Makkal Needhi Maiam chief and Tamil actor Kamal Haasan said that the BJP's threat of raids by central agencies is politically motivated. Kamal told Media One that he was not afraid of raids and that they are not going to find anything from his house. Haasan asserted that Makkal Needhi Maiam (People's Justice Centre) is the voice of the people.
He said that the response from the people during the election campaign has been excellent and beyond expectations.
He further added that most parts of Tamil Nadu do not even have basic facilities and opined that if an honest effort had been made, it would have been achieved by now.
The actor turned politician is all set to make his debut in the upcoming Tamil Nadu Assembly elections and is contesting from the Coimbatore South constituency. Kamal had earlier said that communal polarization was taking place in the area and therefore it should be fought against. He had also promised to work to ensure that the city, known as the Manchester of the South, does not lose its pride and glory.
He has also promised a lot of other things through his party's manifesto – right from Rs 3,000 monthly payouts for homemakers to monthly assistance of Rs 5,000 to a select group of people, including those aged 75. The MNM also said that it will introduce a State Eligibility cum Entrance Test (SEET) replacing the present NEET, which would be helpful to the students of Tamil Nadu.
