On Sunday, Vinayaga Chathurthi day (August 23), Vijay and his VMI with the tacit support of ruling Congress party in Puducherry (Pondycherry), held a huge public meeting, which was attended by Puducherry Chief Minister V Vaidyalingam. Sify.com team has an exclusive peak of the event.
The meeting was organised by Vijay's Pudhucherry fan club president and Puducherry Munetra Congress MLA, N Anand. Nearly 50,000 people crowded the Anna Thidal (stadium) in the heart of the city. For poor and needy students, he started computer training centers and distributed cycles.
Vijay made a short speech in which he urged the youth to take up social work and help the poor and needy. N.Anand, local MLA urged the crowd to ask- "Why can't Vijay enter politics?"
Vijay's carefully worded reply was, "I will never say that I have no desire for politics, but it is like a big ocean. I feel that one has to go step by step and study the issue before plunging into it."
Vijays's fans went delirious when he said a typical punchline, when a student asked him whether he will enter politics : "Ithu Vere Vazhi, Varuvendi Nerathu Varum! (It's a different route, I will come at the right time).
He then looks up at the huge crowd and in filmi style nods his head and asks- "OK?", which resulted in thunderous ovation.
