Kamal says MNM will contest in 2019 LS polls alone

Coimbatore: Indicating a shift in its policy to forge alliances, Makkal Needhi Maiam’s chief Kamal Haasan Thursday said his party would contest all the 39 seats in Tamilnadu for the coming Lok Sabha polls on its own.

Speaking to reporters, the actor-politician said, “We are trying to serve good for the people with clean hands. We are trying to keep our hands clean by not allying with any of the Dravidian parties.” He also said his party would contest all the 39 Lok Sabha seats in Tamilnadu and one in Puducherry.

However, he had earlier announced that his party would contest the coming elections in alliance with like-minded parties.

His two-day meeting with the district assembly constituency and area in-charges in Pollachi was centred around the areas that needed to be focused ahead of the elections, he further added.
