Speak to HDK on Tamil film release: Pon Radhakrishnan to M K Stalin

He claimed that there was no justification for banning Tamil films.

COIMBATORE: Union minister of state for finance and shipping Pon Radhakrishnan has asked DMK working president M.K. Stalin not to remain a "mute spectator" to Karnataka government's politics shadowing the screening of Tamil films and said his DMK, which claims to strive for the cause of Tamils should advise its ally Congress in Karnataka to pave way for the release of Tamil films.

“I am not speaking in support of Rajinikanth (whose new film Kaala is slated for release on June 7) but my point is, will the DMK and Congress which have deceived the Tamils here, allow the Congress in Karnataka to betray Tamils in that state? Stalin should ensure Tamil films are screened there,” Radhakrishnan said here on Saturday.

Kaala’s release is in jeopardy as the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce claimed that distributors have backtracked over Rajini’s anti-Karnataka stand on the Cauvery issue.

“Your alliance government is ruling there. So, Stalin should get in touch with the Congress-JD(S) government to facilitate the release of Tamil films,” Mr Radhakrishnan told reporters. He claimed that there was no justification for banning Tamil films.

“Those who had come to power in the name of Tamil language, should at least take efforts to get a Tamil film released... its an appeal by me as a Tamil,” he said adding DMK cannot wash off its hands saying it was not in power.
