Makkal Needhi Maiyam(MNM) had already started preparations for the assembly elections .Party members requested Kamal Haasan to contest from Paramakudi, which is his home town. However, there was no nod from the party president to the proposal.
Party president is keen on going it alone without any alliance in 2021 assembly polls. He felt that rather than joining hands with Dravidian parties , it is better for him to go independently. However, he clarified that all decisions regarding candidates and alliances will be taken at an appropriate time. Kamal Haasan’s decision to go it alone came after messages in social media which said that Tamil Nadu is looking for a change rather than continuation of Dravidian politics.
Party workers opined that the decision of Rajinikanth backing out from politics may help MNM and increase chances of winning more seats. They also felt that Rajinikanth may help his film friend by giving support and the party is serious on capitalizing on Rajini factor.
