Delhi: After BJP’s PM candidate Narendra Modi met Rajnikanth to seek his endorsement for the Prime Minister’s post, Rahul Gandhi – Congress’ Prime Ministerial candidate – has decided to seek the endorsement of a similarly qualified movie star.
However, since no superstar agreed to meet him on such short notice, Rahul had to settle for a relatively jobless movie actor, Kamal Rashid Khan, famous for his stints on Big Boss and the unintentionally funny “Deshdrohi” movies.
Apparently, Narendra Modi on Sunday evening met actor Rajnikanth at the latter’s residence in Chennai right after reaching the city. Seeking to react quickly to the move, the Congress High Command under pressure from Rahul, hurriedly set up a meeting with KRK with an eye on the all-important “secular” vote bank.
“Rahulji will soon be meeting KRK at his residence to seek his blessings,” Abhishek Manu Singhvi, Congress spokesperson said. “Had Mr. Modi cared about Muslims, he would have met some Khan too, instead of Rajnikanth. This proves that Congress is the only truly secular party.”
When asked what would Mr. Gandhi do on meeting KRK, Mr. Singhvi said, “Considering Mr. Khan is talking about which woman he will hit on next on his Twitter account all the time, I think they will discuss female empowerment.”
