Superstar Rajinikanth's political entry is on cards for a long time. The actor has also announced that he will be taking part in active politics ahead of the 2021 Tamil Nadu Assembly elections. Generally, Rajini tries to be diplomatic in his political statements, just to not hurt anyone's sentiments. But for the first time, he spoke out and criticized DMK and Dravidar Vidhuthalai Kazhagam (DVK) recently at the 50th anniversary event of Tughlak magazine.
Speaking about the co-founder of Tughlak, Cho Ramaswamy, Rajini said that Cho is the only person who covered the event that happened in Salem in 1971, where DVK's head Periyar took out a rally by holding the naked posters of Lord Rama and Sita which also had footwear garlands. Rajini also added that Cho condemned the act in his article. The Basha actor recalled that the Karunanidhi led DMK government, which was in power at that time, tired to snub this article as fake news but Cho bravely published with all the facts.
Hurt with the statements of Rajini, members of DVK filed a case on him. Reacting to it, Rajinikanth arranged a press meet today and clarified that he will not apologize or take back his statements. The actor added that whatever he said was there in the reports and he didn't makeup anything. This is the first time Rajini took a firm stand on a political statement and the public is appreciating him for that. ​
