MADURAI: A slipper that fell at the crowd that accumulated to listen to Makkal Needhi Maiyam president Kamal Haasan all over his public meeting in Thiruparankundram constituency on Wednesday night led to a flutter. The actor-turned-politician was campaigning for his birthday celebration candidate P Sakthivel.

Kamal started his marketing campaign at 5pm from Thoppur, however his next conferences at 4 spots — Periyar Nagar, Samanatham, Panaiyur and Chinthamani — were cancelled without prior announcement. He returned to marketing campaign around 8pm at Villapuram the place the cadres controlled to collect a large crowd. There was a scuffle after a slipper was hurled around 8.30pm which fell at the crowd. Soon, a bunch of men started shouting slogans against the actor near his degree. Kamal looked unperturbed by way of the action and mentioned, “we don’t have to fret about it, they (police) will handle it,’’ and continued his speech.

Police took away about ten other folks for wondering. Police assets mentioned that the slipper had best fallen into the crowd and no longer at the degree or near Kamal Haasan.
