Rajinikanth's surprise meeting with Thirunavukkarasar, Thiruma triggers speculations in TN politics

Just days after S Thirunavukkarasar was dropped from the post of Tamil Nadu Congress Committee president, superstar Rajinikanth called on him today, paving way for various speculations in Tamil Nadu political arena. Adding more spice to the guessing games was the presence of Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi president Thol Thirumavalavan at Thirunavukkarasar's residence at Anna Nagar in Chennai, when the superstar went there.

However, the air was cleared soon when it was stated that Rajini went there to invite Thirunavukkarasar for his younger daughter Soundarya's wedding and Thirumavalavan's presence there at that time was just a coincidence. Also, Thirunavukkarasar too has said he would not quit Congress and join the political party to be floated by Rajinikanth. "He will invite me to his party. And, even if he invites me, I won't join. I will continue in Congress," Thirunavukkarasar said.

But still, it is being predicted that politics were discussed during the meeting between Rajini, Thirunavukkarsar and Thirumavalavan, and things would come out in open soon. Recently, Congress president Rahul Gandhi dropped Thirunavukkarasar from his post and replaced him with senior leader K S Alagiri. He had also appointed five working presidents for the Tamil Nadu Congress Committee, for the first time in the history of the party.
