Rajini lauds govt, demands compensation for affected families

While appreciating the efforts for its efforts to curb the spread of coronavirus, superstar Rajinikanth today requested it to provide compensation to the families whose livelihood are affected by the outbreak of the pandemic.

“The precautionary efforts being taken by the government to stop the spread of coronavirus in Tamil Nadu are highly appreciable,” he said in a tweet.

Rajinikanth, in his Tamil tweet, said further: “We the people shall join with the government and cooperate to prevent the spread of the deadly virus.”

He added: “At this unfortunate situation, if the government provides financial relief to people whose basic livelihood is affected, it would be of a great help to them. This is my humble request.”

Rajinikanth plans to bring in a welcome change in Tamil Nadu politics and the ideas he proposed last week look encouraging and inspiring.

And on Tuesday evening, he said there will be a ‘tsunami’ of support in his favour closer to next Assembly elections. Speaking at Rangaraj Pandey’s Chanakya fnction, he said emergence of AIADMK founder M G Ramachandran and Jayalalithaa was due to a wave among the people.

He said that MGR’s emergence as a leader was due to sympathy he gained after being expelled from the DMK and Jayalalithaa gained from Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination.

“I too threw a drop into the ocean and it is slowly gaining momentum,” he said and added: “As elections come closer, there will be a wave…a tsunami.  My fans and myself would work on it. And it is also in the hands of the people.”

Last week, Rajinikanth declared that 50 per cent of the party candidates would be people below the age of 50 with sound educational qualifications and the remaining seats would be allocated to professionals and retired bureaucrats.
