Rajinikanth silent on various issues, says Kamal Haasan

Kamal Haasan

Coimbatore: Actor-turned-politician and "Makkal Needhi Maiam" founder Kamal Haasan on Monday said his contemporary actor Rajinikanth, who is also set to launch his political party, has not reacted on various matters and it was wrong to single out his "silence" on the Cauvery issue.

Haasan, who had met Rajinikanth before launching his party, was replying to a specific question on Rajinikanth maintaining "silence" on the Cauvery water sharing issue with Karnataka.

"This is not the only issue on which Rajinikanth has not expressed his opinion".

Rajinikanth has already courted controversy since he officially became a politician.

"He has been non-reactive about many subjects, so we can't really point to one topic and talk about it", Kamal Haasan told reporters in Chennai. Jayalalithaa is no more and Karunanidhi is ill.

He condemned the defacement of statues of leaders in Tamil Nadu and other parts of the country, but said he was against erection of such statues.

In an interaction with the TV channel News 18 Tamil Nadu after giving away the "Uzhavan Virudhugal" to recognise farmers achievements under different categories in Erode on Sunday evening, Kamal, taking a wide range of questions, said in a word MNM's core socio-political objective is "ensuring people's welfare". "I did not come to Gandhi through his adulators, but it was through his detractors and critics that I came to Gandhi and today I take pride in saying I am a student of Mahatma Gandhi". Kamal Haasan in the past also said that an alliance with Rajinikanth could also not be ruled out, unless his colour is "saffron", representing the BJP.
