The actor also reported that he would stick to politics even if he loses the election, he said,

“They are with me for the past 37 years. At my instruction, they have engaged number of younger people in our welfare movement over the years including about 250 lawyers. All would become volunteers.”

The veteran actor, who is forming a new political party this month, added,

“I am earnest. I am not here to improve my bank account. I could have led a happy, retired, popular life. My decision to come into politics is as I do not want to die merely as an actor. I will die in the service of people and that I have promised myself.”
