Kamal Hassan Political Party ‘Makkal Needhi Maiam’ Launched With Great Agenda
Haasan has evaded the word Dravidian for the sake of his party and has favored the term Makkal – people to mean comprehensiveness and even his party image on the banner – held turns in red, white and dark black scheme- signifies solidarity and battle for equity for the common people of Tamil Nadu, said a man from Haasan’s group who did not have any desire to be named.
“I am not a thalaiva (leader or boss), I am one among you,” Haasan’s opening remarks after unfurling the party flag sets the tone and tenor of his political messaging.
While Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) pioneer Kejriwal imparted the phase to Haasan, Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan sent his welcome to the actor – an underwriting of Haasan’s left of focus political position. Haasan has in the past made it clear that he won’t go towards the conservative BJP. Another outstanding “fan” to send his great wishes to the actor was Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu, who has recently has been breathing flame against partner BJP and the central government for neglecting his state in the Union budget.
Kejriwal singled out corruption and communalism as the key discomfort tormenting the nation and said legit leaders like Kamal Haasan can be the genuine contrasting option to all around settled in political interests. Kejriwal immovably embraced Haasan’s party slogan “Naalai Namadhu” – tomorrow is our own.
Earlier, addressing his first political rally, Haasan said, “The past will remain the past, but it will not be forgotten. How long can we keep waiting for justice?”
“Don’t think, left or right, just think of people and their welfare, this is the advise Chandrababu Naidu gave me when we spoke last night,” he told the huge gathering of fans and supporters at the Madurai rally.
“Now I have the person who has done it, won the trust of the people and working for the people, sitting beside me (Kejriwal), so I am sure I can do it, with your support for all of us,” he said.
On the Cauvery issue, Haasan said, “So far the politicians on either side were playing politics only. But in a genuine spirit of dialogue and give and take, it can be solved. See during Tsunami, floods and cyclone, people from Bangalore donated blood for us, what is water,” he pointed out.
“After a full career in films, after making so much money, it is time I repaid to you the people, to the society. Which is why, I am coming into politics, not as a thalaivar, but as one among you,” Haasan said.
Earlier, Kejriwal, speaking in English, described Haasan as a real-life hero, “who has the courage to speak against injustice and communal forces in the country”.
If you want corruption, vote for DMK and AIADMK. If you want schools, road, water, electricity vote for Kamal Haasan, the Delhi chief minister said.
All the trappings of the film world – music, dance, emotions, drama and dialogues — were in full evidence as Haasan began his political journey with a breakfast meeting with the family of former president APJ Abdul Kalam in their Rameshwaram home.
Haasan said he was greatly inspired by Kalam, his simplicity and humble lifestyle. He tweeted, “glad to start my journey from a great man’s simple abode”.
