MK Stalin implicitly mocks Rajini, Kamal

DMK working president M K Stalin on Tuesday took a veiled dig at popular actors Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth on their political aspirations, saying new birds want to fly and it remained to be seen how much distance they can cover on their strength.

Amid reports that the DMK is not for the political entry of top stars Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan, Stalin said democracy is a sky for all.

He branded his DMK as “high-flying” and one that was always “concerned” about the people of the state.

“Aware of the political atmosphere, new birds want to fly. Democracy is a sky (common) for all. The political arena is watching how much distance a bird can fly on the strength of its wings,” he said.

Also, Stalin has called upon Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami to immediately rollback the hike in bus fare, saying it affected all sections of the society.

He dismissed as mere excuse the government’s defence that the increase was effected due to a host of factors including rise in fuel price, maintenance cost, salaries and pension and purchase of new buses to increase efficiency.
