Rajinikanth silent on Cauvery, several other issues: Kamal

Covai Post Network

Coimbatore: Makkal Neethi Mayyam founder, Kamal Haasan today said Tamil film star Rajinikanth was silent not only on the issue of Cauvery, but several others also.

To a specific question on the silence of his co-star on Cauvery, he told reporters, “This is not the only issue where Rajinikanth has not expressed his opinion. But there are several other issues also and it is not right to point only on one issue.”

On constituting Cauvery Management Board, he said that the ‘political and electoral game’ over the delay should stop and Centre must constitute the board.

Asked whether he was ready to lead a team to talk to Karnataka, he quipped, “They may ask who are you to lead and the only answer will be I am the founder president of MNM.”

If talks brought solutions to the problems, he was ready and not ashamed to talk to both Karnataka and Kerala on the Cauvery and the Bhavani issues, he said, adding that he continued to talk on the issue and one day the ‘voice will get justice’.

However, he said he had not discussed the Bhavani river and check dam issue, when he met Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan. Reiterating his observation that law and order in the State was deteriorating, Kamal said the Government had to take necessary steps in this regard.
