On February 22nd 2018, Kamal Haasan officially launched his political party- Makkal Needhi Maiam. He started it from APJ Abdul Kalam’s House in Rameswaram and then went to Madurai. At the public meeting, he told all his proposals and promised education for all, employment to educated people and a caste free society.
Haasan’s party emblem signifies the six of the southern states. He also said that its time for the people’s unfulfilled dreams to come true and also thanked the 20,000 people who came to the Otthakadai grounds.
“If you want corruption, you vote for these two parties — AIADMK and DMK. If you want good education, healthcare, roads and electricity, you vote for Kamal Haasan. He is my real-life hero,” Kejriwal said. He added that if AAP could displace BJP and Congress in a short time, Haasan can defeat DNK and AIADMK which are corrupt. Haasan said he wants to stop the method of taking money for vote. People should vote for their nation’s welfare and not by taking 6,000 per vote and losing an opportunity to make 6 lakhs through development.
