For the first time, the DMK’s mouth piece Murasoli attacked superstar Rajinikanth, poised to enter politics, as being a hostage of “some persons”.
The latest edition of the DMK journal lashed out at Rajinikanth for aspiring to become the chief minister after being an actor for 40 years but not wanting his fans of 40 years to be aspiring for similar positions in government and politics.
Rajinikanth had on Tuesday stated that he was committed to usher in a change in politics and take it away from the trappings of money and lure of posts. The DMK mouthpiece used an “innocent fan” asking questions from his idol Rajinikanth and dubbed him as a person being supported by some communal forces.
The “innocent fan” wanted to know why Rajinikanth could not launch a party like Periyar and strive to achieve his ideas.
Asking more questions, the magazine said if the superstar was not after posts, as claimed by him, why then he had announced fighting elections from all 234 assembly constituencies. He could rather have formed a party and worked for the betterment of people, like rationalist EV Ramasamy Periyar.
On Friday, Rajinikanth said "no force" could separate him from his fans and urged his followers to tread the path of fairness.
"I am proud to get fans like you. No force can separate us from each other. Whichever path we may take, let it be one of fairness," Rajinikanth said in a statement.
