Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) boss Kamal Haasan hinted on Tuesday that he is open to a political alliance with actor Rajinikanth ready to make his political debut in the congregation polls scheduled for next year in Tamil Nadu.
Speaking to reporters, Haasan said that if there are no ideological differences between them, his party is ready to “work together”. “Political change is necessary. We’re just a phone call away. If our ideology is similar and benefits people, we are ready to put our ego aside and cooperate with one another, ”he said.
Since Rajinikanth announced that his party would contest the upcoming elections in Tamil Nadu, he has been receiving bouquets of flowers and brickbats from the state’s political brotherhood.
At the beginning of this month, the AIADMK coordinator and the Deputy Prime Minister of Tamil Nadu, O Panneerselvam, had also spoken Willingness to join the actor’s party.
“We applaud the great film actor Rajinikanth’s decision to enter politics. Anything can happen in politics. If there is an opportunity, an alliance (with Rajinikanth) will be formed, ”he said. The AIADMK has since confirmed that it will continue its alliance with BJP for the upcoming parliamentary elections.
Rajinikanth will announce the name of his political party on December 31st.
In a statement he had said: “Everything is fate. This election is meant to change the fate of Tamil Nadu … If I win, it will be a victory for the people, and if I fail, it will be theirs too … I will change everything, everything! “
The Tamil superstar fueled speculation about his party’s leanings by introducing Ra Arjunamurthy, the former president of the intellectual wing of the BJP state unit, as the main coordinator of his fans’ association. Arjunamurthy was previously released from his post.
In 2017, Rajinikanth announced that his party would run alone. Now that he’s actually starting the party, it’s possible that he won’t form an alliance in 2021 either.
