Kamal Haasan Hits Out At Tamil Nadu Government On Expressway Arrests

Kamal Haasan slammed the Tamil Nadu government for arresting people protesting the Chennai-Salem corridor


New Delhi:  Actor Kamal Haasan on Wednesday slammed the Tamil Nadu government for arresting people protesting against the eight-lane green corridor between Chennai and Salem.

"To treat anyone talking about environment as a crime is not acceptable. This concern should be there among all," he told reporters when asked about his views on the raging controversy over the proposed expressway connecting the two cities.

The Tamil Nadu police has been accused of indiscriminate and arbitrary arrests of people and activists protesting against the project on the ground that thousands of hectares of land of agriculturists and others would be acquired, leaving them in the lurch.
