06 March, 2018
Superstar Rajinikanth on Monday unveiled a statue of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MG Ramachandran at the Dr MGR Educational and Research Institute in Chennai. Speaking at the function, Rajinikanth declared that he is entering politics only to fill a leadership vacuum in the state. 

“Yes, Tamil Nadu faces a leadership vacuum, Yes, I am entering politics to fill that vacuum,” Rajinikanth said, eliciting rousing applause from an elated crowd in Chennai.

Rajinikanth, who is yet to formally launch his political party, said he was confident of giving a good administration like AIADMK founder and late Chief Minister M.G. Ramachandran (MGR).

In his first political remarks since he announced he will enter politics, Rajinikanth, said, "If someone says he will be (like) MGR, he will only be a crazy man. However, in view of the current political vacuum, I am confident I will be able to give a good administration and spiritual governance. I know the political journey is not easy. It is a journey through struggles and hurdles."

The actor also said, "The present government and politicians are asking why are actors leaving their makeup and coming to take over their jobs as politicians. I am 67 years now, since you are not doing your duty I am stepping in."

He said he has learnt politics from DMK leader M. Karunanidhi and Congress leader late G.K. Moopanar.
