In yet another step forward, the actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan released the list of members who will comprise the empowered committee that will shape and execute the policies of his newly-launched political party.
Hassan has named his party as Makkal Needhi Maiam.
Among the empowered committee are included agriculturist-advocate Arunachalam A, writer-director C Rajashekaran, professor-writer-speaker KU Gnanasambandhan, actress-producer-director Sripriya Rajkumar, among others.
Hassan also thanked Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and Aam Aadmi Party MLA from Delhi Somnath Bharti
for participating in the launch of the party.
Ahead of national election next year, Haasan had on Wednesday launched his political party Makkal Needhi Maiam while also unfurling the party flag moments before announcing the name.
The party flag was unveiled just before Haasan announced the name of his party.
Besides Kejriwal and Bharti, farmer leader PR Pandian was also on the dais for the launch.
He asked his followers to realise that they have a big responsibility and they had to be pioneers.
