Ka­mal ka Ka­maal


THE SU­PER­STAR-TURNED-POLITI­CIAN Ka­mal Has­san has cre­ated quite a stir by dash­ing off an open let­ter to PM Naren­dra Modi ask­ing him to re­solve the Cau­very river wa­ter shar­ing prob­lem. In his let­ter, Ka­mal urged the PM to take prompt ac­tion as the de­lay has caused dis­may among the peo­ple of ‘Tamizh Nadu’. He went on to high­light how the Supreme Court had al­ready ‘per­formed its con­sti­tu­tional role by de­liv­er­ing the judge­ment’ on the mat­ter and now it’s ‘the gov­ern­ment’s turn to per­form its con­sti­tu­tional duty and im­ple­ment the or­der’. Ka­mal also re­minded Modi about his for­mer role as the Chief Min­is­ter of Gu­jarat, where he has al­ready had the ex­pe­ri­ence of wa­ter shar­ing amongst four states through the Nar­mada Con­trol Au­thor­ity. ‘All sec­tions of peo­ple have started to be­lieve that this de­lay is due to en­su­ing elec­tions in Kar­nataka and your Party’s in­ter­est in it. Sir, it is your duty as the Prime Min­is­ter of our coun­try to prove this wrong by im­me­di­ately act­ing as per the Supreme Court or­der’, he wrote. The due wa­ter sup­ply to the Tamil Nadu state as well as some other South­ern states like Ker­ala and Puducherry will ben­e­fit the hap­less farm­ers, and hence, the ag­i­ta­tion. Also in arms with him are many celebs from Mol­ly­wood like di­rec­tor P Bharathi­raja and many other stars and di­rec­tors. Ka­mal is tak­ing his po­lit­i­cal in­ter­ests quite se­ri­ously and is prov­ing to be a true son of the soil in the process.
