Kamal Haasan plunges into politics

"It is an open platform to connect with the people". Kamal asked the media persons.

He also said "Maiyam Whistle" is not simply a mobile application but he sees it as a digital platform, which will be used to constantly keep the pressure on people in power. I'm in talks with experts from across the spectrum to lay a strong foundation.

The "Ulaganayagan", as he's called by fans, also said that he would tour Tamil Nadu and would make a formal announcement in January.

The Congress had announced that it will observe November 8, the day demonetisation was announced previous year as "black day". Had India's economy not been strong no foreign investor would've come here.

Earlier, Haasan, reviving up his political career, in his regular column in a Tamil weekly news magazine wrote that terrorism has spread to right-wing camps. I never begin a word trying to hurt Hindus.

The clarification from the actor came almost a week he was criticised over his comments on right-wing extremism by several Hindu outfits, including the RSS.

"I definitely don't want to hurt Hindu sentiments, as I myself belong to a Hindu family, but I have taken a different path", he averred. "They started indulging in violence". It applies to Hindus and Muslims. I did not use the word terror, the word I used was extreme. "But there is violence", he said. But I have come out of that in search of truth. "If punishment is given for that, I am ready to accept it". There is no pride or shame in it.

He said he was neither a "believer", nor an "atheist". So we are looking at longer time.

"You have to give me time for coming out with a manifesto, a name". Working on structural part. "Party name is just a formality", said Kamal. He said the "virtuous cycle" among us has turned into a "vicious cycle" and he will be working towards to change it. He wanted people to be whistleblowers. This meeting is to announce I have arrived in politics. "Even I should be questioned", he asserted. "All parties appreciate our social welfare work", he said. "Even if a technician does something wrong, it will affect my film".

Stating that there is no hurry to unveil his political outfit, the actor said he has planned to travel across the state and meet people from all walks of life to understand their issues before entering the political arena.
