Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal is expected to meet Kamal Haasan in Chennai today.
Haasan, in turn, is expected to join politics any day now.
The Indian Express quoted a source close to Kejriwal as saying, “Arvind Kejriwal will be travelling to Chennai Thursday to meet Kamal Haasan. While the exact agenda of the meeting can’t be revealed, it will be political in nature.”
Kejriwal is expected to land in Chennai at 11.30 am.
Haasan is expected to launch his political party by the end of the month with an eye on local body elections expected in November.
The Express quoted an AAP source as saying: “Haasan has made it very clear that his stance is against the communal forces operating within the country. Ahead of the local body elections in Tamil Nadu, the two (Kejriwal and Haasan) are likely to have an exchange of notes over the problems faced within the country and how best to tackle them.”
The Express also added an AAP source as saying that the meeting is also indicative of Kejriwal’s own “attempt to increase the scope of his role in the national Opposition space.”
