After the political launch meeting held in Madurai last month, members of Kamal Haasan’s Makkal Neethi Maiyam (MNM) gear up in Trichy for their mega political rally to be held on April 4. Ponmalai G Corner ground has been selected as the venue and work is picking up pace to gather crowd.
Members of the party have been visiting colleges as they plan to rope in over a lakh people, especially the youth and students but have set a target of two lakh members in Trichy, and so far 58,000 people, mostly youth, have willingly joined MAM. 12 teams have been formed each with 4-5 members to make frequent visits to meet people.
“As youth are showing more interest to our party, we have been approaching them at colleges and propagating the idea of Makkal Neethi Maiyam. We could see excitement in them and we could perhaps reach the two lakh mark before the meeting, said Suresh, the co-ordinator.
Kamal Haasan is very particular about not causing disturbance to general public in any way, has given strict instructions against putting up banners and hoarding in the city, While he has also warned action against those who are found violating norms, said Suresh.
