Kamal and Rajinikanth react to closure of Sterlite.

Actor-turned-politicians Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth were among the scores of people who reacted positively to the government's decision to close Sterlite Copper permanently in Tuticorin. 

Kamal Haasan took to Twitter and wrote, "The recent order of the Tamil Nadu Government for permanent closure of the Sterlite Copper unit in Thoothukudi is a victory for the might of the people. All political parties should humble themselves before this victory of the people; salute the martyrs and learn from them.

The future of TN politics has been changed by the people of Thoothukudi.  Now more of Tamil Nadu will help make the change. The purpose of a politician has been redefined by the people. Makkal Needhi Maiam will take the education forward. Honoured to be a Tamilian.

We are witness not just to handfed news anymore. We have started becoming the change. The Government should have been sensitive to the protests of local people for over 100 days and acted swiftly, which would have avoided the needless and unfortunate loss of lives last week.

Any legal challenge to this order by the Company should be defended appropriately by the State Government to ensure that the present order is permanently implemented."

Meanwhile, in an audio message, Rajinikanth opined that the victory is dedicated to the innocent who had lost their lives in the protests. He further added that protests of such nature that lead to civilians shedding their blood be a thing of the past.
