Makkal Needhi Maiam founder Kamal Haasan has criticised the Tamil Nadu government. Haasan has condemned the violence in Tuticorin and faulted the Police who have opened fire. The actor has demanded an action against the Police and also sought action against those people who directed the cops to open fire. Kamal Haasan has asked the government why it remained mum when there was a protest for a long time. It was a months-long protest demanding the closure of Vedanta's Sterlite Copper unit in Tuticorin.
