Kamal Haasan to launch his political party today

Veteran actor Kamal Haasan is set to launch his political party today and reached Tamil Nadu’s Rameswaram early this morning where he was given a rousing welcome by his supporters. Mr Haasan set out on a yatra from the island and will launch his political party in Madurai later in the day.

He addressed the fishermen community and said, “Different governments have made different promises and then when people ask why the promises are not met, they bring different problems in front of them.

” Mr Haasan also met Abdul Kalam’s elder brother at his residence. He is to address public meetings in Ramanathapuram, Manamadurai and Paramakudi, his home town. While announcing his political tour last month, the actor had said he too shared the vision of Mr Kalam who dreamt of a “good Tamil Nadu”. By launching his tour from the residence of Mr Kalam, he would be moving forward towards that goal, he had said.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will attend Mr Haasan’s party launch, the actor’s camp said.
