It’s said there are no permanent friends or enemies in politics. The Congress proved this age old adage as it attacked none other than Amitab Bachchan.
Modi government is celebrating 2 years of coming to power and Amitabh Bachchan has been invited to host a small segment. The Congress party has questioned the NDA government’s move as Amitabh’s name had recently figured in the Panama list and the actor is being investigated.
Amitabh was once a close friend of the Gandhi family. He had even contested on the Congress ticket. But later when Rajiv got embroiled in the Bofors scandal, Amitabh chose to move away from politics. And 3 decades later Amitabh seems to be once bitten twice shy.
So while he responded to Congress allegations, it was more of a clarification despite support from all quarters. But the BJP is convinced Congress has totally lost the plot by attacking Amitabh Bachchan. Here’s a report.
