Versatile Tamil actor Kamal Haasan has raised his voice along with millions of Tamils by backing O Panneerselvam to continue as chief minister of Tamil Nadu.
Speaking to media, he questioned “Why not let Panneerselvam go on for some time? He has done his job fairly well. If the people do not like him, they have the mandate to throw him out of power.”
“We are not sheep, we don’t want to be shepherded,” Haasan said in a strong criticism of the AIADMK and the Tamil Nadu’s existing political tradition.
Haasan said, “I was not impressed simply because Sasikala has superior numbers. If they don’t know the business of running the nation, they have no right to be there.
