Kamal Haasan suggests ‘no work, no pay’ for legislators staying in resorts

CHENNAI: Veteran actor Kamal Haasan on Friday took potshots at elected representatives, saying that they should also be covered under the “no work no pay” formula. The actor’s comments came in the wake of a section of government employees and teachers striking work, with the Madras High Court pulling up the teachers for doing so.

“No work no pay only for Govt. Employees?. How about horse trading politicians languishing in resorts?,” the actor said in a tweet without naming anyone, reports IANS. The ‘resort’ remark was apparently a reference to a section of the ruling AIADMK MLAs owing allegiance to ‘sacked’ leader T T V Dhinakran shifting resorts. Following the revolt of 19 party MLAs against Chief Minister K Palaniswami, they were all initially accommodated at a resort in Puducherry. They later shifted to a resort in Coorg in Karnataka and are since staying there.
