Actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan Thursday claimed Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) is the third biggest party in Tamil Nadu and announced that he will be contesting in the 2021 assembly election.

Addressing the media in Chennai, two days ahead of his birthday, Kamal Haasan spoke about various issues in the state and threw an open invitation for honest people from other parties who want to join him in the race for change. Haasan, who held consultations with district secretaries of his party for the past four days, said days are not too far for MNM to become a national party.

“I am very to happy to inform you all that Makkal Needhi Maiam is the third biggest party in Tamil Nadu. I would like to reiterate what Gandhiji said, honesty is our strategy, it is our ideology. We invite honest people from other parties who are deprived of opportunities. One lakh people have joined us newly, our brand of politics is not a vendetta, it is politics of direction. We will lead the third-front when it is formed. I will contest in the upcoming assembly elections, MNM’s voice will be heard in the Tamil Nadu assembly,” Haasan said.
