Kamal's condition to Rajni for alliance

Kamal Hassan talks about the condition of Tamil Nadu and alliance with Rajinikanth

Accusing top Tamil actor Rajnikanth of having "a hue of saffron in his politics", Ace actor Kamal Haasan Sunday said that his politic would certainly not be "saffron". "With the vision of making them the best villages in the world", Hasaan said in his key note address at the annual Indian conference of the Harvard University.

"I am announcing a plan of adopting a village in every district of Tail Nadu..."

Kamal opened his discourse stating that he comes from Tamil Nadu which boasts of the oldest language, rich in cultural heritage, pioneer of architecture and worldwide commerce, upholder of social justice and other innumerable achievements.

In his keynote address, the actor said, "The apathy shown by the political class on the financial health and management, poor management of waterways and the gradual lowering of the bar in every aspect of society have affected the State".

Actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan announced his website,, an initiative that he said was meant to build model villages in all districts in the State.

But, he quickly referred to the stark differences between them - on religion and on "saffron", which was interpreted as Rajinikanth's inclination towards the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party).

Superstars Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan both have already taken plunge into politics.

"My politics will definitely not be saffron", Haasan said on the possibility of a political alliance with Rajinikanth.

In his post-event interaction with the press in Ambattur, Vijayakanth also welcomed the NEET examination and said that it would ensure people can not buy medical seats for lakhs of rupees. "If there is no majority, it's the people's verdict. Only time will answer all these questions", Rajinikanth said.

Haasan said Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party head Arvind Kejriwal met him in Chennai and offered an alliance with his party.

"Demanding good governance is my right and no government need take umbrage", Mr Haasan said. "My true goal today is to challenge the status quo and the mediocrity in politics that is plaguing the State", he said.

Confident of raising funds for the elections, Haasan called upon the Tamil community across the world to come up with ideas. "I do not know about jihad, but love would triumph hate".

Quoting Mahatma Gandhi, he said that the primary focus of his political journey will be developing the villages.
