    Rajinikanth on Article 370: The way they planned the entire issue, it was a master strategy. First they imposed section 144 and ensured that people don't create any trouble. Then they tabled the bill, first in Rajya Sabha where they don't have majority and then got it passed in Lok Sabha.

    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.
