TN govt not doing anything to solve crisis: Karuna on Vishwaroopam

Chennai: As the controversy over Kamal Haasan's Tamil movie Vishwaroopam continued, DMK chief M Karunanidhi today wondered why Tamil Nadu government had not taken any initiative to resolve the crisis.

"Though the Madras High Court judge has suggested an amicable solution, Tamil Nadu government has not taken any initiative," he said writing in the party organ 'Murasoli'.

Karunanidhi also cited reports suggesting that a TV channel close to AIADMK wanted to buy the film but that the producers had refused saying they had spent over Rs 100 crore.

He also referred to reports that at a function recently, Hassan wanted a 'dhoti clad' Tamilian to become the Prime Minister', apparently referring to P Chidambaram's potential to occupy the top job.

Various political leaders and film personalities, including superstar Rajinikant, have appealed to Muslims to cooperate in the release of the film and Hassan himself had said he was not against Muslims and the film was not against them, the DMK chief said.

"Why has Tamil Nadu government taken such a harsh decision and ordered a ban on the film"? Karunanidhi said.

Criticising the ban on the movie, DMDK leader Vijaykanth warned if Jayalalithaa government continued to take 'anti-people' stand, it would face the fury of the people.

He said imposition of Sec 144 of CrPc to tackle law and order problem would mean that it was not alright in the state. Vijaykant said Haasan should give up the idea of leaving the state.
