Rajini manram member to contest as independent

Trichy: Karur district secretary of Rajni Makkal Manram (RMM) T P Bhagavan Parameswaran will contest the assembly election as an independent from Karur assembly segment. A key member of the Manram and part of the disciplinary committee, Parameswaran wants to work for the upliftment of farmers and weavers in his region and for making Karur a textile hub.
Had Rajnikanth gone ahead with his political aspirations, Bhagavan Parameswaran would have played a key role in the party. A home textile businessman from Karur, Parameswaran has always remained low profile when it comes to fan club activities by providing outside support. He was noticed by his onscreen icon who was quick to give him a key position when he started Rajni Makkal Manram.
Parameswaran hit the limelight when he brought a group of priests from Palani and conducted a grand prayer for the well-being of actor Rajnikanth in 2011. The actor was hospitalised in Singapore for kidney related ailments. He is known for erecting giant banners across the town whenever a movie of the superstar releases.
Parameswaran is now contesting from the Karur assembly segment as an independent after Rajnikanth shelved the idea of entering politics over ill-health. “I will not use the name of my icon or the manram during my campaign, but my identity as his fan would certainly increase my winning prospects,” he said.
