Has BJP lost its influence? Rajinikanth

Sources from Chennai stated that Tamil superstar Rajinikanth said the BJP losing elections in the Hindi heartland states of Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan and a close contest with arch rival Congress in Madhya Pradesh showed it has "lost its influence." Meanwhile when reacting to BJP's loss, Makkal Needhi Maiam Chief Kamal Hassan in a tweet said, "First sign of a new start. This is people's verdict."

When speaking to reporters at the airport in Chennai, Rajinikanth said, "It clearly shows that BJP has lost its influence." Furthermore the electoral reverses for the saffron party were also a "setback" for it and the top actor's comments came in the wake of Congress trumping BJP in clear mandates in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh to form governments, even as a close race was on the cards in Madhya Pradesh when reports last came in.

Has BJP lost its influence? Rajinikanth

Earlier Rajinikanth, who had announced that he would take the political plunge, had last month virtually thrown his weight behind Modi, saying the PM was 'stronger' than '10 persons' aligning against him. He told "When 10 persons go against one person, who is stronger? Those 10, or the persons they are aligning against. If 10 persons declare a war against one man, who is stronger," when questioned on the possibility of an alliance by opposition parties against PM Modi and his BJP.
