Veteran film star Kamal Haasan, who is expected to soon take the political plunge, on Saturday lauded the police Department for relief work in areas inundated in heavy rains, saying 'good citizens shine with or without uniform'.
"Thanks for going beyond the call of your duty. Good citizens shine with or without uniform. More similar Thamizhan's (Tamils) should report to duty", the actor tweeted on Saturday.
The actor also shared a picture of senior police officials taking part in relief work in a water-logged street in Chennai following the heavy rainfall seen in the last week.
In another tweet, Haasan urged his supporters to take part in relief work without disturbing workers of Government agencies.
"I appeal to my fans and supporters to participate inflood relief and rehabilitation works, without disturbing thegovernment workers", Haasan tweeted further.
With the onset of the north east monsoon on October 27, employees of Government departments are involved in relief work in low lying areas in Chennai and neighbourhood districts.
His outburst against the government had prompted strong responses from ministers, including Palaniswami himself, who have hit out at the film star.
