Taking questions about the upcoming state elections, Vijayakanth dares the journalists to ask Jayalalithaa the same questions or any question at all. “I’m standing here chatting you all up and I’m being nice but how about trying to approach her? You’re all scared,” he spits.
“All I have to say about the AIADMK is that I don’t like them one bit,” Vijayakanth says.
“Does anyone of you dare ask her to organize a press meet? If your owner asks you to do it, you may, otherwise, you won’t even go miles near her.”
The DMDK chief is playing his cards carefully before BJP president Amit Shah’s visit to Tamil Nadu scheduled for January. Vijayakanth is not committing himself to any tie-up with the BJP just yet.
Chennai Press Club has condemned Vijayakanth for this alleged misbehaviour with journalists and has asked him to openly apologise for “continuously” behaving in an “uncivilised” manner with them.
