Superstar Rajinikanth on April 9 welcomed the BJP's poll promise of implementing river inter-linking and said the initiative would address the issue of poverty as it would lead to upliftment of farmers and employment for crores of people.
Speaking to reporters here, he made it clear there was no change in his stand of not supporting any political party in the coming Lok Sabha elections bypolls to Tamil Nadu assembly. Interlinking of rivers is among the promises made in the BJP's manifesto for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls released Monday by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. "I've been pushing for inter-linking (of rivers). BJP has said it would form a commission for interlinking of rivers. It's welcome," he said.
Noting that interlinking of rivers was a dream of former prime minister A B Vajpayee, the superstar recalled he had taken up the issue with the former when he met him and suggested that it be christened "Bhagiratham Yojana." Bhagiratham means making the impossible possible. "By God's grace and if people give the BJP a chance to form the government at the Centre for the second time, the party should inter-link rivers," the 69-year-old star said.
