‘Only Want Change, Don’t Want To Be CM’: Rajinikan
Over two years after announcing his intention to enter politics, Tamil superstar Rajinikanth on Thursday said he would like to lead his party to power but is not keen on becoming the CM himself.

During his first official press conference at a five-star hotel in Chennai, the actor-turned-politician said: "I have never thought of the Chief Minister's post. I only want a change in politics... If change in politics and government does not happen now, it will never happen.”

His statement comes ahead of the 2021 Tamil Nadu assembly election.

Though he did not make a statement on floating his party but called for an “uprising” by youth, after which he would make his formal political entry.

With a two-leadership system for party and the government, the former would act as an “opposition” to highlight issues and would not even hesitate to “remove”, apparently the head of the government, if it fails to perform, he said.

“My plan is to appoint an educated youth who was compassionate and had self-respect as CM. A strong leader will head TN,” he said.

His prospective party is inviting IAS, IPS, doctors, advocates and people under the age of 50 to be part of it and he will supervise them.

"I myself would reach out to them and invite them", the 69-year-old actor said.

"There were two stalwarts in our politics, one was Jayalalithaa and one was Kalaignar (M Karunanidhi). People voted for them but now, there is a vacuum. Now, we need to create a new movement to bring change. There will be different heads for the party and possible government headed by it," he added.
