Modi keeping an eye on Kamal's political party?

Kamal Hassan became a political celebrity the day he announced the colour of his politics. Though his party has not yet been launched, Kamal has grabbed many eyeballs by stating that his politics was black, the colour of protest and fury. This statement immediately brought him points from the Dravidian vote bank. Kamal has always been vocal in his criticism of saffron politics and this open statement completely clarified his stance. The anti-saffron Kamal is also known to be in touch with the Communists. It is expected that the launch of his party will have an anti-BJP and anti-saffron politics flavour. It is also highly likely that Kamal’s party’s launch will become a platform to unite anti-BJP parties.

Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, West Bengal CM Mamta Bannerjee and Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan have already accepted the invitation to Kamal’s party launch. It is no secret that all three are staunchly anti-Modi. Kamal has already criticised programmes such as ‘Ghar Vaapsi’, ‘Gorakshan’, demonetization of Rs 1000 and Rs 500 notes and the GST, and seems to be bent on bringing down Modi’s popularity a notch. He is set to start the ‘Naalai Namade’ campaign with the main intention of discomfiting Hindutva political parties. The charismatic actor recently bowed to a portrait of Dr APJ Abdul Kalam and declared that he would practice ‘common man’ politics. It remains to be seen how Hindutva outfits respond to his new party.
