Actor Rajinikanth today said he will announce his final decision about floating a political party soon.
Sources said that the district secretaries of Rajini Makkal Mandram, who met actor Rajinikanth this morning at the latter’s Raghavendra Marriage Hall in Chennai to express their views on the future course of action, urged him to launch his political party soon. They also wanted him to be the CM candidate of the party and not to name anyone else, unlike the actor had hinted earlier.
The cadres are positive that the actor will announce his decision either today evening or tomorrow morning.
“RMM functionaries have agreed to abide by whatever decision I take. I will take my decision and announce it as soon as possible,” Rajinikanth told reporters outside his Poes Garden residence, after returning from his meeting at his Raghavendra marriage hall.
A large crowd had gathered in front of the marriage hall at Kodambakkam since Monday morning. Eager fans, wearing RMM badges, were gleefully expressed their views to television news channels. They hoped that Rajinikanth would surely take the political plunge and launch his own party soon.
