The political turmoil in Tamil Nadu has prompted veteran actor Kamal Haasan to exhort people to become “incorruptible” themselves rather than blaming politicians.
In a series of tweets, the 62-year-old actor said the entire country is with the state in the ongoing stand-off between AIADMK leaders O Panneerselvam and Sasikala.
“We’ve wasted our freedom years gambling our fanchise on wrong& corrupt politicians. Let’s stop blaming them. Lets become incorruptable (sic).
“Don’t break TN in to a country. I promise, All India will fight for TN in a civil war of Ahinsa. None might die but the ignorant will come alive,” Haasan wrote.
A political turmoil was triggered in the state after sacked Treasurer and Chief Minister Panneerselvam revolted against party General Secretary Sasikala saying she has no powers to sack him as Treasurer and she herself was elected on a temporary basis in view of the extraordinary situation faced by the party after Jayalalithaa’s demise.
Amid the row, 131 MLAs attended Sasikala-chaired meeting to discuss the fallout of the revolt by Panneerselvam.
