Superstar Rajinikanth, who is a man of the masses, opted out of political plans last month due to ill health. This decision by Rajinikanth created a lot of ruckus among his fans, who were eagerly waiting for his political entry in Tamil Nadu. The fans have also been protesting against his decision.
After Rajinikanth announced his decision to drop out from politics, fans organised a protest urging him to withdraw the decision and get back into politics. Today, the actor issued a statement and appealed to his fans to stop pressuring him to re enter politics. The statement issued by Rajinikanth said, “I have explained reasons for my inability (to enter politics) in detail. I have conveyed my decision. Please don’t pain me again and again asking me to enter politics by organising such events. Thank you for holding the event in a disciplined and dignified way (sic.)”
Rajinikanth was all set to announce the launch date of his new political party on December 31, 2020. However, Rajinikanth fell ill while shooting for his film Annaatthe, and after two days of being hospitalised for severe blood pressure fluctuations, he decided to not join politics. Rajnikanth said on the advice of his physicians he came to a decision and also sees his health complication as a warning given to him by god.
