Rajinikanth keeps guessing game on over his political plunge

'Rajinikanth had stated during his meet with fans in Chennai that late political commentator Cho Ramasamy once told him that Stalin was an efficient administrator if given a free hand.

The actor rued that despite the presence of "efficient" politicians like M K stalin and Anbumani Ramadoss, the "system is affected" and that the people's "thought process" on politics and democracy has to be changed.

"The system is rotten".

On the issue of many of his critics pointing out his "non-Tamil" origin, Rajinikanth said his native place was a village in Krishnagiri district in Tamil Nadu. I have some responsibilities and you have your jobs. "If you throw me out of this state, I'll go fall in Himalayas and not anywhere else", said the actor. "But when the war comes, let us encounter it. God is there!" said Rajinikanth to his fans. With their support, Tamil people have made me one of their own. I have spent 44 years in Tamil Nadu.

However, Rajnikanth has neither confirmed his joining to any Indian political party nor has he turned down the invitation of BJP. Whether he will or not join politics still remains anonymous for his fans.

While posters asking Rajinikanth to join politics have sprang up in some of the prominent areas in Chennai over the last few months, the actor on Friday said, "One can not grow without opposition; in politics opposition is essential".

He said Tamil Nadu politics has many great people like MK Stalin, who - taken individually - appear good, but the politics of the state taken as a whole is in a poor condition. "When the war comes we shall see". "And I desire that these gods who have given me this good life, must also prosper well", said the star, indicating that the time has now come for him to repay the Tamils' generous love by "serving" them. "The system is corrupted, we should bring the change", said Rajinikanth.

His faction's leader and a former minister K.P Munuswamy said it was natural for Rajinikanth to talk about politics because there was now a vacuum caused by the death of Jayalalithaa and ill health of Karunanidhi. He had also praised Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) chief Thol Thirumavalavan and Naam Tamizhar Katchi leader Seeman.
