Veteran actor Kamal Haasan Wednesday launched his new political party, Makkal Needhi Maiam, which roughly means Centre for People’s Justice, at Madurai’s Othakadai Ground. He also unveiled the party’s symbol — six arms interlinked around a star.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal accompanied him to the event. Marking his entry into politics, Haasan said, “This is a party for the people. We have a responsibility. This isn’t a one day show.”

Kamal Haasan kicked off his day-long yatra from the house of late President A P J Abdul Kalam in Rameswaram. He travelled through Ramanathapuram, his hometown, before culminating in Madurai.

Haasan’s plan to interact with students of Kalam’s school was cancelled this morning due to opposition from the government and certain Hindu groups. Haasan addressed three public meetings before his Madurai rally.
