Actor and Vice President of Tamil Nadu Nadigar Sangam Ponvannan resigns

Actor Vishal’s foray into politics caused widespread tumult across the State. Following the rejection of his nomination citing forgery of two proposer’s signatures on his application, a highly-charged political drama ensued. The actor seems unfazed though and has claimed that he will return to politics soon and that there are more pressing issues, like the situation in Kanyakumari, that need focus now.

Shortly after Vishal’s statement, renowned actor Mr. Ponvannan resigned from his post of vice-president in Tamil Nadu Nadigar Sangam, quoting ‘personal reasons’ as the cause for leaving.

The resignation of Mr. Ponvannan, a key figure in Nadigar Sangam since 2015, is definitely a blow for the committee and actor Vishal’s political aspirations.
