Rules on flags and social media conduct have been included in the list of rules to be followed by the members.
Rajini Makkal Mandram (RMM), an outfit led by actor and politician Rajinikanth has released a rule book for its members and people in administrative posts.
The book outlines basic rules to be followed by the present and aspiring members of RMM. One of the main rules that have been put for the members is that anyone who is part of any religious or caste-based organisation cannot be a member of RMM.
Other rules are as following:
Members of RMM are not allowed to affix the flags in their vehicles except during the times of events and RMM functions.
Youth wing of RMM to have members who are less than 35 years of age.
Anybody over the age of 18 can become a member of RMM.
The party flag shall be made of cloth only.
Decisions regarding appointment and termination of RMM workers taken by the leadership will be final.
RMM posts shall be given to one person only in a family.
The members must respect women and must be law-abiding citizens.
Strictly no personal attacks on someone who expresses a contradictory view.
No demands for money or material must be made under the name of the Mandram without the written statement from RMM.
Social media posts shall not be made under the name or tag of RMM.
Elections for district level posts shall be held separately under the supervision of committees formed for this purpose.
Rajinikanth announced his political entry on December 31, 2017 and had directed fans to gather supporters for the mandram in their respective districts. Since then enrollment camps are being conducted across the state. District level functionaries were appointed to the RMM and are being closely monitored by the leadership. Recently, RMM expelled a district-level leader for indiscipline.
