Not only did Rajinikanth promise to provide financial assistance of Rs 1 crore to the farmers but also claimed that he would talk to Prime Minister Narendra Modi about inter-linking of rivers.
"For sure Rajinikanth is coming into politics and he will be launching his own political party", Hindustan Times quoted Sampath as saying. Rajinikanth's meeting with HMK leaders comes amidst speculation that the Tamil superstar may be joining politics soon even though all eyes are on which party he would join if he does at all enter politics. "And that it was possible only if he enters politics." stated the leading actor.
A day after he met farmers, Tamil superstar Rajinikanth met members of Hindu Makkal Katchi.
Addressing media persons after meeting Rajinikanth at the latter's residence here, Arjun Sampath, said, " "Singam Singleaa Dhaan Varum" meaning the "Lion will come alone". But, the 66-year-old actor never confirmed the same. "Rajinikanth said the system is corrupt".
"It was just a courtesy visit by leaders of Hindu Makkal Katchi", explained Rajinikanth. When we insisted him to join politics, he said he is in preparation for the same. The meeting of Rajini with farmers hints about Rajini's entry in politics. He wants to change the system.
On Sunday, Kollywood Superstar Rajinikanth met a delegation of 16 farmers led by P. Ayyakannu at his Poes Garden residence in Chennai and assured them his support for their plea to interlink rivers.
He further said that if he entered politics, "I will be very truthful and will not work with people who are in this to make money". Interestingly, in 2002, Rajinikanth had famously offered 1 crore towards interlinking the Himalayan and peninsular rivers, after undertaking a fast on the Cauvery conflict.
