Actor and leader of the political party Makkal Needhi Maiam Kamal Haasan’s press meet goes viral. Kamal Haasan urges the Tamil Nadu government to take necessary actions against the PSBB School issue. He says that the educational system’s carelessness is upsetting as the institution failed to look into the matter when the issue arose.
He said on the press meet, “ Allegations in a few other schools have also come to light. The State government must form an investigation team and investigate these allegations on a war footing.” “As a father of two daughters, my anxiety over their well-being took the shape of Mahanadi (film) and that anxiety hasn’t come down,” he said and added that parents should supervise children when the latter are on their online classes and should take their issues seriously, if brought to them.
He also said that there is an attempt to turn this into a ‘caste issue’ for short-term political gains. “If we don’t focus on the crime and the perpetrator of the crime, there is a chance that it would become advantageous to those who committed the crime. No matter which caste the perpetrator belongs to, they must be punished. As an informed society, we must ensure that justice is done,” his statement concluded.
