In a bid to draw the centre’s attention to the Cauvery dispute’s impact on Tamil Nadu, actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan released a video message for PM Narendra Modi and asked him to solve the problem. Emphasising the people are more important than elections, the star said that NaMO must ensure that TN gets justice at the earliest.
“Good morning sir. My name is Kamal Haasan. This is an open video to my honourable Prime Minister. I am very sure that you are aware of the crisis that’s stripping Tamil Nadu, and the ongoing agitations, for Cauvery water. I think, with your previous experience with Narmada Water Board Authority, you could easily deliver the justice, that Tamil Nadu is asking for. Both, pandits and pedestrians alike, suspect and believe that this delay in us getting justice is due to the elections in Karnataka.
I want this belief to be dispelled, for, people are more important than elections. Thank you sir! Please do justice, for Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. I am also sending you, an open letter, in case, if I missed out any points, in my anxiety to pass on this. I am sure you will do the needful, and you must. Thank you, Namaste!” said Haasan.
In case you were not aware, Haasan has been extremely vocal about the Cauvery issue for quite some time. In fact, he even attended the recently-held Kollywood protest an made it clear that he would support the fraternity on the issue. Haasan was also one of the first star to react to Cauvery verdict and highlight that it would adversely affect Tamil Nadu.
On the film front, he currently has Vishwaroopam 2 and Indian 2 in his kitty. Vishwaroopam 2 is a spy-thriller and also has Andrea in the lead. On the other hand, Indian 2 is a sequel to Indian and will be helmed by Shankar.
