Kamal firm on political entry, floating party

Agencies, Chennai

Actor Kamal Haasan today said he was firm on entering politics by floating a new party and hoped that it would be funded by his fans.

Inter-acting with the members of the fans welfare association ahead of his birthday on November seven, he said as a first step towards entering politics, he would launch a dedicated mobile App to stay in touch with his fans and well-wishers and also to keep account of the funds received from fans for his political party.

Exuding confidence of his fans funding his political party, he said there was nothing wrong in stretching out his hands to seek funds from his fans (for his political party) as he was doing it for the sake of Tamil Nadu.

‘’I am not ashamed of doing it for the welfare of Tamil Nadu’’, he added. He also said if the rich people paid their tax regularly, the country would be fine. Noting that persecution has become common in politics, Kamal said “it does not matter how many people are threatening us. What we are going to do is matters most’’.

‘’I am ready to take all the beatings. To beat again and again, I am not the mrindangam (a percussion instrument)’’, he added. Asserting that he was not advocating bringing down temples, the 62-year-old Viswaroppam actor said, ‘’they (the temples) all are our buildings’’.

He also said he was scared about the Hindus here rather than those in Uttar Pradesh. “But don’t swallow poison given in the name of religion,” Kamal said, adding, he did not feel insulted if put in jail,because he has not committed any robbery.

He also said ‘’we end up repeating the same mistakes without looking back at the history’’. Observing that nature’s fury does not discriminate the poor and the rich, Kamal said ‘’do we need to wait till we lose lives in natural disasters?…everyone should come forward to take preventive measures’’.
