Chennai: People who are waiting with bated breath for last twenty-one years about Rajini Sir’s entry in to politics at last received some ‘concrete’ news to cheer about.
It will not be a decisive call Rajini Sir would take on Dec 31st about entering politics as few mainstream media houses are speculating about. On Dec 31st Rajini Sir would give the next date on which he will talk about Politics.
“It is definitely better than the stand he has been taking till now. For a change, he has given a date to tell about the next date”, said S. Thirumurugan, senior editor of a Chennai based newspaper.
“Earlier if Rajini Sir visited some politician’s family functions or someone at hospital, there would be huge speculation. Similarly, if PM Modi or for that matter any one from BJP or other parties visited him that would create ripples across Chennai about Thalaiva joining Politics”, said Mr. Thirumurugan
Mr. Thirumurugan added, “To be fair to him, Rajinikanth has never kept the suspense. For past twenty-one years he has been studying and strategizing looking at the political landscape of Tamil Nadu. If he needs some more time what’s wrong with it”.
“Like he said last month, there is ample time to enter politics. ‘God Willing’, he will enter one day. Especially these media people need to have some patience as he has told multiple times in the past, it’s not the people, it’s the media which is more interested to know about his Political plans,” said Mr. Thirumurugan who has been keenly following TN politics from MGR’s time.
Dhinakaran’s supporters are most upset after Rajini Sir’s name again cropping up. “Dhinakaran sir has spent lot of his resources to tame OPS+EPS faction to become true heir of Madam Jayalalithaa by winning RK Nagar seat. We just hope media people give him some respect by keeping him in news till Dec 31st at least”, said a close aid of Dhinakaran.
