Actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan has stated that he won’t feel cowed down or threatened by the continuing hurdles and stumbling blocks that are placed purposely on his path by ‘vested interests’.
Kamal, who launched his political outfit Makkal Needhi Maiyyam recently, has been visiting colleges and other educational institutions apparently targetting the young and first-time voters to drum up support for his political outfit. He spoke amid the students of a private engineering college yesterday at Ponneri, Tiruvallur.
“I face many blocks and hurdles in my path, apparently from vested interests, in visiting schools/colleges and talking to you (students). It’s time that you do what I do and I do what you have been doing. We are about to embark on a war and should remain sans anxiety and fear; students should be aware of what happens in politics. If they do so, they would blossom into good politicians in future.
“Once they are out of college, they find themselves alone in a world full of corruption and scams. I don’t like people falling at my feet and feel scared when I think about the expectations people have from me,” he said and added on another note that Govt. of Tamil Nadu should possess the right to decide what students in the should study.
