Ilayathapathy Vijay has been caught in a fresh controversy. The actor has been accused by Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) of being ‘pro-Lanka’ in his thoughts and refusing to sign a memorandum against the Lankan President Mahinda Rajapakse calling the nations in the world to announce him as a ‘war criminal’ for his purported genocide of Lankan Tamils a couple of years back.
It is said that the signature campaign, launched by VCK, was taken to Vijay who was shooting in Chennai’s Mylapore for his upcoming film ‘Nanban‘. The campaign was launched last week by VCK’s president Thol Thirumavalavan. Sathyaraj, Manivannan, R.K. Selvamani and actress Roja have reportedly inked their signature in favour of the campaign.
Vanniyarasu, spokesperson of VCK, went to meet Vijay along with his party volunteers and sought his signature on the memo. After asking many probing questions, Vijay refused to sign the memorandum, VCK alleges. “Vijay has betrayed the interest of the Tamils by not signing the memo against Rajapakse. When we got in touch with his father, he said he had his own organization and would organise a campaign if the need arose.
“It is apparent that Vijay and his father are merely doing lip-service for the welfare of the Tamils; it’s high time the Tamils recognized their actual intentions,” said Vanniyarasu.
Vijay, meanwhile, has refused the allegations and said he would come out with his side of the explanations soon.
