In a public gathering, Makkal Needhi Maiam party chief Kamal Haasan on Thursday said that he will be releasing a ‘book of principles’ for his party in 180 days. He said, there are parties that are functioning with party manifesto but they are not following anything from the manifesto. He said, “They asked me where my party manifesto is, I have a question, are the parties that have manifesto following what is written in it? This government is standing on ‘Annaism’ and ruling the state”.
Addressing women as part of the Women's Day celebrations in Royapettah on Thursday, Makkal Needhi Maiam founder Kamal Haasan said he can proudly say that he knows how to wear saree. He remembered his mother on the occasion and heaped praises about her for having brought him up teaching a lot of life lessons.
According to reports, Kamal Haasan's party Makkal Needhi Maiam has announced a solatium of Rs 10 lakh to the family of Trichy woman Usha. The young woman died of injury after the bike she was travelling on was kicked by a traffic cop. Earlier, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami announced Rs 7 lakh ex-gratia to the family.
Makkal Needhi Maiam founder Kamal Haasan on Thursday addressed students at the SSN College in Kanchipuram and explained what being at the Maiam (centre) means. “Standing at the centre does not mean not taking sides. It is about standing at the centre to assess both the sides and decide which one is right,” the actor-turned-politician said.
Addressing the media on Wednesday regarding the controversy surrounding BJP national secretary H Raja’s remarks on Periyar statues, Kamal Haasan said such a comment is a wicked act. “No one can cause any harm to Periyar’s dignity or his statues in Tamil Nadu,” the Makkal Needhi Maiam founder said. Kamal Haasan also warned that the controversy should not distract people from the demand for the Cauvery Management Board. Police protection is needed for H Raja, not for Periyar statues, the actor-turned-politician said adding that Tamils know how to protect Periyar’s statues and his honour.
The Madras High Court on Tuesday ordered the Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority (CMDA) to issue notices to 138 persons over illegal constructions of bungalows on the East Coast Road in Chennai.

The court adjourned the case till April 9.
Makkal Needhi Maiam's leader, Kamal Haasan addressed people during the application process event to join his party in the party office in Alwarpet, Chennai. While answering some students' questions, he addressed his previous statement that there cannot be a complete ban on liquor. He said, "It is shameful that what a private body should be running is being run by the government," referring to TASMAC. Kamal stated that TASMAC is not an essential service, but the government has made it essential for Tamil Nadu. "The reason why I said that there cannot be a complete ban on liquor is not to see everyone drink and go to waste. You have all started drinking, so to not go to waste, only regulations can be made and not a complete ban," said Kamal.
Makkal Needhi Maiam founder Kamal Haasan reportedly distributed membership applications to all the 32 districts in Tamil Nadu. Party high-level officials and district-level functionaries received the bundles of applications from Kamal Haasan in Chennai. Reports suggest that the actor held discussions with district functionaries on strengthening the party.
Allegedly, Makkal Needhi Maiam's party leader, Kamal Haasan commented that it is not possible for a complete ban on liquor in Tamil Nadu. Following this, BJP state president Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan in a press meet was quoted as saying that women will oppose Kamal. She stated that Kamal Haasan is saying things that oppose women and so Tamil Nadu women will definitely oppose him.
