"Those flouting rules will not be spared," said Rajinikanth. The actor is all set to turn politician full-time claiming that 90% work is done.
Chennai: It looks like Rajinikanth is setting the stage for members of the party (yet-to-be-announced), chalking out strategies and setting up stringent rules. 90% of the work is done, said Rajinikanth, when asked if he was ready to turn neta Rajini full-time.
And shades his political avatar are seen in some of the disciplinary action taken in the recent past. G Ravi, leader of Rajini Makkal Mandram (Rajini's fan club that will be made into a party soon) was thrown out of the association by the actor as he had allegedly flouted the rules of the Mandram. After expelling him, Rajinikanth advised his fans to sever all ties with Ravi and warned them of action if they kept in touch with him.
"All disciplinary action including removal of members from Rajini Makkal Mandram (Rajini's fan club that will be made into a party soon) are taken as per my approval,” he said. While clarifying that fans and people are very important in the party, he also warned against those not abiding by set rules
Speaking further, Rajini said, "Just the fact that one has been part of the Mandram for over thirty years, doesn’t make him eligible for plum posts." Action is taken when someone refuses to share responsibilities and posts with the common man, the superstar said.
Rajini also spoke of family values. He said that contributing to the Mandram or spending money for party activities has no meaning if the person is not taking care of his/her family. Spending huge amounts of money for the Mandram is not acceptable. Work can be done without spending money, he added.
Another condition laid by Rajinikanth is to stay away from gossip and rumours. Those who spread wrong information through media are not our fans/members, he clarified.
When such an action can be taken against the leader of the Mandram, it is speculated that harsher action will be in place when it comes to Rajinikanth's soon-to-be-launched political party.
