Ready to ally with Cong if it cuts ties with DMK: Kamal
CHENNAI:Actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan said his party Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) is ready to join hands with the Congress if they cut their alliance with the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) in the upcoming 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
Kamal Haasan said his party will ensure a corruption-free government. After completing his tours in Tiruchirappalli and Coimbatore, the actor who is currently taking part in a rally in Salem, said in an interview to a private television channel on Friday that MNM was ready to align with Congress but not with the DMK. “DMK and AIADMK are our common enemy and we are maintaining an equal distance from both of them. We will not join hands with either DMK or AIADMK. However, we are not against Congress. If the Congress departs from its alliance with DMK, we are ready to join hands with them,” Kamal said. DMK said it would not pay too much attention to Kamal’s statement and emphasised that DMK-Congress alliance is continuing. “The Congress and DMK alliance continues for now. We haven’t changed our stand,” said TKS Elangovan, Rajya Sabha MP and DMK’s principal spokesperson.
