"Forgive Me", Rajinikanth apologises for not launching political party
Superstar Rajinikanth has announced that he will not be starting his political party and that his recent health scare is a warning from God.
On Tuesday, Rajinikanth posted a tweet saying he doesn’t want to make the people who believe in him feel like a scapegoat, however, his recent health conditions have come as a warning.
Rajinikanth has said that he takes the recent development over his health condition as a warning from God and he will not go ahead with his plans to take the political plunge for the 2021 Tamil Nadu election.
Rajinikanth further said, "I see this as a warning given to me by the Lord. If I campaigned only through the media and social media after I started the party, I would not be able to create the political upheaval among people and win big in the elections. No one with political experience will deny this reality."
"With extreme sadness, I say that I can't enter politics. I alone know the pain I went through while announcing this decision. This decision of mine will disappoint my fans and people but please forgive me. I will serve the people without entering electoral politics."
The major announcement by Rajinikanth comes two days after his discharge from a hospital in Hyderabad where he was undergoing treatment after suffering from high blood pressure. Rajinikanth underwent treatment for three days before he returned to his Chennai residence.
He was told to be in complete bed rest with regular monitoring of his blood pressures “in view of his post-transplant status, labile hypertension and age,” Apollo Hospitals, Hyderabad, said a statement. He has also been counselled to avoid any activity that increases the risk of contracting Covid-19, the hospital added.
Doctors had advised the actor against a hectic lifestyle since he underwent a kidney transplant in 2016, but earlier this month, he said that though there were health concerns, he was ready to sacrifice his life for the people of Tamil Nadu and made two appointments for his party.
