Saturday, March 26, 2011 • Tamil Comments

The inevitable voice of Tamil Nadu political arena was heard on Friday, however much to the disappointment of lakhs of fans and supporters. With heavy heart, Vijaya T Rajendar announced his decision to boycott the Assembly elections.

Talking to journalists in Chennai, the founder of Latchiya Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam said, “Money is playing a crucial role in elections these days. Those without it have no other option than to stay away.”

“My party would not be taking part in the elections this time,” the actor-director said and added: “Polls here are along the lines of a cricket game. The entire process is commercialised a lot.”

“Rather than be a part of such a game, I shall be content to remain a spectator. I would like to make it clear that our party would not support anyone in the coming elections to the Tamil Nadu Assembly,” he said.
