Tamil superstar Rajnikanth alias Shivaji Rao Gaekwad is all set to launch his political party. Sources from his outfit Rajini Makkal Mandram confirmed that the party will be launched in April.
Although the name of the party is yet to be known, top heads of Rajini Makkal Mandram claim that the launch could be anywhere around April 14th, 2020.
It may be mentioned that the Assembly elections in Tamil Nadu are scheduled to be held in 2021.
It is believed that Rajinikanth has close aides with the BJP and the party will help the actor “run the show” but there is no confirmation if the actor will have an alliance with the BJP considering their main motive will be to defeat the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam(DMK).
A close aide of Rajnikanth, Tamilaruvi Manian said that Pattali Makkal Katchi(PMK) an ally of NDA in Tamil Nadu is likely to forge an alliance with his new party. Manian is believed to play the role of a mentor in his political career.
Earlier this month, the actor was seen backing BJP’s controversial Citizenship Amendment Act(CAA). He said that the act will not affect the Muslims community in any way and that political leaders are misleading the youth on the law.
