TOP star Rajinikanth on Monday announced disbanding the Rajini Makkal Mandram, launched for his political entry and reiterated that he has no intention of involving himself in politics in future. Hours after he flagged questions among fans and Mandram functionaries as to “whether or not I am going to come to politics in future,” the actor, following discussions with office-bearers said he would not join politics.
Due to circumstances, “what we thought did not materialise,” he said apparently referring to his previously proposed political entry which he subsequently dropped. “I have no intention of involving myself in politics in future,” he asserted in a statement. Hence the RMM is disbanded and the functionaries would as before work under the Rajinikanth Fans Forum, he said.
After he announced last year that he would not take the political plunge, it was his duty to clarify on the status of the Mandram which was created as a precursor body to facilitate the launch of a political party, he added. The fans forum, an apolitical welfare body, was converted into RMM and this new outfit was launched in 2018. Office-bearers were appointed in both districts and at the State-level while separate wings were also formed to support the launch of political party.
