An alleged statement of Rajinikanth saying that considering his health conditions, he wouldn't contest in the legislative assembly elections was doing the rounds on WhatsApp and other social networking sites.
Reacting to this news, Rajinikanth tweeted: "The statement doing the round on social media is not true. But the facts on my health condition and the doctor's advice in the said statement are true. I will consult with the office bearers of the Rajini Makkal Mandram at the right time and reveal my final decision on politics to the people".
With his recent statement, Rajinikanth has indirectly confirmed that he decides to quit politics but a final decision will be taken only after consulting with the office bearers of his Rajini Makkal Mandram
