Political Parties View Welfare Of People As Alms

By Preeti Sigh On 04 Nov, 2018

Actor-politician Kamal Haasan Sunday slammed "existing political parties and politicians" for viewing welfare as "alms" and charged that they indulge in corruption as if it is their full-time occupation. The Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) founder, in his birthday message to fans and party supporters, exhorted them to take up welfare activities rather than meeting and wishing him. The actor will turn 64 on November 7. Mr Haasan told his supporters that his party's approach to politics was 'devoid' of nepotism and "unnecessary individual praise that is generally associated with politics." "Existing political parties and politicians view people's welfare as alms that are given to the begging people and continue to indulge in corruption as if it is their full-time occupation," he said in a statement. Such entities, he claimed, were "trembling in fear" at the sight of his MNM. Mr Haasan, often critical of the ruling AIADMK on issues like corruption, told his party workers that the MNM has the responsibility of leading the state out of this 'unprecedented dark age that we find ourselves in.' "A state that is free of corruption, excelling in education, praiseworthy in agriculture, respecting women and ripe for development will be born soon," he said.
