Kamal Writes An Open Letter To PM Modi
Kamal Haasan, President of Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) has penned an open letter to PM Narendra Modi.
In the letter, he is urging PM to focus on all sections of the society while combating the COVID-19. Kamal said PM's vision failed this time and the same mistake of demonetization is being repeated.
In his long letter, Haasan questioned the government and also criticized the manner of the 21-day lockdown as 'ill-planned' to fight the battle against the COVID-19 outbreak.
He wrote, "My biggest fear is that the same mistake of demonetization is being repeated albeit at a much bigger scale. While demonetization led to the loss of savings and livelihood of the poorest, this ill-planned lockdown is leading us to a fatal combination of loss of both life and livelihood."
Speaking about the yesterday's initiative by PM Modi, Kamal Haasan wrote, "While your world lit up oil diyas in their balconies, the poor are struggling to gather enough oil to bake their next roti."
Kamal Haasan accused the PM saying that the government seems to be securing only an already well-built middle-class fortress.
At the end of the letter he wrote, "We are angry but we are still on your side.”
