Talks for an alliance between the Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) party and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) have begun as Kamal Haasan, the president of MNM has initiated the discussion with AAP leaders for the upcoming state polls. The alliance can result in the entry of Arvind Kejriwal's party in South India. Kejriwal and Hassan had met a few times in the past when the Delhi CM attended Haasan's formal launch of the MNM. MNM has also started looking for candidates for the elections that will happen soon in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry and will begin accepting online applications from party members soon. MNM has an 'anti corruption' strategy for this year's elections.
