We are planning to provide more in future by discovering the need of the people” Vijay said in his tweet by writing “நாகர்கோவில் ஆசாரிப்பள்ளம் அரசு மருத்துவமனைக்கு கொரோனா நோயாளிகளின் வசதிக்காக ஆம்புலன்ஸ் ஒன்று வழங்கப்பட்டது. வரும் நாட்களில் மக்களின் தேவைகளை ஆராய்ந்து இன்னும் ஏராளமான சேவைகள் செய்ய திட்டமிட்டுள்ளோம்.”

Replying to this post, a follower asked how Vijay is managing to do these services when the central government stopped the funds for Members of Parliament Local Area Development. “MPLAD fund எல்லாம் மத்திய அரசு நிப்பாட்டி வச்சிருக்காங்க. நீங்க மட்டும் எப்படி manage பண்ணுறீங்க?” he asked.

“Being a member of parliament, I realized that the process of receiving funds will get delayed and did this facility with my own expense. Let’s do for people to the fullest of our capacity” Vijay said in his tweet by writing “நாடாளுமன்ற உறுப்பினர் என்ற நிலையில் நிதி வசதிகள் பெற தாமதம் ஏற்படும் என்பதை கருத்தில் கொண்டு இந்த வசதியை எனது சொந்த செலவில் செய்துள்ளேன். நம்மால் முடிந்தவரை மக்களுக்காக செய்வோம்.”
