CHENNAI: The war of words between Kamal Haasan and senior members of cabinet continued for another day, with BJP leaders, too, joining forces to attack the actor for his comments against regime in TN.
However, refusing to back down, Kamal took to social media on Thursday evening, pointing out the ongoing trouble with NEET and medical admission, and the large number of dengue cases, to remind the government that the common man would ask the regime to leave the stage if it did not care for them.
“DMK working president MK Stalin, rebel AIADMK leader O Panneerselvam and Kamal are working together to defame the government,” charged Finance Minister D Jayakumar.
Speaking to reporters at the Chennai Airport, Jayakumar also took a dig at Kamal’s claim of being part of the anti-Hindi imposition agitation, asking whether he stopped acting in Hindi films.
His cabinet colleagues,including OS Manian and Sellur K Raju, too, continued the attack against the actor. Meanwhile, BJP State president Tamilisai Soundararajan and the party’s national secretary H Raja, too, joined the fray in attacking the actor for his comments on prevailing corruption in Tamil Nadu and his recalling the anti-Hindi agitation.
But the actor who has become outspoken in his comments and criticisms in the recent past, remained irrepressible. A high school dropout may not comprehend the trouble surrounding NEET, but that was not the case with dengue, he noted in a tweet. “My child almost died of it. Work on it TN Govt. If unable move aside (sic),” he said explaining how a common man would respond to the issues facing him.
