Chennai: Under attack from the ruling AIADMK (Amma) for graft charges against its government, actor Kamal Haasan today said his fans have “exposed” the supply of “rotten eggs” to ‘anganwadis’ (daycare centres) in Perambalur district in Tamil Nadu.
Haasan’s claim comes days after state Finance Minister D Jayakumar’s poser to him on what welfare measure he had taken for the people of the state through his fan clubs.
“Perambalur expose of rotten eggs given to children deserves praise. Pls consult our in house lawyers be4 exposing crime. Dont break laws (sic),” the national award-winning actor tweeted.
The actor’s fans had in July reportedly made visits to some ‘anganwadi’ centres and found ‘rotten’ eggs being supplied there.
Jayakumar, a senior leader in the AIADMK (Amma) camp, had on Sunday sought to know what welfare activities the actor had taken up for the people of the state during the 2004 tsunami tragedy and the devastating floods of 2015.
Ever since Kamal Haasan had made allegations of corruption in the government, he has been targeted by the ruling dispensation, with Chief Minister K Palaniswami himself asking the national award winning actor to take the political plunge to get proper response.
He had last month asked his fans to use social media to lodge complaints about corruption.
Local Administration Minister SP Velumani had sought proof for Haasan’s allegations and had asked if the actor was ready to furnish tax details of his films.
The opposition parties, including DMK, have backed Haasan and urged the government to respond to his charges of corruption rather than ‘targeting’ him.
