The AIADMK strongly condemned actor Rajinikanth for his remark on the “system” in Tamil Nadu needing change. Party authorities lambasted at him for such generalised statement and termed it as unacceptable.

Senior AIADMK leader and Fisheries Minister D. Jayakumar said, “If there is a mistake please point it out, but making generalised remarks is not acceptable.”

On May 19 last year, Rajinikanth said, “Tamil Nadu has good leaders. The system, however, is rotten. Earlier this week he stressed on the need to correct the system first in Tamil Nadu. Jayakumar bashed at Rajinikanth saying,

“Is Mr Rajinikanth an engineer, as it was only they who talked about ‘systems’?  The actor should first work with the government to secure the rights of Tamil Nadu in securing Cauvery water from Karnataka.”

Fight for Cauvery

The Minister brought to attention the political-legal battle over Cauvery waters, pushed by late Chief Minister Jayalalithaa. He said that Tamil Nadu government was working to get the Cauvery waters. It would press further to secure the rights of the State farmers. The minister further slammed Karnataka for denying the release of Tamil Nadu’s share of water.

“I appeal to Rajinikanth, let him correct the system there [Karnataka] … if he takes efforts with us to secure our right of 205 tmc ft Cauvery water, it will be a good thing.”

In response to Rajinikanth being silent on the Cauvery issue, the Minister stated, “Yes for sure, he is not talking about it… let him clarify.”

He further asked Rajinikanth to not instigate or provoke the AIADMK in any way. The actor was dared to make a similar remark on “system” in terror-hit regions of the country. The minister also hit out at the actor for his “spiritual politics” slogan and asked clarification on what he meant by the slogan. Mr Rajinikanth defined “spiritual politics” as a politics surpassing any religion, caste or governance.

Rajinikanth has also faced the political fury for his entry as a person of non–Tamil origin.
