It was Vadivelu’s maiden public meeting. And he used it as a platform to train his guns on Vijayakanth, whose supporters allegedly attacked the comedian’s house over a brawl a few years ago.
Speaking at the DMK-led alliance’s first election meeting at Tiruvarur Wednesday night, which was chaired by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi, Vadivelu came down heavily on the DMDK president for his ‘Karuppu MGR’ claim
“If he is Karuppu MGR, them I would like to refer me as Karuppu Nehru. He claims himself as the next Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. If it happens, I will become the Prime Minister of the country,” the comedian said in a lighter vein.
“During the last five years, the Chief Minister has implemented a host of welfare measures, which benefited the poor. The present manifesto has doubled the goodies and welfare measures. Karunanidhi has the record of keeping his promises. I will take this to the people,” he said.
