Speaking to reporters here, he said ‘One India, One Election’ is a good idea as it would save time and money of political parties. He also movie star said a decision on contesting in the general elections will be taken later. Rajinikanth had earlier said his party would contest in the next assembly elections. Queried about the proposed Chennai-Salem eight-lane expressway, Rajinikanth said such projects would bring in industrial investments.
