Superstar Rajinikanth has called revocation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir by PM Modi-led government a 'master strategy'. Article 370 gave Jammu and Kashmir a special status. This special status came to an end as provisions of Article 370 were abrogated on August 5.
"The way they planned the entire issue,it was a master strategy.First, they imposed section 144 & ensured that people don't create any trouble.Then they tabled the bill, first in Rajya Sabha where they don't have majority& then got it passed in Lok Sabha," he said.

"They planned and executed it perfectly. Politicians should know what to politicize and what not to politicize. I appreciate this move of the government because it is related to national security," he said further.
Just a few days ago, the actor-turned-politician had likened PM Modi and Amit Shah to Lord Krishna and Arjun.
Rajinikanth was 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.
Hindu God Krishna is considered to be an incarnation of Lord Vishnu and Arjuna was his disciple and a warrior in the epic Mahabharat.
Article 370 was revoked on August 5. This brought to an end, the special status of the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
In addition to revocation of Article 370, Jammu and Kashmir was bifurcated and reorganised as two Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
