NEW DELHI: A day after ending suspense over his political debut, Tamil superstar Rajinikanth on Monday launched his website and an android application for his fans and supporters to register for his yet-to-be-launched political party.

In the video appeal on Twitter, he urged his fans and supporters, who wish to see a political change in Tamil Nadu, to enroll themselves on the website www.rajinimandram.org. The app is meant for his fans to connect with him.

The 67-year-old actor also thanked all those who welcomed his entry into the world of politics.

While making the announcement on Sunday about launching his own political party, the actor had said that he would contest upcoming elections.

"I will start my own party. I will contest in all 234 seats," he said.

The veteran actor made the announcement at Chennai's Sri Raghavendra Kalyana Mandapam.

Expressing his faith in the government, Rajinikanth said, "This is the time for political revolution."

He further said, "In the name of democracy politicians are robbing us of our own money on our own land. We need to bring a change from the base."

On Tuesday, Rajinikanth had said that he would announce his decision on December 31, ending all speculations over his political debut.

"Truth, work and growth will be the three mantras of our party," the superstar added.

He had made the announcement at a six-day event which he had launched on Tuesday to meet with fans in Chennai. Termed as 'meet and greet', the event ended on Sunday.
