Rajinikanth may launch a political party!

Nearly 10 months after actor Rajinikanth declared his intention to take the political plunge, members of the Rajini Makkal Mandram have been informally asked to gear up for the likely launch of his political party on December 12 — his birthday. The message has been passed on by word of mouth after a week-long consultative meeting of the district units of the Mandram, held between October 5 and 11. However, there has been no official word from the actor.

Sources in the Rajini Makkal Mandram said they were looking at mobilising at least 10 lakh members for the event. During last week’s consultation, district secretaries were informally asked about the number of people they could mobilise for the party’s launch. The venue could be Tiruchi.

“We were asked details like how many members we would be able to mobilise and the number of cars that would come from our district. We were told that there might be an ‘event,’” said a Chennai-based district secretary.

Mr. Rajinikanth announced his political entry on December 31 last year and had initiated the streamlining of his formal and informal fan clubs, integrating them into the Rajini Makkal Mandram. Since then, the Mandram has been focussing on enrolling new members.

However, certain comments made by Mr. Rajinikanth on the anti-Sterlite protests and the subsequent police firing — he had said Tamil Nadu would become a graveyard if people were to protest over everything — and his decision to act in more films seem to have confused his fans and the public at large with regard to his strategy.
