Chennai, Feb 11 (BPNS)
Super Star of the South Indian film industry and founder president of Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM), Kamal Haasan will be campaigning for the Congress candidate, EVKS Elangovan at Erode East constituency on February 19th.
The Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) leader has already announced his support for the DMK-led alliance candidate for the Erode East by-election.
