New Delhi : Actor Kamal Haasan on Wednesday slammed the Tamil Nadu government for arresting people protesting against the eight-lane green corridor between Chennai and Salem.

“To treat anyone talking about environment as a crime is not acceptable. This concern should be there among all,” he told reporters when asked about his views on the raging controversy over the proposed expressway connecting the two cities.
