BJP has 'appropriate position' for Rajinikanth, says Nitin Gadkari

BJP has 'appropriate position' for Rajinikanth, says Nitin Gadkari

The group said "Kannadiga Rajini" should stay away from Tamil politics. These days his every word is being scrutinised for clues whether the 66-year-old will indeed join politics and which political party he may ally with. His May 19 speech was replete with hints of political ambition while the superstar met with his fans after a long time.

Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari said he has very good relations with Rajinikanth.

The protest comes even after Rajinikanth had said that he "may have come here (Tamil Nadu) as a Kannadiga or Marathi from Karnataka but you gave me love, support, name, fame and prosperity and you have made me a Tamil".

Although Rajinikanth has been keeping the people guessing on his political plunge, his last week's appeal to his fans to "prepare for a war" has made clear of his political intentions. On the final day of consultations with fans last week, Rajini teared into detractors about his political entry in TN and strikingly claimed "I am a Pakka Tamilian".

Manchester boxing hero Ricky Hatton said he was "proud" of the way his city had rallied around in the wake of the attack. The game actually saw a lot of patterns from the whole season, that it had so come to define and decide.

Chennai: Activists of a Tamil fringe group on Monday (May 22) staged protests near actor Rajinikanth's residence at Poes Garden in Chennai over indications that the veteran actor could make his political debut. The outfit believes that Rajinikanth, being a Kannadiga, can not become a leader in Tamil Nadu. "I lived in Karnataka for 23 years and in Tamil Nadu for 43 years".

Chennai: Kollywood Stylemannan Rajinikanth's political entry has been hit by a massive controversy even before it could take off.

Speaking to a news channel in Delhi, Amit Shah, who is believed to have scripted BJP's electoral wins in Assembly elections earlier this year, said, "Our doors are open for actor Rajinikanth". "I am a pure Tamil now", he told his fans. Legendary late NT Rama Rao strode film industry and politics like a colossus.
