Read Kashmir's history: Karti Chidambaram slams Rajinikanth for hailing govt move on Article 370
Congress MP from Sivagangai Karti Chidambaram has criticised South superstar Rajinikanth for hailing the government's move to scrap Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir. He also slammed the actor for comparing Home Minister Amit Shah and PM Narendra Modi as Krishna-Arjuna combo.
Karti Chidambaram also criticised the central government for using its "brute majority" in Lok Sabha to bring in bills and making them pass.
Karti Chidamabaram, while speaking to the media in Tamil Nadu's Pudukottai, said that the BJP is using its brute majority to bring in bills that are against the interest of the democracy.
Pointing at the RTI bill, New Medical council bill, among others, Karti Chidambaram said that the acts of the present government was against the interest of the people.
Further, talking about the Kashmir issue, Karti Chidambaram criticised the Centre of taking decisions in its own interest.
"At a time when Union Territories like Pudhucherry and Delhi are asking for statehood, we have the centre making a proper state into Union territory. This is done purely to bring the area under their control, to bring the Muslim population there under their control," Karti Chidambaram said.
He also said, "The Central government did not consult with the locals or the state leaders before making this move. Imagine a similar situation in Tamil Nadu, just ahead of Pongal, if our state is in a similar lockdown and situation, will we accept it? We will continue to protest against this undemocratic decision of the Centre."
Karti Chidambaram also criticised South superstar Rajinikanth for his recent comment where he called Home Minister Amit Shah and PM Modi like a Krishna-Arjuna duo.
Rajinikanth had hailed the relationship shared between Amit Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi as the Arjun and Krishna pair from the epic Mahabharat.
Rajinikanth said, "We don't know who is Krishna and who is Arjun. It is only they know [Modi and Shah]."
Karti Chidambaram not only registered his disappointment but also asked Rajinikanth to read history.
"I am deeply disappointed by the recent remarks of Rajinikanth comparing Amit Shah and Modi to Krishna and Arjun regarding the Kashmir issue. I feel Rajinikanth has made this remark without understand the history of Kashmir and India's constitutional history," Karti Chidambaram said.
He also said, "Rajini has recently said that he will enter politics and contest in the upcoming state elections. With an interest in active politics, he should react on all the pertinent topics in the country and not just select issues."
Karti Chidambaram said that Rajinikanth should also react on issues including the RTI bil and the NEET issue. He also requested the superstar to read the history of Kashmir as well as the history of Germany between 1930-1945.
"Let him react on RTI bill, NEET issue, and Mullaperiyar. Also, I request Rajini who reads the purana to read history of Kashmir and history of Germany between 1930-1945," Karti Chidambaram said.
