Veteran film star Kamal Haasan,who is expected to soon take the political plunge, on Saturday lauded the police department for relief work in areas inundated due to heavy rains, saying “good citizens shine with or without uniform”.

“Thanks for going beyond the call of your duty. Good citizens shine with or without uniform. More similar Thamizhan’s (Tamils) should report to duty”, he tweeted on Saturday. The actor also shared a picture of policemen taking part in relief work in a waterlogged street in Chennai following heavy rainfall seen in the last week.

In another tweet, Haasan urged his supporters to take part in relief work without disturbing workers of government agencies. “I appeal to my fans and supporters to participate in flood relief and rehabilitation works, without disturbing the government workers,” he said.

With the onset of the northeast monsoon on October 27, government employees have been involved in relief work in low-lying areas in Chennai and neighbourhood districts.

Kamal Haasan has recently been active politically, levelling corruption charges against the K Palaniswami-led AIADMK government in Tamil Nadu and taking it on over the spread of dengue in the state. His outburst against the government had prompted strong responses from ministers, including Palaniswami himself.

    Did Mr. Kamal solve the problem of flood in Chennai? Mr.Kamal visited Ennore. What happened? Did he solve the problem?People expect Kamal Hassan to solve all problems much faster than Modi or government in power? First Kamal Hassan may please ensure all film directors and artists/actors like him get only cheque payment and pay TDS all other taxes in Kollywood industry. That is the first step Kama lcan help India to eradicate corruption.People expect result the very day after Kamal speaks on any subject if he wants to compare with any political party or personality especially like Modi. Otherwise do not talk on issues.That is the great service people like Kamal do the nation and Tamil people.
