“I am not a fool”, said superstar Rajinikanth on Tuesday, a day after some sections of the media quoted him as saying that he was unaware of the seven convicts in the former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi assassination case.
At a press meet in front of his Poes Garden residence in Chennai, he also clarified his stands on prime minister Narendra Modi, BJP and Vijay-starrer ‘Sarkar’.
On Monday, his response to whether the BJP is such a “dangerous party” that certain political parties are working towards forming an anti-BJP alliance had left reporters confused. “They are thinking so… so it must be so,” the superstar had said at the airport.
And on Tuesday, he clarified that he had meant “opposition parties believe BJP is dangerous, not him”. “People will decide if BJP is a dangerous party,” he added.
Asked about the national grand alliance by various parties to counter the BJP, he said “when 10 persons align against one, it’s for you to decide who is stronger”.
Clarifying on his remarks about Rajiv convicts’ release, Rajini said the question that was asked about seven people without identifying them. “So I asked which seven people. The question was not explicitly clear. I am not a fool, I know them and spoke to Perarivalan when he was out on parole.” He also wanted their release.
