Anandaraj to enter politics

Special Correspondent

PONDICHERRY: Film actor Anandaraj said today that he would join a political party soon and contest the Assembly poll due next year in Pondicherry.

He told newsmen here on Wednesday that he had completed all the formalities of having his name registered in the electoral rolls in the Union Territory. Expressing displeasure over the attitude of some party functionaries to `intimidate' film actors with their own views on what movies should portray, Mr. Anandaraj said he would not disclose now which party he would join. He agreed with the plea of some outfits that the benefits of reservation for SC should be available to the Adi Dravidars of Pondicherry origin on priority basis.
