'Deliver justice to TN':Kamal Haasan's message to Modi on Cauvery issue

Just as PM Modi was to arrive men with black flags climbed on top of hoardings and released black flags and balloons outside Chennai Airport

In an open letter, Kamal questioned if the Centre's delay in constituting the CWMB is aimed at gaining benefits in the coming Assembly elections in Karnataka, where the BJP is a contender. "I want this belief to be dispelled, as people are more important than elections", Kamal stated.

Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) president Kamal Haasan urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to solve the Cauvery water dispute between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka at the earliest. He added that "people are more important than elections". "I think with your previous experience for Narmada Water Board Authority, you could easily deliver the justice that Tamil Nadu is seeking for". In the video that runs for a little over a minute, Kamal Haasan, speaking in English, appeals to Modi to deliver justice to Tamil Nadu and Karnataka on the Cauvery issue. He further said there was a perception in Tamil Nadu that the delay was due to political compulsions associated with the election in Karnataka.

The Centre's failure to constitute CMB led to various protests in Tamil Nadu.
