The website of actor Kamal Haasan’s party Makkal Needhi Maiam has been hacked. This cyber attack on the website was discovered after a post on the website stated that the party would merge with the Congress party. It was titled ‘Big announcement for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections by Makkal Needhi Maiam.” It further stated that the formal merger with the Congress would take place on January 30th 2023.
The website has been shut down for maintenance. Spokesperson of the MNM Murali Abbas told reporters that there are no plans of merger with the Congress and that the website has been hacked. The Twitter handle of the party has also been hacked.
Recently, Kamal Haasan joined Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra in Delhi and marched along with him. According to Kamal Haasan, the yatra was one beyond politics.
