On Sunday, Makkal Needhi Maiam leader Kamal Haasan announced that he would neither contest the upcoming Lok Sabha elections nor assembly bypolls in Tamil Nadu.
While releasing party’s manifesto in Coimbatore, he said, “I have lot of work to do. I will work towards the success of my candidates, but will not contest.”
His decision came days after he criticized Rajinikanth for not contesting in the upcoming parliamentary elections. He said, “You were thumping your thighs yesterday, why were you thumping? Just for sound?”
