Kamal Haasan solicits donations for his political party

Superstar turned politician, Kamal Haasan has announced that he will solicit public donations for his political party, Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM).

The actor-turned-politician said in a statement that he was looking for donations to change people’s lives. He said he was looking for money not only for people’s well-being but also to ensure good livelihoods for the next generation.

Kamal Haasan said donations are sought from the public to keep the policy honest. He said he was pumping his after-tax earnings into the political party, but that wasn’t enough to challenge “corrupt rats” in politics.

He said many in the film industry used to call him a prophet, but added that he did not believe in prophecies but in beliefs and work.

The MNM has already fielded candidates in most corporations and municipalities and is expected to win a few seats in city body polls, but the party has yet to secure as many candidates to compete in the city’s Panchayat seats.

Kamal Haasan’s decision to solicit donations had previously not gone down well with the general public and his own party men, but the superstar is seeking money from the public to advance the political party and its activities.
