Vadivelu Campaigning for DMK

Peals of laughter resonated around many constituencies in Tamil Nadu  here as comedian Vadivelu campaigned in his indomitable humorous style in support of the DMK alliance candidates.

Turning the heat on film actor and DMDK leader Vijayakanth, Mr.Vadivelu appealed to people not to be carried away by his image as a good samaritan in films. “He is trying to hijack MGR’s image but he can never become MGR,” he pointed out.

He questioned the logic of AIADMK, founded by MGR, having an alliance with the DMDK, whose leader calls himself ‘Black MGR, he said belting out some of the popular MGR film songs to drive home his point.

The actor has been scripting his own dialogues for the campaign. The punchlines — funny or offensive depending upon which side of the political fence you’re sitting on — have become a campaign talking point. Neeya Captain? Dhonithan Captain. Captain Dhoni. Nee Chani. — (You the captain? Dhoni’s the captain, you’re just dung) — Mr. Vadivelu was seen ridiculing Vijayakanth after India won the cricket World Cup. (Vijayakanth was the hero of the film Captain Prabhakaran, and the word Captain became an honorific like Puratchi Thalivar for MGR and Kalaignar for Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi).

Vadivelu also took potshots at Vijayakanth saying: Thanniyil Pora kappalukku captain. Thanni Adikiravan Captaina. (A ship can have a captain, but the man who drinks?, a play on the Tamil word thanni, which stands for both water and liquor).

The ace comedian has been campaigning for the ruling DMK front and has been launching a scathing attack on Vijaykanth, not bothering to mince words at his will. During his campaign at Mudhukulathur, stones were thrown at his van by a few miscreants. The same thing happened in Sivaganga too.

In the backdrop of the stone-throwing incident, Vadivelu has said that the Election Commission is ‘wholly responsible’ in saving his life and protecting him from the attack which he alleged was being launched by Vijayakanth’s supporters.

“Security hasn’t been enough at the places where I have been campaigning. I’m sure the people are aware as to ‘who’ is behind the attack,” said Vadivelu.

Moreover the speech was telecast by a couple of TV channels(Needless to say, it’s SUN TV and Kalaignar TV) repeatedly.

In response to this, Dileep Kumar, High power committee member of DMDK, Chennai has filed a complaint with the Chief Electoral Officer of Tamil Nadu alleging that Vadivelu had made a denigrating speech against Vijayakanth which is not permitted under law at the public meeting held at Tiruvarur on March 23 for launching the campaign for the Democratic Progressive Alliance led by DMK.

Dileep appealed to the Chief Electoral Officer to issue orders to stop the telecast and take action against Vadivelu by registering cases. Vadivelu should be barred from making such derogatory and distasteful speeches against Vijayakanth in future, he said in the complaint.

The Chief Electoral Officer forwarded the complaint to Tiruvarur Collector K. Baskaran who in turn asked the Superintendent of police to take action.

P. Moorthy, Superintendent of Police, said that, the Police have registered two cases against Vadivelu based on the complaint lodged by Dileep Kumar on Saturday night.

vadivelu thiruvarur speech

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.’
