Chennai, March 19 IANS | 5 months ago

The Tamil Nadu state election commission has roped in actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan to campaign against cash for votes. In a video released by the election commission, Kamal has urged people to not sell their future and self-respect for a pittance.


"Don't vote by comparing which leader is paying more for voting. Think about in whose hands you are resting your future and then vote for the deserving leader. Don't sell your future and self-respect for a pittance," Haasan said in the video.

"Let's vote with conscience and promise that under any circumstance we wouldn't sell our votes," he added.

Kamal says voting is one of the important duties of every citizen.

"Out of the different duties we are obliged to do for our country, voting is very important. Let's vote by understanding and realizing the capabilities of the leader contesting in the elections," Haasan said.

Kamal is currently busy shooting for upcoming Tamil comedy "Uttama Villain".
