Chennai: The Liberation Panther Party aka Vidhuthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) has advised superstar Rajinikanth to re-consider his decision to visit Sri Lanka to inaugurate a housing scheme. They said it might earn him the wrath of the Tamil community.
As part of his visit, being organised by Lyca Productions, Rajinikanth is expected to speak at a public meeting and plant tree saplings.
According to a source in VCK, Rajinikanth’s visit might prove to the world that things are back to normal in Sri Lanka.
“Nothing has changed in Sri Lanka, especially the lives of displaced Sri Lankan Tamils following the civil war in 2009. They’re using Rajinikanth’s visit to fool the world that life has returned to normal but it hasn’t. We want Rajinikanth to reconsider his decision. If not, he will face the wrath of Tamil community,” the source told IANS.
VCK – a political party that supports the cause of Dalits in Tamil Nadu – is led by T. Thirumavalavan, who is spearheading the protest against Rajinikanth’s visit.
Earlier this week, it was announced that the “Enthirana actor will hand over the keys to 150 homes built for Tamils by Gnanam Foundation on April 9 in Jaffna, Sri Lanka, according to a statement released by Lyca Productions.
Lyca Productions is also bankrolling Rajinikanth’s upcoming release “2.o”, a sequel to his 2010 Tamil blockbuster “Enthiran”.
