In his letter to Jayalalithaa, the actor said it was fantastic to sit down with her and discuss the success she was having in Tamil Nadu and the challenges she faced.
“The work you do for women and children really touched me. I am not surprised at all that the people of Tamil Nadu call you Amma,” he said.
The actor said the all-women police stations, an initiative of the previous AIADMK government, was a brilliant idea. “I am surprised I have not heard it before.” Schwarzenegger said he was loved to hear that the Jayalalithaa embraced clean and renewable energy in the state.
The actor, who runs an organization, R20: Regions of Climate Action, which works with subnational governments around the world to move toward a clean energy future, expressed his interest to work with the Tamil Nadu government.
Over 560 cities and states have joined us, and I think that Tamil Nadu is a perfect partner. I would love to invite you to join, and I will have my staff follow up with your environmental minister because let us not forget, our responsibility is not just to clean up the air in our own states, but to inspire others to do what you have done in Tamil Nadu and we have done in California,” the actor said.
