Kamal Haasan revealed his collaboration plans for upcoming Tamil Nadu Assembly elections in his recent press meet
As Kamal Haasan's political party Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) has stepped into its third year, party leader Kamal Haasan met the media at a star hotel in Chennai.
He later said that Makkal Needhi Maiam is not 'post hungry'. If the ideologies match, MNM will collaborate with any political party other than DMK and AIADMK, he added.
Kamal Haasan assured all that MNM would definitely replace the present major regional political parties as he had already done it in Tamil cinema by capturing the position while yesteryear heroes MG Ramachandran and Sivaji Ganesan were still present in the industry.
Makkal Needhi Maiam was launched on February 21 in 2018. During the 2019 Lok Sabha election, the party obtained a vote share of 3.72%. The party secured its highest votes in Coimbatore.
And for the upcoming Tamil Nadu state elections in 2021, Makkal Needhi Maim is expected to contest in all 234 constituencies in Tamil Nadu. Earlier, there were rumours about the party collaborating with the Congress and Aam Aadmi Party. "We have to wait till 2021 to chalk out the party's future course of action," said Kamal Haasan.
