Superstar Rajinikanth announces entry into politics
South superstar Rajinikanth finally announced his entry into politics on Sunday during the fans meet.

The actor, while addressing his fans on the 6th day of the meet, said, "I will contest in all 234 constituencies in Tamil Nadu in the upcoming State election."

However, the actor also declared that he would not be contesting in the local body elections.

Rajinikanth further said, "In the name of democracy, people are looting people. If I do not enter now, it will not sit with my conscience till I die. My way of politics will not be cash or caste based. It will be spiritual."

"I cannot do this alone. I would need the support of God and people. I hope I'll have both," the actor added.

Rajinikanth said that his decision was the need of the hour and that he would form his own party before the upcoming elections. Pointing out that politics in Tamil had hit a new low over the last year, Rajinikath said, 'It is time for political change. We should change the system. We want and honest and caste-less politics."

The superstar greeted his fans outside Raghvendra Mandapam after announcing his entry into politics.

The superstar further went on to say, "We will tell people that if we cannot deliver what we promised and we will resign in three years otherwise."

Good wishes have poured in for the actor congratulating him on his decision. Actors Anupam Kher and Kamal Hassan were the first ones to wish the actor on Twitter.



Kamal Hassan tweeted, "I greet Rajini's social concern and political debut. Welcome welcome."
