Criticising the central government for not constituting a Cauvery management board (CMB), actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan on Wednesday said the Tamil Nadu government is functioning like a subservient government to the Centre rather than upholding the state’s rights, which is the essence of India’s federalism.

“While the responsibility of constituting the water management board is with the Centre, the Tamil Nadu government cannot imagine that it has fulfilled its duty towards the people, who elected them, by just filing a contempt petition in the Supreme Court or by holding a farcical one day

hunger strike,” Kamal told the reporters in Trichy

The Makkal Needhi Maiam president will address a public meeting on the G-corner Ground here in the evening.

Stating that the primary focus of the public meeting would be the Cauvery issue, Kamal said, “We would bring to the notice of the public the key issues surrounding this Cauvery water dispute as also the possible solutions that we all need to work on. We will also be stating some of the key policy guidelines of our party. This would be a precursor to the overall policy document that we would publish in the next five months.”
