Prime News, National, New Delhi, May 22:- Coming down heavily on Tamil superstar Rajinikanth’s supposed entry into the political arena, Bharatiya Janata Party ( BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Monday said the current situation of politics in Tamil Nadu does not demand ‘uneducated’ candidates.
“Rajinikanth does not fit into the current political situation in Tamil Nadu. He has no idea about the Constitution, fundamental rights or any such matter. It is better he sticks to cinema, since he can deliver dialogues well and entertain people,” Swamy said.
Taking this notion further, Swamy vehemently opposed the entry of cinema stars on the whole into politics, adding that the existing faces have hindered the development of the state.
“Entry of stars has ruined what Kamaraj did for Tamil Nadu and abolished the foundation on which it was built. I strongly disagree with the idea of the film fraternity entering politics,” said Swamy.
Lashing out at the media for reports on him joining a particular political party, Swamy dismissed these claims that no official intimation has been received with regards to the ‘Thalaiva’ joining any party.
Earlier in the day, the Tamilar Munnetra Padai, a pro-Tamil group staged a protest against Rajinikanth’s possible entry into politics earlier today, stating that he was a Kannadiga.
They launched a protest outside his residence, following which security carted them away, as they shouted slogans against him.
The protestors claimed that Tamil Nadu should be ruled only by the Tamils and being a Kannadiga, Rajinikanth should not come into the state politics.
