Unveiling of MGR's statue is the first public function that Rajinikanth has participated after his announcement on his political plunge.
Delivering his first public speech after he announced his decision to enter politics in December, said that there is vacuum in Tamil Nadu politics and hence the superstar has decided to make his entry. "I know the political journey is not easy. It is a journey through struggles and hurdles but I can give governance which they (MGR) gave to common people and I trust I can do that too," he said.
Commenting on the decision of actors entering politics, the actor said non-governance by the current parties have lead to the action. "I am 67 years now, since you are not doing your duty I am stepping in," he added.
