Superstar Rajinikanth made it clear that he is not going to start his political party. He further added that his recent health scare is a warning from God. He took to his Twitter and posted a tweet. Here is the tweet from Rajinikanth.

This news has disappointed the fans of Thalaiva. It appears that Rajini has shelved the plans to float a political outfit following his recent health problems.

It may be recalled that only a few days ago, on his birthday, Rajinikanth had stated that he would be announcing the name and symbol of his political party on December 31. Fans were keen to hear the details, however, after suffering a setback in his healh recently, Rajini is said to have taken the decision not to contest the upcoming elections in Tamil Nadu in 2021.

Rajinikanth was rushed to the Apollo Hospitals in Jubilee Hills, Hyderabad from the movie sets where he was shooting for his upcoming movie Annaatthe. Doctors said his BP levels were high and after a few days of treatment; doctors advised him a week's bed rest and asked him not to indulge in activities which could strain him mentally.

The decision of Rajini to not float any party right now seems to have been a result of his health concern.

Heartfelt greetings to my beloved people of Tamil Nadu,

After announcing that my political party will start in January, I went to attend the shooting of ‘Annaatthe’ in Hyderabad despite the advice of doctors. The Film Unit consisted around 120 people who daily underwent Covid Tests, isolated themselves from each other, wore face masks & shields and much more. In Spite of the various precautionary measures taken, 4 people from the crew came in contact with the virus. The shooting was immediately called off by the Director & everyone present there were tested, including me.

My test results were negative, but my blood pressure was not stable and constantly fluctuating. As per my medical conditions, I should not have constant fluctuations in blood pressure, as it would severely affect my transplanted kidney. Therefore, under the supervision & advice of my doctors, I was hospitalized for three days.

I consider this as a warning given to me by the Lord.

Let’s see.

After I started the party, the political governance I am aiming for, cannot be granted merely through campaigns done in Press & Social Media platforms alone. No one with political experience will deny the fact. I will have to meet people, attend meetings and go on campaigns that would hamper my health.

When Corona exposure took place in a group of 120 people, I was hospitalized for three days and had to be under surveillance. Now, this Corona Virus has transformed and a second wave is coming in a new form. Though Covid Vaccines may be available, I have been taking Immuno Suppressants to maintain good health, due to which I may get unwell during the course of attending meetings & election campaigns. Then, people who trust me and travel along in this political journey would be both mentally and financially affected.

Even if my health is at stake, I will definitely go ahead with my political journey. I do not wish to disappoint the people who joined the party and held their support to it.

To the members of Rajini Makkal Mandram, fans and people who were expecting me to start a political party, I did not intend to disappoint you. Kindly forgive me.

For the last 3 years, the party and its members have be following my instructions sincerely. Even during the Corona Lockdown, you went ahead to help people in need, following all safety precautions and consistently served the people. Your good deeds will definitely come back to you and your family.

When I met you for the last time on November 30th, you all had only one concern in your mind, “Your health is the most important thing for us and whatever decision you will take, we will stand by you”. These words are etched in my heart forever and I am forever indebted for the love and affection you have showered upon me. ‘Rajini Makkal Mandram’ will function as always.

My heartfelt thanks to Mr. Tamilaruvi Maniyan for being supportive and concerned about my health for the past 3 years and writing about the same inspite of facing criticism. I am grateful to the esteemed Mr. Arjuna Moorthy, who resigned his post from a reputed political party and joined forces with mine. Without contesting for the elections this year, I will do whatever it takes to help the people with their needs.
