Soon after a group of his fans joined the BJP, Ajith Kumar came out with a statement on Monday night, stating that he did not have political ambitions.
“My participation in politics is restricted to standing in line during elections to vote. I will never ask my fans to support a particular political party or urge them to vote for a particular political party. I will not do so in future as well,” Ajith, hailed as ‘thala’, said.
He added: “I have my own likes and dislikes when it comes to politics. I have neither imposed my political views on anyone nor have I allowed anyone to impose theirs on mine. I have never liked my photographs or name to be associated with any political event.”
I do not support those who criticise other actors and critics in a derogatory manner on social media. Because the world does not forgive such acts, he said.
Ajith concluded his statement by saying: “My sincere request to my fans is for students to concentrate on their studies, for working people to fulfil their responsibilities, to respect law and order, to focus on health, to live in harmony and to show respect to humankind unconditionally. This would be the biggest respect and appreciation my fans can show me. Live and let live.”
