Kamal Haasan urges fans to take up welfare activities on his 64th birthday
Ahead of his 64th birthday, Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan has urged his fans to take up welfare activities and conduct medical camps, particularly in areas affected by H1N1 and dengue instead of visiting him to wish him personally. The actor's birthday falls on November 7.
As part of his birthday wish list, the actor requested his supporters and fans to conduct general medical camps and blood donation camps in their respective areas between November 7-10.
In his birthday message to fans, the Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) founder told his supporters that his party's approach to politics was "devoid of nepotism and unnecessary individual praise that is generally associated with politics".
He requested his fans and supporters to launch a campaign to promote organ donation as it will continue to serve society even after one's death. "The party and I, personally have been involved in an organ donation drive in the past and this time, we plan to take up this programme on a grander scale," the actor-turned-politician said in a statement.
He slammed the existing political parties and politicians for viewing welfare as 'alms' and said that they indulge in corruption as if it's their full-time occupation.
He further reiterated that the focus of Makkal Needhi Maiam is people's welfare and the action of the office bearers should reflect party's motive. "Let us do our duty and create history. Our political ascent should translate into Tamil Nadu's ascent," he added.
Meanwhile, fans have started celebrating the birthday of Kamal Haasan in style. Several posters hailing him as the next chief minister of Tamil Nadu can be seen on the walls of Chennai.
