Actor Vijay’s Makkal Iyakam will contest Tamil Nadu urban local body civic polls alone

Bangalore: In a statement authorized by actor Vijay, his fan club’s general secretary informed that Thalapathy Vijay Makkal Iyakkam would contest alone and field independent candidates in the urban local body elections.

The organisation did considerably well in the panchayat elections, by winning 129 ward member seats, which led to popular actor Vijay testing political waters. The Tamil Nadu urban local body polls are scheduled to be held on February 19.

Incidentally, Puducherry CM N Rangasamy met Vijay on February 6 and had a detailed discussion. Though it was stated to be a courtesy meeting, sources claim that Rangasamy had sought Vijay’s support in the future elections and to form an alliance in Puducherry. Sources also say that Vijay is still thinking about this offer.
