Kamal breaks silence, says mulling political plunge due to compulsion

Chennai, Sep 14 (UNI) Amid rumours that he will take the political
plunge, actor Kamal Haasan has finally broken his silence saying
he was thinking on those lines due to compulsion.
In an interview, he said he was seriously considering forming his
own party.
The actor-directed called as 'Ulaga Nayagan' by his fans, said ''Yes
I am thinking on those lines — not out of choice, but due to compulsion!
Which existing political party can provide me with a platform or an
ideology that will match my reformatory goals in politics''.
The actor has been highly critical of the ruling AIADMK ever since
the death of former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa.
He is very active on Twitter and minces no words when condemning
the infighting and the functions of the government.
The national award winning actor-director recently alleged that there
was rampant corruption in every department of the government, drawing
critical remarks from several Ministers.
Meanwhile in the interview, the actor, said ''When I am elected, I’d like
to be held accountable by the voter. Don’t vote me in and then wait for
five years to vote me out! Sack me immediately if I not deliver.''
''This is the only way a change in the politics of the country can come
about. Why only Tamil Nadu? You may ask. Well, I have to start somewhere'',
the Viswaroopam actor said.
''First, I must clean my own home, before I start on the neighbours'',
he added.
The actor known for expressing his ideas loud and clear, said ''the
ouster of Sasikala is a solid step forward. But it’s just the beginning''.
''I was extremely vocal about getting rid of her. Now that it has
happened, I feel a little more encouraged in my belief that the politics
of the state can change. And I want to bring about that change, no
matter how slowly it may be'', Kamal Haasan said.
