BJP dubs Rajinikant ‘coward’ while Congress backs him

New Delhi [India], Mar.25 : Hitting out at Rajinikanth, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday dubbed the former as a 'coward' for cancelling his proposed visit to Sri Lanka while Congress backed the actor.

"It's typical of the cinema stars they have no bones. All their courage is in cinema but in outside world they are cowards," BJP leader Subramaniam Swamy told ANI.

He further said that cancelling the visit shows utter cowardness of the Tamil superstar. "This is Rajnikanth in real life. His fans should know that they idealise the one whom they see in reel life," he added. Swamy further said that Sri Lanka is a friendly country in India and the government has spent a lot of money building houses there.

Meanwhile, Congress leader P.C. Chako stated that it Rajinikanth's personal decision of cancelling his trip to Sri Lanka which has no relevance with political affair.
