Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) president Kamal Haasan Wednesday announced the first list of candidates who will be contesting on the ‘Torch Light’ symbol for the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections.
The candidate list for the rest of the Lok Sabha constituencies as well as for bypolls to the 18 assembly constituencies in the state shall be announced on March 24 at Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu.
While releasing the list of candidates, Haasan said veteran actor Nassar’s wife, Kameela Nassar, will contest from Chennai Central, whereas retired IPS officer A G Mourya would be contesting from North Chennai constituency, Dr. M Loganathan will contest from Thiruvallur (R) and Dalit Munnetra Kazhagam’s Anbin Poyyamozhi has been allocated Villupuram constituency.
“The initial list consists of people who are not money-minded and are interested only in social service,” Haasan said.
MNM’s initial list of candidates comprises three doctors, a retired District Judge and a retired IPS officer.
When asked why MNM delayed the process of releasing the candidates’ list, Haasan remarked, “The delay is because we conducted the interview process for candidates in a democratic manner. After the interviews got over, we went through a huge process in selecting the candidates. We wanted to field our best ones.”
Kamal added that some key names will pop-up in the next list which is scheduled to be released on March 24th.
Meanwhile one of the BJP member and Bigg Boss contestant Gayathri Raguramm has posted a controversial statement against Kamal Haasan in her official twitter account. She alleged that Kamal has taken all the limelight as always without showing the faces of the candidates. She also said that she could not believe those candidates them just because they are educated.
Her tweet read as “Why hasn’t he introduced his candidates to world ahead even once. He had taken all the limelight like alwAys. We don’t know anyone how can we trusts them on based of their education or qualifications? Will they be genuine or just for the sake of it. What’s the ideology manifesto?”

For this many of her followers expressed their thoughts in various way. Most of them doubted as if it is the effect of Bigg Boss show where most of the people trolled Gayathri due to screening of short film which was displayed by Kamal Haasan, the host of the show.
