A function was organized at the Nadar Sangam’s Thirumana Mandapam at Tatabad, Coimbatore in which director-producer S.A. Chandrasekaran took part and gave away identity cards to the members and volunteers of his son and actor Vijay’s ‘Makkal Iyakkam’.
Vijay, who didn’t campaign in the recent Assembly elections, was quick to credit the victory of Amma’s AIADMK and its allies to the ‘hardwork’ put in by his fans and members of his ‘Makkal Iyakkam’. SAC presided over the function which was also attended by Raviraja, Anand, Bhaskar and Kumar, functionaries of the ‘Makkal Iyakkam’.
After distributing I-Cards, SAC said “There have been 7.75 lakhs fans as members of the Makkal Iyakkam. Since the process of issuing I-Cards started, the Iyakkam has witnessed enrolment of an additional 1.12 lakhs members. The Iyakkam, as you are aware, has been indulging in providing all sorts of welfare schemes for the benefit of the people in almost all the Districts.
“Instead of directly entering politics, Vijay is doing everything possible to help you (fans). He would always lend his support to all the welfare schemes initiated and implemented by all of you. I shall also be there to render any required assistance,” said SAC.
