Madurai: Actor Kamal Haasan on Wednesday launched his political party, naming it 'Makkal Needhi Maiam' and unveiled its flag that symbolises the strength of unity.

"I am not your leader, I am your tool... This gathering is full of leaders," he said moments before announcing the party's name that roughly translates to "Centre for People's Justice."

The party flag was unveiled just before Haasan announced the name of his party with a brief pause heightening the dramatic effect as the huge crowd roared its approval.

The flag in white background has six hands joining together with shades of red over three hands and rest with white along with a star in between surrounded by a star like background in black.

Following are some of the reactions to the launch of MNM:

- Kamal Haasan is dear to me and people of Kerala. He has been a unifying force between Tamil Nadu and Kerala and has proven his integrity in social and political reforms, said Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan.

- "It will not bloom, nor give fragrance and it will continue to be a paper flower," said Tamil Nadu Fisheries Minister D Jayakumar.

- "Owing to seasonal changes some flowers may suddenly bloom and later wither. Similarly, in Tamil Nadu's political arena too glamorous paper flowers may bloom," said DMK leader MK Stalin.
