DMK leader MK Stalin on Sunday came to the support of actor Kamal Haasan, condemning Tamil Nadu ministers for their utterances against him. In a statement issued in Chennai, Stalin said that Kamal Haasan, like any other citizen, has only reflected what the people of Tamil Nadu feel about the AIADMK government in the state.

In a democracy, the rulers have to correct their mistakes and also explain their position when criticisms are levelled against them, he added.

The actor had earlier reportedly said there is corruption in Tamil Nadu government departments.

In response, Municipal Administration Minister SP Velumani challenged Kamal Haasan to prove existence of corruption in the government, and also asked the actor if he was ready to share the details of taxes paid by him for his films.
