Actor Kamal Haasan had posted a controversial tweet against the Government yesterday (Nov 19) evening. He tweeted, "Theft by the Government is an offence and a crime. Guilty people shouldn't rule. The public should become the judge. Let us all rise."

Kamal's statement has irked D Jayakumar of Aiadmk. The Fisheries Minister of the state during a recent press event condemned Kamal, "Aiadmk government will take action against Kamal Haasan if he continues to make baseless allegations against the state on Twitter."
