Trichy (Tamil Nadu):
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi Palaniswami on Thursday slammed Makkal Needhi Maiam chief and actor Kamal Haasan for entering politics.
“At the age of 70, he (Kamal Haasan) is hosting Bigg Boss. How will it be if people hosting Bigg Boss would come into politics? His job is to spoil good families. If kids watch that, they will get spoiled. Good families will also get spoiled,” said the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister.
Mr Palaniswami’s party All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIDMK) was founded by MG Ramachandran who was also an actor turned politician. Later the party was led by late J Jayalalithaa, a former actor, who served six terms as the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.
Meanwhile, Mr Haasan, who kick-started his party’s campaign for the upcoming Tamil Nadu Assembly polls on Sunday, had confirmed about contesting the 2021 elections. He added he will announce the constituency from which he will contest in the coming days.
