Have some respect and be responsible. This is not the time to play petty politics. #TamilNadu.Whether denial of a #Marina memorial for #Kamaraj ayya is brought up or not, it is irrelevant! #AIADMK should look forward and not back to make an example. Don't cite a past mistake to justify a monumental new one. The best time for a good step is the present. #Kalaignar #Respect”, tweeted actor Siddharth.
