Kamal Hassan explains how ‘six enjoined hands’ represents six Southern states
Actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan explained that the six ‘enjoining hands’ symbol of his new political party ‘Makkal Needhi Maiam’ represents six southern states.
Speaking at the launch event of the party, the politician said that he has kept name ‘Maiam’ (Centre) because he did not belong to either Left or Right.
It need be mentioned that the six southern states Haasan was talking about are Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and one Union Territory Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
He said his party would work on providing quality education to all and diminishing caste and religion difference in the society.
Hassan said that his party will work on many issues including fighting corruption together.
He said that people have unfortunately sold their votes for meager amount.
He said that once a voter accepts money, he/ she cannot ask your representative for anything.
Haasan said all these years he was in people’s heart and now he wants to be a part of their residence.
He also spoke on his inspiration and named Bhim Rao Ambedkar, Mahatma Gandhi or Periyar EV Ramasamy as a few.
He also named some of his contemporaries including Arvind Kejriwal, N Chandrababu Naidu, Pinarayi Vijayan, and Barack Obama.
Haasan said he wanted to start his party silently and move slowly towards campaigning.
On the Supreme Court’s verdict on the Cauvery dispute, Haasan said Tamil Nadu could get water if there was good dialogue with Karnataka.
He said his two daughters – Shruti Haasan and Akshara Haasan, who were present at the launch event, were free to decide whether to join him in this new journey or not. >
