Makkal Needhi Maiam

Rajinikanth responding to Kamal Haasan’s party launch said that the Makkal Needhi Maiam will be able to win people’s confidence.

A day after Tamil actor Kamal Haasan officially forayed into the Tamil Nadu politics by launching his party ‘Makkal Needhi Maiam’, his possible political opponent Rajinikanth praised the party. Rajinikanth called Kamal Haasan efficient and said that Haasan will be able to win people’s confidence.

On Wednesday, Kamal Haasan launched his party Makkal Needhi Maiam and unveiled the party flag. Before this big launch, Kamal Haasan met Rajinikanth and M Karunanidhi of DMK. He had also invited Rajinikanth for the launch of his party. However, Rajinikanth chose not to attend.

Responding to questions from media persons, Rajinikanth in Madurai reiterated that every person has different paths while pursuing their aim but their ultimate aim is public welfare.

Wishing him luck in his political endeavour the Tamil Superstar said, “Kamal’s party launch was very nice and well organized.”

Kamal Haasan earlier last year made his plans to enter politics public. In December last year, Rajinikanth too had assured his fans that he will soon take a political plunge. Since then, the speculations of the two stalwarts of Tamil cinema joining hands started making rounds. However, brushing them aside as rumours, Kamal Haasan said that the alliance between both the stars is unlikely as Rajinikanth’s politics has a saffron hue.

However, both have time and again highlighted that despite the different paths, their ultimate goal is to serve the society.

Speaking in Lok Sabha during the Monsoon session, Congress MP from Thiruvananthapuram Shashi Tharoor said, “It (attack on office) wasn’t only an attack on constitutionally provided office but a larger attempt by ruling party to destroy the idea of India and accepting pluralism. Swami Agnivesh was also attacked. We shouldn’t stand by as mob lynching and hooliganism rule democracy.”

Earlier Shashi Tharoor who sparked a controversy after his “Hindu Pakistan” comment, earlier today again attacked the BJP-led Centre and questioned whether they are trying to start “Taliban in Hinduism”.

Tharoor while addressing a public gathering earlier on Wednesday in Thiruvananthapuram said, “They are asking me to go to Pakistan. Who has given them the right to decide that I am not a Hindu like them and I don’t have the right to stay in the country? Have they started a Taliban in Hinduism?”

“The prime minister addressed the Kisan Kalyan rally in Midnapore. People were brought in from Jharkhand, Odisha.

During the rally, a tent collapsed leaving 90 people injured, of which 50 were women. BJP had organised the rally. They must take the blame for the shabby arrangement for the prime minister’s rally,” Ray said during Zero Hour.

A make-shift tent collapsed during Modi’s rally in West Bengal’s Midnapore district on June 16, following which the Centre sought a report from the West Bengal government.

The tent was erected next to the main entrance of the rally venue to shelter people from the rain and the incident happened when Modi was mid-way through his speech.

The Karnataka BJP chief further suggested that the current Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) coalition government should work towards the development of the state instead.

Several North Karnataka leaders accused the state government of having done injustice to the region in its state budget and demanded separate statehood came after

Speaking to media, Yeddyurappa said that “The state government should issue a white paper on the internal status of the state. People need to understand the situation of the state. This can explain the last government’s rule.”

“There is no consensus on the separate state demand. Nobody should talk about a separate state. If there is no development then fight and work for the development of Karnataka. A separate state is not a solution. It is wrong if any party claims it,” he added.

Earlier, criticising the state budget Senior Congress leader H K Patil wrote a letter to Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy. He accused the Chief Minister of ignoring the minorities in the budget.
