News from Chennai is that L.K. Advani, BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate, met with Rajnikanth at his Poes Garden house yesterday. And speculation is rife that this might signal Rajnikanth’s arasiyal pravesam.
My opinion is that Rajni should keep out of politics, even campaigning.
And that too, not for the BJP, which has proved during the past 4 years that it is out of touch with the common man, out of touch with India’s national interests, and is worse than the Congress. Bumbling on ideology, inconsistent on issues, and with a dangerous mindset that opposes the selfsame programmes under the Congress regime that the BJP proposed in the past, the BJP’s intellectual void is as glaring as its inability to forge and retain alliances.
Supporters of Rajni think that just because MGR was successful in politics, so will their thalaivar be. But they forget that MGR had a long association with politics. And he did not debut as a Chief Minister. Contrast this with Rajnikanth, whose situation is similar to that of the BJP above. He has had no single policy stance; he cannot articulate his positions clearly; he chooses his friends in politics based on his whims.
Meendum Rajini? What do you think?
