Well-known actor-politician Kamal Haasan took the first vaccine dose against the coronavirus.
While doing so, Hassan launched a sharp attack at the AIADMK.
“Immunisation of the body immediately (and) vaccination against corruption next month. Get ready.”
Hassan was referring to the April 6 Tamil Nadu assembly polls where his political party, Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM), will contest its first-ever assembly election.
He tweeted in Tamil:
“I took the coronavirus vaccine at Sri Ramachandra Hospital. Those who care not only for themselves but also for others should get vaccinated. Immunisation of the body immediately (and) vaccination against corruption next month. Get ready.”
In February, Hassan’s party said it was accepting online applications for selecting candidates.
Potential candidates must pay ₹ 25,000 and added that non-party members could also apply or be nominated.
