharata again. Read it properly,” Alagiri said.
On Sunday, while speaking at a function organised to release the book titled ‘Listening, Learning and Leading’ which chronicles two years in office of Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu, Rajinikanth appreciated Shah on his ‘Mission Kashmir’ (revocation of Article 370 which conferred special status on Jammu and Kashmir), Rajinikanth termed it as a ‘fantastic’ move.
“We don’t know who is Krishna and who is Arjuna. It is only they know (Modi and Shah),” he said amid huge applause.
