Describing the anti-graft movement by Gandhian Anna Hazare as a 'bloodless revolution', Tamil superstar Rajnikanth [ Images ] extended his 'whole-hearted support' to it and said corruption is a dreaded disease that needs to be weeded out.
"I am very happy that we have a very able and dedicated leader in Anna Hazare to lead us in this fight against corruption. This kind of peaceful movement is possible only in India [ Images ] which is the birthplace of Satyagraha," he said.
In a statement to India Against Corruption, which is spearheading the campaign for a strong Jan Lokpal Bill, Rajnikanth said he whole-heartedly supported the demand to get the Bill passed in Parliament.
"I congratulate all the Indians who have lent their support to this bloodless revolution. I am very proud to be an Indian," the 61-year-old actor, who has a huge fan following, said.
There could be no doubt that corruption is a dreaded disease and needed to be weeded out from society, said Rajnikant, who is recuperating from kidney-related ailment after undergoing treatment in a Singapore hospital last month.
