Rajinikanth to launch political party in January, formal announcement on Dec 31

Actor Rajnikanth will not be entering politics due to health reasons

Putting an end to speculation, superstar Rajinikanth on Thursday said he will launch his political party in January 2021, and the formal announcement regarding the same will be made on December 31.

Rajinikanth made the announcement a day after he met senior office bearers of his forum, the Rajini Makkal Mandram. In a tweet, Rajinikanth said that further details of his political party will be announced on December 31, as he promised to bring about an “honest, spiritual government”, hinting towards a “miracle”. Rajinikanth said, “We will surely win assembly polls and give an honest, transparent, corruption-free, and spiritual politics. A wonder and miracle will definitely happen.” Rajini had met his district secretaries of RMM on Monday and had said he will make an announcement on the same soon while talking to the people. Rajini had called his line of politics spiritual, which was beyond religion, corruption and one for the welfare of the people.

Rajini had asked his supporters to go to every street in the state and pass the message about his intentions and he had told them then, “when the time is right I will give the war cry and at that time all of you be ready to support me.” After meeting the district secretaries of the Rajini Makkal Mandram at the actor’s Raghavendra Kalyana Mandapam in the city, he said “District office bearers expressed their opinions. They have said they will agree to whatever decision I take. I will announce my decision as soon as possible.” Rajnikanth announced last month his entry into politics may be delayed due to his health. He had made the announcement about him entering politics on Dec 31 in 2017.
