COIMBATORE: State Minister of Municipal Administration, S P Velumani on Saturday threatened that an audit would be conducted to check whether actor Kamal Hassan has paid taxes for his films.

This was his response to Kamal Hassan’s comments that the Government was corrupt. Speaking to the reporters at Coimbatore Medical College Hospital after meeting victims of an accident, which happened on Friday night, Minister Velumani condemned actor Kamal Hassan for his speech.

Likewise, Lok Sabha Deputy Speaker M Thambidurai, who arrived at the Coimbatore Airport on Saturday morning, also criticised Kamal for his comments on the system.

“If Kamal wants to speak about the system, let him join the politics and then speak about the corrupt politics. If not, let him file a case in the court legally and prove the allegations instead of stating baseless allegations on the system and Government,” Thambidurai said.
