Rajinikanth Says,"Pm Modi Is As Charismatic As Jawaharlal Nehru And Rajiv Gandhi"
South mega-star Rajinikanth today confirmed that he would attend Narendra Modi
Since his announcement last year that he would join politics, Rajinikanth is yet to announce his political party, unlike Kamal Haasan, whose Makkal Needhi Maiam contest the election. He has said that his party will contest all 234 seats in the next Tamil Nadu assembly polls due in 2021.
The 68-year-old filmstar has usually sent out mixed signals on his political preferences.
Rajinikanth had tacitly remarked before the elections that PM Modi was "stronger" than 10 persons fighting against him.
"When 10 persons go against one person, who is stronger? Those 10, or the persons they are aligning against. If 10 persons declare a war against one man, who is stronger," he had said on the possibility of a mega opposition alliance against PM Modi.
Rajinikanth also welcomed Union Minister Nitin Gadkari's plans to link River Godavari and River Cauvery. Rajini said, "I appreciate the thought of union minister Nitin Gadkri on interlinking the Krishna, Godvari and Cauvery despite Tamil Nadu not voting for NDA".
Though initially in 2016 Rajinikanth welcomed demonetisation, but later turned critical saying it wasn't implemented well.
