Actor Kamal Haasan has wondered why no political party or individual haven’t demanded resignation of chief-minister Edapadi K. Palaniswami in a scenario wherein the State has been witnessing corruption in all Govt. sectors.
“I sincerely feel the chief-minister should have resigned on his own, owing moral responsibility for the corrupt acts of Ministers and others under his control,” Kamal has tweeted, continuing his war of words on Twitter against the present Edapadi K. Palaniswami-led regime.
State’s Ministers have been repeatedly giving it ‘back’ to Kamal Haasan for his tirade against them and the chief-minister. A few Ministers had openly challenged Kamal o take the field (enter politics) to get a fitting reply to his allegations of corruption. In a manner which is evasive and typical of his style for the past many decades, Kamal replied stating that he had been in politics right from the he started to cast votes.
Kamal had also asked his fans to send to him incidents of corruption taking place in their respective localities. This prompted political observers to predict that Kamal’s political entry was imminent. After dealing with the ‘Ministers’, Kamal appears to have decided to take on the chief-minister directly for the first time.
“Whenever there is a major tragedy or complaint of corruption, the chief-minister of the concerned State puts in papers; however, I don’t understand why this hasn’t occurred in Tamil Nadu. Despite the repeated acts of corruption by his Ministerial colleagues and others, the CM hasn’t tendered his resignation. Why haven’t the political parties and individuals demanded his resignation?
“My objective is to see the State excel in all the sectors; who has the courage to strengthen my voice? If the DMK, AIADMK, etc. can act tools in this regard, they are welcome. If they had become blunt, I would have to look for an alternative,” Kamal said via his latest tweets.
