Rajinikanth

Looking back, 2017 is the year of some of the biggest political turmoil. From UP elections to Gujarat elections and all the way down to RK Nagar by-polls, politics was the much talked about in this year. However, one development that still has people waiting is Superstar Rajinikanth’s political entry. Recently, Tamil film actors Kamal Haasan and Vishal too expressed their will to join politics. Kamal Haasan even indicated that his colour is “definitely not saffron”. His meet with Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan who belongs to CPM had everyone talking about his political inclination towards the left.

On the other hand, Rajinikanth’s political debut is still a suspense. Rajinikanth who will be busy for next six days in the meet and greet with his huge fan base, today finally addressed the elephant in the room. Talking to his fans, he said that he will announce his decision on December 31. “I am not new to politics. God willing, I will enter it. You will come to know about it on December 31,” he told his fans.

Talking about the fallouts he said, “I know that there are downsides and there are advantages of the decision. It is the downsides I am being cautious of.” However, in his usual vigour he exclaimed, “If you step on the battlefield, you have to win.” His statement was met with huge applause from the roaring fans.

Director Mahendran and Kalaignanam were also present at the event. Praising Rajini, director Mahendran said, “Rajinikanth is unpredictable. No one can gauge what he will do next. Only he knows it.” Concluding the meet and greet, Rajinikanth thanked his fans and said, “We will begin to work.”

All eyes are now fixed on December 31. The state of Tamilnadu is already witnessing a political instability due to the internal Power struggle in AIADMK factions and feeble DMK opposition. TTV Dhinakaran’s win on late J Jayalalitha’s seat also indicated towards a political shift. A. Raja and Kanimozhi’s acquittal in the 2G case will reap benefits for DMK or not is yet to be seen. In such a scenario, If Rajinikanth decides to jump on the battlefield; it will surely be a spectacular political contest.

New Delhi | The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) led Delhi government on Wednesday told the Supreme Court that the functioning of the state government is “completely paralysed” and it can’t order transfer or posting of officers despite the recent Constitution bench verdict on the administration of Delhi.

The bench of Justices AK Sikri and Navin Sinha said it knows everything and the matter will be taken on July 26 since it is not a regular bench.

Senior advocate P Chidambaram who was representing the Delhi government said, “Functioning of the government is completely paralysed. We cannot post officers, we cannot transfer officers despite the recent constitution bench verdict which has explained every aspect. These issues needs to be adjudicated at the earliest.”

Senior advocate Indira Jaising, who also appeared for the Delhi government, said officers are not willing to file an affidavit on this matter and Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had therefore filed the affidavit. “I just wanted to clarify the situation.”

Earlier a five-judge Constitution bench including Chief Justice Dipak Misra recently stated broad parameters for the governance of the Delhi which had a constant power tussle between the Centre and Delhi government since the election of Aam Aadmi Party in 2014.
