Actor Kamal Haasan strikes again, tells government to apply ‘no work, no pay’ rule to MLAs

CHENNAI: Actor Kamal Haasan has said elected representatives should also be subjected to the “no work, no pay” principle that was doled out to government employees and teachers who struck work.
Recently the actor has been politically active and has spoken out against corruption in government. Speculation is rife that he is set to make an entry into politics. “No work no pay only for Govt. Employees? How about horse trading politicians languishing in resorts?,” his tweet read.
Haasan was referring to some of the AIADMK MLAs aligned with T T V Dhinakran who have been holed up in resorts to prevent horse trading. When 19 party MLAs revolted against CM, they were all initially put up at a resort in Puducherry. Later they were shifted to Coorg in Karnataka. Barring one MLA who joined the Palaniswami camp, the rest continue to be loyal to Dhinakaran.
This, of course, comes after the infamous stint that MLAs had at a resort at Koovathur before the crucial February 18 trust vote of the incumbent Palaniswami government.
