BJP has filed a complaint against Makkal Needhi Maiam chief Kamal Haasan’s daughter Shruti Haasan, accusing her of trespassing into a polling booth where she was accompanying her father for booth visit in Coimbatore South. Kamal Haasan, after casting his vote in Chennai with his daughters Shruti and Akshara, headed straight to Coimbatore South, from where he is contesting the Tamil Nadu assembly elections.
Kamal Haasan was visiting polling booths to take stock of the voting. Later he raised a complaint with the Election Commission against BJP, accusing the party of promising to distribute the money among voters on winning the Tamil Nadu polls.
Now, BJP district president Nandakumar on behalf of BJP national women’s wing leader Vanathi Srinivasan, who is also the candidate from Coimbatore South constituency, wrote to the district election officer demanding that criminal action be taken against actress Sruthi Haasan for visiting the polling booths. BJP has said there is a rule that no one should go to the polling booths except the booth agents.
