Republican Party of India (A) women wing president and Bollywood actress Rakhi Sawant has hailed the Central government’s decision to scrap Article 370 of the Constitution relating to Jammu and Kashmir and even described Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a ‘god’ for his bold decision for the unity and integrity of the country.
Accompanied by Union Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment and party’s president Ramdas Athawale, Rakhi Sawant, was in the Taj City to attend a private programme and held a press conference there on Thursday.
The minister remained tight-lipped during the press conference and all the questions of the media were answered by Rakhi Sawant.
Sawant said: “I am very happy on the decision to abolish Articles 370 and 35A. We are very proud of our Prime Minister Narendra Modi as now Kashmir has become ours.”
The actor-turned-politician even raised slogans of ‘Modi zindabad’.
She said the Modi government had given Muslim women much respite from the triple talaq and now the people of Kashmir would witness rapid development.
Rakhi Sawant also disclosed that she had been cast in the new Bollywood film ‘Dhara 370’ and thanked the director and producer for showing their faith on her.
