For lauding the newly elected Chief minister MK Stalin based on the reply he made to a request which was made on allowing trans genders to travel for free in government buses along with women, tamil actress Vijaya lakshmi was attacked by a troll in social media. He asked her whether she is a grand daughter of Periyar in a sarcastic manner and Viji replied to him in a similar manner.
On Friday, a journalist named Indhuja requested Chief minister to extend the “free bus ride” to trans-genders. “I request MK Stalin avargal to extend the free bus ride for women scheme to Trans-genders too as there are many who are finding it difficult to meet their ends and this would be a saviour. பெண்களுடன், திருநங்கைகளுக்கும் இலவச பஸ் பயண திட்டத்தை அறிவித்தால் நன்றாக இருக்கும்.”
I request @mkstalin avargal to extend the free bus ride for women scheme to Trans-genders too as there are many who are finding it difficult to meet their ends 🙏 and this would be a saviour. பெண்களுடன்,— Induja Ragunathan (@R_Induja) May 7, 2021
திருநங்கைகளுக்கும் இலவச பஸ் பயண திட்டத்தை அறிவித்தால் நன்றாக இருக்கும்.
As soon as the tweet blew up with thousands of reactions, the newly elected chief minister himself came up with a reply assuring that he will consider the request and make solution appropriately. “DMK has been considering the lives of trans genders along with the rights being provided to women since the period of our leader Kalaignar. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. Will consider trans genders travelling for free in government buses and will make appropriate solution” Stalin said in his tweet.
Check out his tweet below :
மகளிர் நலன் – உரிமை ஆகியவற்றுடன் திருநங்கையர் வாழ்வையும் இணைத்தே சிந்திப்பது தலைவர் கலைஞர் காலந்தொட்டே திமுக அரசின் வழக்கம்.— M.K.Stalin (@mkstalin) May 8, 2021
தாங்கள் அதனை கவனப்படுத்தியமைக்கு நன்றி.
பெண்களைப் போலவே திருநங்கையரும் கட்டணமின்றிப் பயணிப்பது குறித்து பரிசீலித்து, உரிய முடிவு விரைந்து எடுக்கப்படும். https://t.co/NSxVBP6nzJ
Along with thousands of people who lauded Stalin for his reply, actress Vijayalakshmi who is known for acting in films such as “Chennai 28”, “Anjathe” uploaded a tweet expressing her gratitude for the kind reply. “It’s our loss not to have you as our leader all these days. It’s a fantastiic leadership. Tamil nadu will march forward hereafter” Vijayalakshmi said in her tweet by writing “கடந்த காலங்களில் நீங்கள் முதல்வர் ஆகாதது தங்களின் இழப்பு இல்லை. எங்களின் இழப்பு. எத்தனை சீரான தலைமை. தமிழ் நாடு இனி தலை தூக்கும்”
Here’s her reply ;
கடந்த காலங்களில் நீங்கள் முதல்வர் ஆகாதது தங்களின் இழப்பு இல்லை. எங்களின் இழப்பு. எத்தனை சீரான தலைமை. தமிழ் நாடு இனி தலை தூக்கும் 🙏♥️ https://t.co/NTBFqQRNuw— Vijayalakshmi A (@vgyalakshmi) May 8, 2021

Replying to him, Vijayalakshmi questioned back “Kandupudichitiyaa?” which means “Oh, you have found it ?”

To another user who asked her to wait, Vijayalakshmi said that public is criticizing the leaders as soon as they fail to follow their word and asked why should one wait to appreciate when they do good. “Panala na odaney thaana thitrom.. panna wait panni pugalanum ma sago” her reply read.

It is the sixth time that the party DMK is forming a government in Tamil nadu. Along with Stalin, 33 other ministers from his party also took oath, the ceremony of which was carried out following all COVID 19 protocols.
