Kamal Haasan to contest TN polls from Coimbatore South

86

Actor-turned-politician and Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) chief Kamal Haasan will contest from Coimbatore South in the April 6 Tamil Nadu Assembly elections.

This was announced by the MNM in a statement here.

This seat is a bone of contention between the AIADMK and the BJP with AIADMK cadres and leaders coming out in street against the seat being allocated to the BJP, which is likely to field its women’s wing President, Vanathi Srinivasan, from there.

The AIADMK cadres have been demanding the seat for sitting MLA Amman K. Arjunan.
