The BJP which is getting spectacular electoral successes in recent times has been making plans for inroads into South India and it is now targeting Tamil Naidu, for which it is working hard, trying to rope in Superstar Rajnikanth promising him to make the chief ministerial candidate. But till now Rajnikanth has reportedly refused to bite the bullet.
The jail term for Jayalalithaa for recently hogged all the limelight and at a time when BJP was sensing a right opportunity, courtesy letter which was written recently by Rajnikanth to Jayalalitha wishing Jaya good health and Diwali greetings came as a surprise. This in a way reinforces popular perception that Rajni is too nice a person to take up any political fights especially against Jayalalitha who is known to be very vindictive to her opponents.
The ‘Viswaroopam controversy’ which forced Kamal Haasan to threaten that he would leave the country is still in everyone’s memory after his snipe at Jaya. The BJP now feels that Rajinikanth has surrendered very early to Jaya.
