Ilayathalapathy Vijay’s fans are mighty excited at the rally cum protest planned by their ‘hero’ on 22nd (next Wednesday) of this month at Nagapattinam to protest against the State and Union Governments’ continuing ‘lack of interest’ in stalling the on-going attacks on hapless Tamil fishermen by the Sri Lankan navy.
The preparation for the protest has begun with great enthusiasm among the star’s fans in Naagai, reports say. Vijay would be meeting and consoling the family members of the fishermen who lost their lives or were left grievously injured besides providing them with monetary benefits and other help.
This would be the first time Vijay, who has been saying that he would ‘indulge in politics’ in a few years’ time, has taken up a public cause and decided to go on protest. The star’s fans from many other Districts are also expected to take part in the protest to add to the numbers and to show to the other political parties in the State about the star’s ‘strength’.
Office-bearers of Vijay’s fan clubs say (on condition of anonymity) that they have reason to believe that the local police have been ‘specifically instructed’ to ensure that not a ‘huge crowd’ collects on the said day. They have been asked to restrict the entry of lorries, trucks and vans into Naagai from the previous day itself, they say.
Observers say this could be true but aren’t sure about the actual position. On that day, it is said that Vijay might openly declare his support to the AIADMK in the ensuing elections!
Let’s wait for a week to find it out!
