Mansoor Ali Khan usually surfaces close to the elections and makes his presence felt. This time, he has announced that he will be contesting the elections independently as he is disheartened by the state of politics in Tamil Nadu. In the mad jostling for power, he claims that everyone is only concerned about seats and convenient political alliances and that nobody actually cares about the welfare of the state or the suffering of the people. This is the main reason for his decision to refrain from joining any of the parties and to stand alone.
The actor had formerly contested from the Periyakulam constituency in the 1999 elections and later for the Trichy parliament elections. The support and faith shown by the people who voted for him has encouraged him and given him the courage to stand alone. He has not yet decided his constituency this time around and will make an announcement shortly.
Mansoor Ali Khan wants to start a party called Tamil Perarasu that will focus on helping the people of Tamil Nadu and give them a better quality of life.
