The screen shots shared by H Raja’s twitter handle and Facebook page suggests that the BJP National Secretary has been inducted into MNM’s basic party membership with a membership id of ‘TNH8AD5725’. Surprisingly the email which was sent to [email protected] was from the email id [email protected]’, it had addressed H Raja as H Raja Sharma.

Earlier BJP state president Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan had expressed shock over her being enrolled in actor-politician Kamal Haasan’s Makkal Needhi Maiam party as well. She claimed she had received a message from MNM stating she has been enrolled in that party.

“I was shocked to get an e-mail a week ago which said I have become a member of his party (MNM). They have even sent membership number (TN TOF 92829),”. The mail, Dr. Tamilisai said, landed in her mailbox when she was away in New Delhi.

In response to BJP’s allegation, the official twitter handle of Makkal Needhi Maiam (@maiamofficial), had put out a statement defending their membership drive.

This has not been the first controversy that Kamal has courted ever since he had entered into the Indian Political scenario. Earlier All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam’s (AIADMK) IT wing Joint Secretary Hari Prabhakaran has alleged that Kamal and his party for getting funding from Christian Church Mafia. Hari has come out with posters that were printed in September 2017, a Tamil Nadu based Christian group which goes by the name of “Missionary Dhoni”, had given full support to Kamal in it’s newsletters.
