  • Haasan joins anti-Sterlite stir

"More than an actor, I am a human being, a Tamilian, " he said.

Makkal Neethi Maiyam chief Kamal Haasan asked "What is the necessity to put up the plant near residential and agricultural zone?.to say that the location is close to the port is not acceptable".

Earlier Kamal Haasan, who launched his political party Makkal Needhi Maiam in February in a press conference had said that he won't let the Sterlite copper plant turn into another Bhopal and will join the public in the protest for its closure.

The company had thrown open the plant premises to Kamal to "visit and see for himself, learn the true situation about the environment and health concerns, and to gather facts about the official clearances for the expansion project", said Esakkiappan, head of public relations at the plant, adding, "He did not come, but has chosen to deliver the script written by the vested interests". "The injustice meted out to you is the cruel face of greediness, " he said hitting out at Sterlite.

If the government failed to do that, people would do that, " he said.

Sterlite Copper's unit was shutdown on 29 March for 15 days for "maintenance work". "Why are they not giving this money to the poor affected people instead?"

Meanwhile, the anti-Sterlite campaigners have succeeded in taking the stir to the neighbouring Pandarampatti village and also got the supporters to hold a rally in Chennai demanding the closure of the copper smelting plant. With two of Tamil Nadu's biggest stars coming together for the cause of the protestors, the administration is likely to respond. But the company went to the NGT which gave conditional clearance.

A leading copper producer, Sterlite Copper represents the copper unit of Vedanta Limited which operates a 400,000 tonnes per annum plant in Tuticorin.

Superstar Rajinikanth has wondered why the AIADMK-led State Govt. hasn't been taking appropriate action for so long with respect to the protest against Sterlite Industries in Tuticorin District.
