Senior Minister and All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam veteran D Jayakumar has challenged Makkal Needhi Maiam president Kamal Haasan to defeat NOTA in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
He was reacting to the actor-turned-politician’s recent comment that his party was gearing up for contesting all 40 Lok Sabha seats in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry in the coming Parliamentary polls.
“Kamal has said his party would contest in all 40 constituencies. Let him defeat NOTA first,” Jayakumar told reporters in Chennai.
Speaking to reporters recently, the Indian and Viswaroopam actor said, “Our aim is to not go with any tainted group. We are preparing to contest 40 seats in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry. I cannot say at this moment from where I will contest.”
Meanwhile, superstar Rajinikanth met his good friend Kamal Haasan in Chennai on Thursday to invite him for his daughter Soundarya’s wedding.
The wedding is going to be nothing short of a grand affair with who’s who of the Tollywood, Kollywood and Bollywood in attendance. Many politicians too are expected to attend the wedding.
Already, Rajini has invited Congress leader S Thirunavukkarasar, DMK president M K Stalin, Minister Kadambur Raju, maestro Ilayaraja, actor Prabhu and others.
