Rajini Shows He Is Moving Closer To BJP

Tap to expand
Tamil superstar Rajinikanth is now the talk of the town in Tamil Nadu. After taking on Dravidian icon EV Ramaswamy Naicker, he has now come out openly in support of the Citizenship Amendment Act brought forth by Modi.  He said the opposition was trying to mislead the country on CAA, NRC and NPR.

This has let the cat among the pigeons in Tamil Nadu with the Opposition parties slamming the superstar. Former finance minister P Chidambaram termed Rajinikanth as being a puppet in the hands of the BJP. He said Rajini has taken it upon himself the 'communal' agenda of the BJP. He said he was disappointed by Rajini's comments. His son Karthi Chidambaram also criticised Rajini. The CPM also criticised Rajinikanth. CPM state secretary K Balakrishnan said that while Rajini was free to support whatever he wants, he should realise that the CAA was anti-Muslim.

On Wednesday, Rajini had said that CAA was not anti-Muslim and that he would be the first one to fight if there was any injustice to Muslims in the CAA.  The statement showed that Rajini is steadily moving towards the BJP in the poll-bound Tamil Nadu.
