Tamil Nadu: Rajinikanth meets followers today, will hear their ‘voice’ on party rollout

CHENNAI: Actor Rajinikanth has kept alive the suspense over his political entry, convening a meeting of Rajini Makkal Mandram (RMM) office bearers on Monday.

Sources close to the actor said he would elicit views of RMM functionaries about his political foray against the backdrop of his health and the prevailing Covid-19 pandemic.

“Rajinikanth will be present at the venue,” said a person in constant touch with the actor. “This will be his first public appearance after the pandemic set in leading to lockdowns since late March this year.” There has been talk about his meeting with Amit Shah when the Union home minister visited the city last weekend, but that never happened.

Sources said Rajini would briefly address the functionaries on Monday to explain the state of his health, the caution from his doctors against his making public appearances under the cloud of Covid pandemic and his earlier promise to them about entering politics in time for the assembly election in Tamil Nadu slated for April-end. “Thalaivar is keen to listen to the views of RMM district secretaries on his future course of action. In a way, he will be placing the onus on RMM functionaries to show him the way,” a source said.
