Addressing the Republic Summit 2018, organized by the Republic Media Network, the actor turned politician reiterated that he will not support Mahagathbandhan only to topple a particular individual or government. “All options are open for Makkal Needhi Maiam” he added.
When asked about the mega electoral battle of 2019, the Ulagnayagan opined that irrespective of political development, Nation building is highly important than any other narrative.
The award-winning actor suggested that the government and other stakeholders should revisit the decision of playing national anthem in the theatres. The Makkal Needhi Maiam head advised people to respect diversity and dissent for vibrant dialogue. On this occasion, the maverick actor shared the stage with Union textiles minister Smriti Irani.
