New Delhi: The Election Commission has allocated the ‘battery torch’ symbol to Kamal Haasan’s Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) party.
The 64-year-old actor thanked the EC for allocating the battery torch symbol. The actor-turned politician said MNM would strive to be a torchbearer in politics.
“MNM thanks the Election commission for granting us the ‘Battery Torch’ symbol for the forthcoming elections. So appropriate. MNM will endeavour to be the “Torch-Bearer” for a new era in TN and Indian politics,” Haasan said in a tweet.
Before launching his party in in February 2018, Kamal Haasan met various leaders including Congress president Rahul Gandhi, Delhi chief minister and AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal, Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan and West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee.
