Ka­mal strikes again, tells govt to ap­ply ‘no work, no pay’ rule to MLAs

The New Indian Express - - CHENNAI -

AC­TOR Ka­mal Haasan has said 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.

Re­cently the ac­tor has been po­lit­i­cally ac­tive and has spo­ken out against cor­rup­tion in gov­ern­ment. Spec­u­la­tion is rife that he is set to make an en­try into pol­i­tics. “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 re­volted against CM, they were all ini­tially put up at a re­sort in Puducherry. Later they were shifted to Coorg in Kar­nataka. Bar­ring one MLA who joined the Palaniswami camp, the rest con­tinue to be loyal to Dhi­nakaran. This, of course, comes af­ter the in­fa­mous stint that MLAs had at a re­sort at Koo­vathur be­fore the cru­cial Fe­bru­ary 18 trust vote of the in­cum­bent Palaniswami gov­ern­ment.
