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.
