Stop blaming politicians, become incorruptible: Kamal Haasan tells people
Chennai - 08 Feb 2017 21:32 IST
Reacting to the political turmoil in Tamil Nadu, actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan on Wednesday said there was no use blaming corrupt politicians and suggested that people should become incorruptible.
"We've wasted our freedom years gambling our franchise on wrong and corrupt politicians. Let's stop blaming them. Let's become incorruptible," he wrote.
Kamal Haasan also said the entire country would fight for Tamil Nadu in a "civil war of ahimsa". "None might die but the ignorant will come alive," he added.
Calling out his fellow film stars to react on the stand-off between AIADMK leaders O Panneerselvam and VK Sasikala, he tagged actor R Madhavan in a tweet.
"Madhavan, please talk on crisis in Tamil Nadu. We have a voice with decibel levels not conducive to bad politics. You can also disagree but do it loud please," he wrote.
In reply to Haasan's tweet, Madhavan shared a series of posts. He said: "Sir, we have always discussed how TN should be the best state in the world, leave alone India. With the talent and potential we have, we should have been an example to the world."
Madhavan highlighted that the state needs "right leadership and right intent to harness that volcanic expertise".
"This is the time we nudge in the right direction. The whole state needs to believe that and make themselves heard. And I am very sure that will happen as this is the right time. Speak up folks. This is your time to be heard."
Haasan also clarified that his account hasn't been hacked. "Just because I'm not saying expected things doesn't mean I'm bought or hacked. Agree to disagree. I like you, I am my own man," he tweeted.
