Tamil outfits and political parties are indulging in several protests urging Central Government to form Cauvery Management Board. Adding fuel to the fire, Governor Banwarilal Purohit appointed M K Surappa from Karnataka as the Vice Chancellor of Anna University.
Reacting to this appointment, actor turned politician Kamal Haasan tweeted “We asked for water from Karnataka and we get a vice-chancellor from Karnataka instead. The gulf between people and the government cannot be more obvious. Are they taunting us so we react adversely? I wonder what their game plan is”.
Kamal also smartly branded his good friend Rajinikanth as a Kannadiga in the next tweet, the actor wrote “Mr.Nagesh One of my Gurus. Mrs. S Mr. Rajkumar anna Mrs. Sarojadevi and my friends Mr. Rajnikanth and Mr. Ambresh are my own.That was a humorous quip at the central and state governments Not a swipe at the Chancellor. Nevertheless, TN needs water”.
Fans of Superstar Rajinikanth are unhappy with Kamal Haasan’s tweet, a fan named Balaji quickly responded “How much ever people try to brand @Rajinikanth as an outsider, it’ll not wash with our Tamil people. He’s been accepted as one our own by the majority of Tamils worldwide. That line of attack against his political foray will be a fool’s errand. Nevertheless, TN needs water.”
