Day after he hints at delay in party launch, Rajini meets forum members
A day after hinting that there could be further delay in the launch of his political party, superstar Rajinikanth on Thursday held a 'constructive' meeting with the office-bearers of a forum named after him.
The 'Kaala' actor met the office-bearers of "Rajini Makkal Mandram" (RMM) (Rajini People's Forum) at his residence here, according to news agency PTI.
A terse tweet along with a couple of photographs put out by the actor described the meeting as 'constructive'.
PTI reported that the forum, formed after Rajinikanth's announcement in December last year that he will launch his own political party, is seen as a prelude to his formal entry into politics.
His contemporary Kamal Haasan has already launched his political party 'Makkal Needhi Maiam' with all eyes on Rajinikanth's next move.
Rajinikanth yesterday indicated there could be further delay in the launch of his political party, but assured that whenever he floats his own outfit, it would usher in 'good times' for Tamil Nadu and its people.
"I can understand...The media thinks why have I not come to the point and even the fans are thinking so. What to do, the date has not come yet," he had said yesterday at the aduio launch of his upcoming trilingual flick 'Kaala.'
"The date has not come yet.. The time will come and with the blessings of God, good times will come to Tamil Nadu and its people" when he floats his party, he had said.
While announcing his political intentions last year, Rajinikanth had said his party would contest the next state assembly elections from all 234 seats.
Later, in March this year he had said there was a leadership vaccum in the state and he was confident of giving a good administration like late AIADMK founder M G Ramachandran.
