Rajinikanth cancels Sri Lanka visit

Actor Rajinikanth has announced today that he has called off his trip to Jaffna in sri Lanka next month. He was supposed to take part in a series of events that including handing over of keys of houses constructed for displaced Tamils.

Remember the likes of MDMK general secretary Vaiko, DPI chief Thol Thirumavalavan and TVK leader Velmurugan had said that Rajinikanth should not be visiting the island nation condemning the atrocities committed against Tamils.

Ina  three-page statement issued by Rajinikanth today, he listed the various event that he was supposed to attend in Jaffna. He said he wanted to visit because of two main reasons.

I wanted to visit the soil where people for their self-respect and self-esteem waged a brave bottle and many gave their lives in the struggle. And I also wanted to meet President Sirisena and urge him to come up with an amicable solution on the endless the attacks on Tamil fishermen who for their survival risk all their lives and go deep inside sea.

'I was urged by Thirumavalavan through media, Vaiko through phone and Velmurugan through his friend urging me not to visit Lanka, Following their request I have decided not to visit this time'.

Rajinikanth however said, 'As Thirumavalavan said I am an artiste and my duty is to entertain people.I wish to state that if ever I get an opportunity again, I would visit the place and entertain people for I am an artiste. I urge everyone not to politicize the issue'.
