Kamal to announce party name, plans on Feb 21

Kamal Haasan will undertake a state-wide tour of Tamil Nadu from February 21 “to truly understand the needs of my people”.

He will announce the name of his political party and its ideology at the beginning of his journey, the actor said.

The tour will be held in phases. He will begin the journey from Ramanathapuram — his hometown — and later visit people from the districts of Madurai, Dindigul and Sivagangai.

It will mark Kamal’s official entry into politics about which he has been making overtures since last year.

“At the commencement of the journey, I intend to announce the name of my political party along with the guiding principles we intend to live by,” Kamal said in a statement on Tuesday.

“He will be visiting people from various communities personally during this trip and will work on understanding the problem plaguing politics. The motive is to build a support base through personal interaction,” sources said.

The plank on which Kamal will seek support will be ‘development, growth and corruption free governance’.
