Comedians are usually the perfect foil to the action star’s brusque, macho act — either as sidekick or fallguy. But the ace comedian Vadivelu blasted the actor-turned-politician Vijayakanth in the public DMK compaign meeting held at Thiruvarur. He criticized Vijayakanth as drunkard, mentally disabled and was in full swing to slam Vijayakanth by uttering harsh comments on him.
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi on Wednesday launched the first election campaign at his birth place Thiruvarur in Tamil Nadu. As it was announced that Vadivelu will speak at the Thirivarur meeting, it was anticipated that Vadivelu would target Vijayakanth this time more so because of his tiff with the DMDK’s founder Vijayakanth since 2009.
When Vadivelu was called to address the public meeting, the entire audience burst into applause. However, the same applause was missing, when Karunanidhi delivered his speech.
As expected, Vadivelu wasted no time in attacking Vijayakanth’s attitude of becoming Tamil Nadu CM. During the entire speech he used abusive words against Vijayakanth, but he never uttered any single word against Jayalalitha.

Though PMK leader Ramadoss was not encouraging Vadivelu’s speech, the rest of the DMK Cadres, especially MK Azhagiri and Dhayanidhi Maran were enjoying Vadivelu’s blast against Vijayakanth.
A brief summary of Vadivelu’s speech, “CM Karunanidhi has announced many freebies like free laptops for students and free bus ride in government as well as private bus routes. He has announced the help of Rs. 10, 000 for pregnant women. I could earn only after my 25 years, but now the fetal itself can earn 1000 per month.
CM post is not a musical chair. You (Vijayakanth) launched your party just because a small portion of your marriage hall was demolished. I am challenging you !!!! if you are the CM, I will be the PM…. If you are the PM, I will be the President… If you are the president, I am OBAMA. Many asked me, would you contest against Vijayakanth. If I contest against Vijayakanth it’s a great shame for me only. My only aim is to sweep out Vijayakanth’s whole team and to campaign vigorously for DMK’s victory.
Don’t you feel shame to claim yourself as ‘Black MGR’? If you are the Black MGR, then I will have to claim myself as Black Nehru. Would Sonia Gandhi agree if I claim myself as Black Nehru? The same applies for you too.
Annan Azhagiri and Stalin are like Lion cubs of Ayya. If the CM wins again, he will keep up his promise and will do more than promised.”
It may be worth mentioning here that Vadivelu didn’t utter any word against other ADMK led alliance parties and ADMK Supremo Jayalalitha.
The DMK chief Karunanidhi’s speech was not impressive and various mediapersons, especially from north India, who were there to cover the campaign rally, were left wondering ‘why Karunanidhi couldn’t get applauded for his freebies when a comedian got it so easily.’
