Superstar Rajinikanth on Tuesday virtually backed Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying he was ‘stronger’ than ’10 persons’ aligning against him.
The remarks gain significance in the wake of opposition parties looking at a mega coalition against the Modi government for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
“When 10 persons go against one person, who is stronger? If 10 persons declare a war against one man, who is stronger,” he told reporters here when asked about the possibility of an alliance by opposition parties.
Rajinikanth had on Monday said that “they (opposition parties) feel that way, then it should be definitely like that,” while responding to a question whether the BJP was such a ‘dangerous’ party electorally, that warranted formation of national alliance against it.
Asked if he would align with the BJP, Rajni said it will be decided later.
The actor has already announced he will take the political plunge and contest from all 234 seats in the next Assembly elections, originally due in 2021. He is yet to launch his party.
