Why Kamal Hassan looks promising?Kamal Hassan is a superb actor, who hails from a small town in a backward district. Though he was born a Tamil Brahmin, he is an atheist and has openly declared that he is one.
He now has started a political party. When everyone was thinking that he would align with either of the two major political parties, that is , DMK or the AIADMK, he has said that he would go it alone and not align with either of these parties. He is correct in calling them corrupt parties.
However, Kamal seems to be on the right path. Actually, at the moment the DMK seems to be very strong. It's leader Stalin, the son of the former iron man of the DMK, the late M. Karunanidhi, is shaping up quite well. Not many understand that Stalin, as Mayor did superb work. His close friend, Mr. M.Subramaniam, who was also mayor during the DMK regime built superb bridges in Chennai and today, the traffic in Chennai is far more smoother than other cities only because of solid work done by the DMK. Apart from that, the Oragadam and Sriperambadur belts were developed only by the DMK, offering direct employment to rural youth in numerous villages. The hundreds of buses that ply to different organizations in Sriperambadur, is testimony to this fact.
On the contrary, the AIADMK, was and is the most corrupted party in India. Each minister is at least worth one thousand crores. Given this scenario, even if the DMK is very strong now, Kamal Hassan is a very positive new development. He never accepts anything in black money. He might act in just one or two movies.
He is a real politician to watch. DMK is less corrupt than AIADMK. This is the simple truth. One only wishes that Kamal Hassan builds a good party for the long term.
