Superstar Rajinikanth’s reported visit to Sri Lanka to launch a housing scheme is facing opposition from Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi president Thol Thirumavalavan.
In a statement, he expressed serious doubts and requested Rajinikanth not to attend the function in Sri Lanka to unveil a housing scheme for Tamils living there.
“Artists should only entertain people. We, on behalf of our party ‘Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi’ request Rajnikanth not to earn Tamil people’s hatred by participating in this event,” he said.
“I have sought an appointment to meet Rajinikanth in person… I will hand over a memorandum and request him to drop his visit,” he said.
Gnanam Foundation has constructed the homes for the relocation of displaced Sri Lankan Tamils affected by the civil war as part of the ‘Lyca Housing Scheme’ in Chinna Thampan and Puliyankulam regions in Vavuniya district in the Northern Province of Sri Lanka.
Lyca Groups is the producers of Rajini’s upcoming film 2.0. Meanwhile, Rajini fans have condemned Thirumavalavan and asked what was he doing when Tamils were killed in Lanka. “He was an MP in the Congress-DMK alliance at that time,” they said.
