District secretaries who joined other parties will remain Rajinikanth fans: RMM statement

CHENNAI: Even as scores of Rajinikanth fans criticised the three district secretaries of the Rajini Makkal Mandram (RMM) who joined the DMK on Sunday and termed them ‘betrayers’ of Rajini, RMM functionary VM Sudhakar on Monday defended the trio, saying they remain fans of the actor. His statement came in the backdrop of various social media posts against them during the last two days after they joined the DMK.

In a press statement, VM Sudhakar on Monday said that if members of RMM want to join any political party, they are free to do so after resigning from posts they hold. He added that the members of RMM shouldn’t forget that they will remain the fans of the actor despite their political lineages – an indirect request to all Rajini fans to quit criticising the three for their political activities.

It may be recalled that a small section of fans from Madurai and Thiruvallur districts had joined BJP and AIADMK respectively after the actor announced on December 29 that he wouldn’t enter politics due to prevailing pandemic.
