Rajinikanth picks Narendra Modi over Mahagathbandhan in 2019 battle, says PM is stronger

A day after suggesting that the Bharatiya Janata Party may be dangerous because the Opposition thinks so, superstar Rajinikanth has clarified that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is actually stronger than the opposition combined. The actor-turned-politician said if 10 opposition parties are ganging up against the BJP, then the person on the other side fighting against them must be stronger.

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, the politician clarified: “My answer was if the opposition parties are seeing the BJP as a dangerous party, then for them (opposition parties), the BJP is a dangerous party. It is for the people to decide.”

“Who is powerful? If 10 people are ganging up against one? Imagine who is powerful? You can decide,” he added, endorsing PM Modi in the Mahagathbandhan versus NDA battle.

On Monday, Rajinikanth had said while responding to reporters’ questions in Chennai that if most of the opposition parties feel the BJP is dangerous, then it must be so. Also yesterday, the Tamil superstar, who had backed demonetisation when it was announced in November 2016, said that the decision was not implemented properly by the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre.
