Kamal Haasan to contest from 2 seats in TN Assembly polls

- Advertisement -

Chennai, March 2, 2021-
Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) founder Kamal Haasan is likely to contest from two constituencies in the coming Assembly polls in Tamil Nadu — Anthaloor and Coimbatore South — party sources said on Tuesday.

The 234-member Tamil Nadu Assembly will go to the polls on April 6. The results will be declared on May 2.

The actor-turned politician has entered into a political alliance with the All India Samathuva Makkal Katchi (AISMK), helmed by R. Sarathkumar who was an MLA from Tenkasi constituency in alliance with the AIADMK.

MNM is also eyeing political ties with Vijayakanth’s DMDK if it snaps its alliance with the AIADMK over seat-sharing.

Vijayakanth’s wife Premalatha Vijayakanth and her brother L.G. Sudheesh have threatened the AIADMK leadership of snapping ties if the demanded number of seats are not been alloted to the party.

DMDK has also entered into a seat-sharing discussion with Kamal Haasan, which, if materialises, would lead to the emergence of a powerful third front.

Haasan is also planning an alliance with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) which is mulling to contest the state elections.

The Indhiya Jananayaga Katchi (IJK) led by Loksabha MP T.R. Paarivendhar has also entered into an alliance with Sharathkumar’s AISMK, which will be part of the Kamal Haasan-led third front alliance.

The actor-politician had already announced that if his party comes to power in Tamil Nadu, liquor sale will be privatised with half the sales through government controlled TASMAC and the rest through private players.

With the DMK-led front, which includes DMK, Congress, CPM and other Left forces, on one side and the AIADMK-led front comprising AIADMK, BJP and other parties on the other, it has to be seen how the emergence of a third front alliance led by Kamal Haasan and his MNM cuts into the vote share of the major alliances.
