Vijay’s appeal elicits few responses

A fortnight back, actor Vijay staged a much-publicised and pre-hyped protest in the port city of Nagapattinam along with his fans and the public in an effort to urge the governments a the Centre and the State to take prompt steps to stop the atrocious and barbarian attacks by the personnel of the Sri Lankan Navy on the unsuspecting and hapless Tamil fishermen.

During his speech delivered on the day of the protest, Vijay had warned the Lankan government that if the attacks on the fishermen continued unabated, there won’t be a country called ‘Sri Lanka’ in the global map.

The actor also exhorted his fans to send telegrams in large number to the Central and State governments urging them to take proper action in ensuring that the attacks on the fishermen stopped at once. One is not sure in what sense did the star’s fans take the message from their ‘Thalaivar’ as only around 5,000 messages have so far reached telegraph offices addressed to the CM.

The responses were very little in Prime Minister’s office as well, with the telegraph count not crossing 1,000. Apparently not impressed with the response from his fans, Vijay has reportedly decided that he wouldn’t be speaking about telegram in any of his public outings from now on.
