It is Kamal Hassan's political party name. Also, will he be the new storm of the Tamil Nadu politics?
"Makkal Needhi Maiam" is the political party started by the renowned actor Kamal Hassan in Tamil Nadu. The term “Makkal Needhi Maiam” roughly translates to “people’s justice forum”. The inauguration of the party was done amidst a huge crowd in Madurai’s Ottakattai Grounds.
The chief minister of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal flew down south to show his support the versatile actor who is venturing into politics.
The party flag is made up of white background and it has 6 interlinked arms in red and white with a star at the center and the flag will carry the name of the party as well.
“The six hands represent the 6 states of South India and the star at the centre represent the people”, said Hassan.
Kamal Hassan even took a moment to address this on social media such as Twitter and Facebook as there is a huge fan base and a lot of support can be gained. People in Tamilnadu and Andhra Pradesh had nasty experiences of parties launched by political parties earlier. In view of this background, Kamal Hassan had to keep his promises simple and approach people in a straightforward manner.
Kamal Hassan's Role models in Politics are Arvind Kejriwal of AAP and Pinarayi Vijayan of the CPM. Eradication of Corruption and Communalism are the two important things in his party agenda.
