Dhaka, 31 Dec, Abnews: Tamil superstar Rajinikanth on Sunday announced his entry into politics, saying he was taking the plunge as politics and governance in Tamil Nandu had turned so bad that the state has become a laughing stock.
He said it was time to “change the government, change the system”.
Rajinikanth said his party will contest in all seats in the state assembly and look at Lok Sabha elections when the time comes. Rajinikanth said he knows it was not going to be easy, but it had to be done. “I did not have political ambitions when I was 45, so will I have it when I’m 68? I am not doing this for any post. I do not come for money or fame, as I have enough of it. But the politics has become so bad that rest of the world is laughing at us,” Rajinikanth said at a fans meet-and-greet in Chennai.
“I don’t want volunteers, I want guardians. I need guardians who don’t ask the help of any politician for any personal need. I don’t want party cadres. I want guardians who can fight for people’s rights. And I’m just a people’s representative, who will oversee this army of guardians. I need guardians who can question the government unconditionally,” the actor added while breaking the suspense over his plans. - Indian Express
