If ten parties are ganging up against BJP, this means BJP is stronger, says Rajinikanth

Rajinikanth was giving clarification on media reports which quoted him as saying BJP is dangerous. He clarified that he was misquoted.

Superstar Rajinikanth has made a significant comment on BJP ahead of Lok Sabha elections. He has said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is much stronger compared to other political leaders in the country. After he entered politics, there was lots of speculation on whether he will be joining any political alliance. In that context, this comment carries a lot of significance.

Rajinikanth said this while clarifying on a comment he made yesterday. Some media houses had quoted him as saying “if parties here believe BJP is dangerous, then it must be”. He was answering a question about the opposition’s claim that BJP is dangerous.

Rajinikanth had also said yesterday that demonetisation was not implemented properly. He said, “The implementation went wrong, it should have been carried out after a detailed research.” Both his comments had raised speculation whether he is trying to move to the opposition camp.

But today the movie star turned politician has said that he was misquoted by media. Clarifying his statement yesterday, Rajinikanth said that he was not ready to give an opinion on BJP at this moment. But he said, if ten parties are ganging up against one single party, then imagine who is powerful among them. He wanted to mean that BJP is a much stronger party compared to other parties, and his earlier statement was misinterpreted by media.

Rajinikanth is considered to be close to BJP. According to some media reports, he had held several meetings with senior BJP leaders in Delhi in September this year. It is reported that he held around seven meetings with BJP top leaders within a period of five days. This had increased the possibility of Thalaiva joining hands with BJP.

But yesterday’s comments had cast a shadow of doubt over those speculations, as the comments were seen as anti-BJP. However, today’s clarification by Rajini means that he is still closer to BJP, and the possibility of allying with the party remains alive.
