Kamal's MNM gets  'Torch Light' symbol

The Election Commission of India today allotted the ‘torch light’ symbol to Kamal Haasan’s Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM). The actor-turned-politician tweeted to thank the poll body and said MNM will try to be the torch-bearer of a new era of politics.

MNM thanks the Election Commission for granting us the Battery Torch symbol for the forthcoming elections. So appropriate @maiamofficial will endeavour to be the Torch-Bearer for a new era in TN and Indian politics,' Kamal Haasan tweeted. MNM had approached the Election Commission two weeks ago for the symbol.
