Superstar Rajinikanth, less than a week after proposing three ideas for a ‘complete political change’ in Tamil Nadu, said on Tuesday evening that there will be a ‘tsunami’ in his favour closer to next Assembly elections.
Speaking at the first anniversary function of journalist Rangaraj Pandey’s channel Chanakya, he said emergence of AIADMK founder M G Ramachandran and Jayalalithaa was due to a ‘wave’ among the people.
Rajinikanth, who honoured veteran leaders like Congress’ Kumari Ananthan and BJP’s L Ganesan at the event, the superstar said that MGR’s emergence as a leader was due to sympathy he gained after being expelled from the DMK and Jayalalithaa gained from Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination.
He added: “I too threw a drop into the ocean (people) and it is slowly gaining momentum. As elections come closer, there will be a wave…a tsunami. Myself and my fans will make it happen. It is also in the hands of the people.”
The three ideas proposed by Rajinikanth include allocating 60 per cent of seats to youngsters and scholars; abolishing of majority party posts after polls and appointing a compassionate and taleneted youth as Chief Minister.
