Chennai, Sep 13 (tamilnaducentral): Kamal Haasan tweeted that he got no invitation from CPM to attend the seminar in Kerala. His tweet said -” Embarrassing. Was not asked for Calicut meeting with Kerala CM. I am at Bigg Boss all saturdays till Oct. Best wishes for the function.”
Kamal Haasan is to launch the political party on Vijayadasami day, reported an English national daily, quoting a source close to the actor. The daily says that Kamal Haasan will field close to 30,000 candidates in the upcoming election to civic bodies. He has already started the preparation for this and interaction through his service organisations has already begun.
The actor realised that with AIADMK split and DMK not able to fill the vacuum left behind by J Jayalalithaa, there is a need for an alternative. The civic polls has to be conducted before November 17 as per court order. The civic poll was to be held in October last year. Jayalalithaa fresh from the victory in State elections made the election to Mayor indirect and gave a one month notice to hold the polls to civic bodies. DMK went to court against this and demanded that Scheduled Castes be given reservation in civic polls. AIADMK ministry took to the Union ministry to give the census figures.
After Jayalalithaa’s death, AIADMK wanted to avoid an electoral battle. The situation became more grave after the Election Commission froze the party symbol of AIADMK. The State Government to get more time had told the court that delimitation of wards was in progress. Later as the HC verdict came, the State has moved the apex court against it. BJP too supported this move.
The plan is that if Kamal Haasan can prove that he can be a deciding factor for the fortunes of Dravidian parties, things will change. Now that no alliances are on the cards, then like-minded parties will join Kamal Haasan ahead of the civic polls. CPI, CPM and MDMK who were part of the PWF in the State poll might join hands with Kamal.
One view is that State will go to polls with Lok Sabha polls as BJP will ride piggyback on EPS-OPS groups. Yet another view is a Governor’s rule is on the cards. The Loyola College survey says that DMK is the first choice for voters and not Kamal Haasan or Rajinikanth.
