Kamal Haasan to name his party, launch TN Yatra on Feb.21

Chennai, Jan.18- Veteran actor Kamal Haasan is all set to announce his political party’s name on Feb.21 at Tamil Nadu’s Ramanathapuram and will also begin a State-wide tour on the same day marking his official entry into politics about which he has been making overtures since last year.

The tour will be held in phases. He will begin the journey from Ramanathapuram — his hometown — and later visit people from the districts of Madurai, Dindigul and Sivagangai.

In a statement yesterday, Kamal Hassan said: “At the commencement of the journey,   I intend to announce the name of my political party along with the guiding principles we intend to live by.”

“However, for this to happen, my thoughts and actions need to collectively resonate with the people,” he said adding “through the State-wide tour I want to familiarise myself with the people’s concerns… to truly understand as to what the needs of my people are? What is afflicting them? What their aspirations are?”
