CHENNAI:  All these days, actor Kamal Haasan has given a clear hint on entering politics—during his protracted tirade against the alleged corruption in the AIADMK government. But ‘when’ is a speculation for everyone. He has also showed his willingness to work with Rajinikanth if he plunges into the political arena.Earlier this week, Haasan confirmed that he was considering launching his own political party. He said the 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. “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 TTV Dhinakran who have been holed up in resorts to prevent horse trading. When 19 party MLAs revoalted against CM, they were all initially put up at a resort in Puducherry. Later they were shifted to Coorg in Karnataka.

He allegedly criticised Chief Minister E Palaniswami’s government for doing very little to curb crime and corruption in the state.
Unlike Rajnikanth, who has kept fans guessing with ambiguous remarks on when he will join politics, Haasan has sent out unmissable signals that his political debut will happen soon.
