Actor-politician Rajinikanth today announced that he won’t be entering politics due to his health reasons. This comes just a day after he was discharged from the hospital where he was admitted following the fluctuations in his blood pressure. Earlier this month, the superstar had announced that he will launch a political party in January 2021.

Rajinikanth had said that the announcement of his political party would be made on December 31. “We will work hard and register a victory,” he had said. This had come three years after he announced his entry into politics on December 31, 2017. He had confirmed his intention that he would contest the state assembly election due in 2021.

In his three-page statement, Rajinikanth today expressed fears for those accompanying him in his political journey and said that he did not want to make a victim of his supporters now. “Therefore, I inform with great regret I am unable to come to politics by floating a political party. Only I know the pain behind making this announcement,” the actor said.

At the time of announcing his entry in 2017, Rajinikanth had said that all was not well with the forces ruling Tamil Nadu. He had said that a complete overhaul was required in the governance system and that his party would do that. He also said that his party would quit if its promises were not fulfilled within three years of coming into power.
