DMK says Rajinikanth is a puppet in the hands of someone

The DMK has alleged that Superstar Rajinikanth is a puppet in the hands of "some people" and is being supported by "communal" elements.

The DMK's mouthpiece questioned the actor on his recent statement about Rajini Makkal Mandram (RMM), a pre-cursor forum to his political party. During his interaction with RMM members, the actor said that he was committed towards ushering change in the political corridors.

He also reiterated his stand that he will never allow those eyeing money and posts in his political innings, and said that it was not just a rhetoric.

Posing questions to Rajinikanth in the name of an "innocent fan" of the popular star, DMK mouthpiece 'Murasoli' asked if the actor was not really behind posts as claimed by him, he should have then started a movement on the lines of rationalist leader, the late E V Ramasamy Periyar.

"Dear leader, if your assertion that posts was not a consideration in your political entry, why did you announce that (the party) will contest from all (234 Assembly) seats in the next polls," said the party mouthpiece.

"Those who are speaking for you in the media are communal (elements); who want to divide the Tamil community which exists after transcending caste and religion," it said.

"We (fans) trusted you. But you have become a puppet of some persons and dancing to their tunes," it said and asked "who is the black sheep", referring to a popular dialogue by the actor in his film 'Enthiran.'
