Rajini’s tweet enthuses fans

Chennai: Apparently putting to rest speculations that he would pull out from his decision to float a party, actor-politician Rajinikanth today took a step close to his full-fledged political journey by thanking the media, general public and fans for helping his message for a change in Tamilnadu politics to reach every nook and corner of the State.

In a Tamil tweet, Rajinikanth wrote, ”I thank the press, television channels, social media, web sites and my fans for taking my message for a change in politics ‘If not now, when?’ to nook and corner of the State”.

Addressing mediapersons a couple of days ago, Rajinikanth clarified that he never aspired to become the Chief Minister of Tamilnadu and said that he only wants a change in political system.

”If change in politics and government does not happen now, it will never happen”, he said. He also stated that his plans include different heads for his prospective party and a possible government headed by it. Rajinikanth said that he has plans to appoint as Chief Minister, an educated youth who was compassionate and has self-respect.

With a two-leadership system for party and the government, the former would act as an opposition to highlight issues and would not even hesitate to remove, apparently the head of the government, if it fails to perform, he said.

However it met with speculations from a few sections that he was planning to pull out his political plans. His remarks were trolled in social media and critics opined that he had tactically planned to stay away from active politics. At the same time, many welcomed his decision and hailed his bold moves.
