Sort out Karnataka system first, D Jayakumar tells Rajinikanth

"Let Rajinikanth first correct the system of Karnataka to ensure release of the Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu to save the standing crops in Delta districts", Jayakumar said.

"I appeal to Rajinikanth to correct the system there (Karnataka). if he takes efforts with us to secure our right of 205 tmc ft of Cauvery water, it will be a good thing", he said.

Political observers and keeping a keen watch on the kind of repercussions that that entry of the two big stars of Tamil Nadu into politics would create after the state witnessing political instability after the demise of J Jayalalithaa. Though Rajinikanth was raised in Bengaluru, he relocated to Chennai and made the city his home since 1975 after late K Balachander introduced him in "Aboorva Raagangal" movie.

Answering questions from mediapersons, Jayakumar said, "Rajinikanth should clarify which part of the system in Tamil Nadu is not good". But please don't make generalised statements.

Social media has been agog with memes making fun of Rajinikanth's reference to "the system". Asked whether his "system is rotten" remark referred to Tamilnadu alone or the nation in general, Rajinikanth had said "first of all, in Tamilnadu you have to correct it". Jayakumar was reacting to Rajini's comments on Thursday that "the system has to be set right in Tamil Nadu".

He asked Rajinikanth not to "provoke" AIADMK, and took potshots at the actor, asking him if he was an engineer as it was only they who talk of "system". But Rajinikanth had clarified then that by "spiritual politics" he meant politics that was above "caste, creed and religion".
