Announcing the list of candidates at massive public meeting here on Sunday night, Haasan said that his name did not figure in it as there were large number of nominations in his name from almost all the constituencies.

He stated that there was no cause for worry since all the candidates were his faces.

Launched a year ago, the MNM is meant to focus on the fight against corruption and development of rural Tamil Nadu.
