After two-week long spiritual tour in the Himalayas, superstar Rajinikanth returned to Chennai on Tuesday afternoon.
Interacting with the media, he refuted reports that the Bharatiya Janata Party was operating him from behind in his political moves. “Not the BJP, but only the God and the people are behind me,” he said.
Asked about the Ram Rajya Rath Yatra that has entered Tamil Nadu on Tuesday, he said the state is secular and the government should provide security to it and prevent any communal flare up.
He also slammed the attack on Periyar EVR statue in Pudukottai district and said it was a barbaric act. He said his next course of political action will be taken after appointing district level office bearers for his Makkal Mandram party.
In December last year, Rajinikanth had announced he would launch a party and contest all 234 assembly constituencies in Tamil Nadu in the next assembly elections.
