Kamal Haasan’s MNM Discusses Possible Alliance Talks with DMK Amidst Speculations

Haasan clarified that MNM hasn't aligned itself with the opposition INDIA bloc when asked directly about it.


Speculations have emerged suggesting that Kamal Haasan’s Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) party might be engaged in alliance discussions with the DMK, led by Chief Minister M K Stalin, for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Addressing reporters in Chennai during the 7th-anniversary celebrations of MNM, Haasan neither confirmed nor denied the speculations but emphasized that his party’s focus remains on supporting any bloc that prioritizes the nation’s welfare without engaging in local feudal politics.

Haasan clarified that MNM hasn’t aligned itself with the opposition INDIA bloc when asked directly about it. He emphasized the importance of setting aside party politics and focusing on the nation’s interests, stating that MNM would support any entity that demonstrates a selfless commitment to the country.

MNM, established by Kamal Haasan on February 21, 2018, advocates for centrist policies centered around social justice, economic development, and environmental sustainability. Despite positioning itself as an alternative to the dominant Dravidian parties in Tamil Nadu, MNM’s electoral performance in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections and state assembly polls fell short of expectations.

Regarding potential political alliances ahead of the forthcoming general elections, Haasan mentioned that discussions are ongoing, promising to inform the media of any significant developments in this regard.
