Kamal Haasan’s birthday announcement: Ready for Tamil Nadu bypolls

Actor-politician Kamal Haasan on his 64th birthday said that his Makkal Needhi Maiam party is ready to contest by-elections on 20 assembly seats in Tamil Nadu, whenever they are held.
Three months ago, he indicated that his party would contest the 2019 general elections but was ‘not in the mindset’ to contest the by-election in the state.

“Nobody knows whether the by-elections will be held. But we are ready to contest whenever they take place,” Kamal Haasan told reporters in Chennai today.
“I am not the one who believes in making promises. I am seeking suggestions from people,” he added.
