Popular comedian Vivek has been entertaining fans for over 3 decades with his smart wit which includes comedy interlaced with subtle social messages.
Apart from his notable performances in various films over the years, Vivek has also been an outspoken person on various social issues and a staunch admirer of late President A. P. J. Abdul Kalam and his principles.
Vivek, who has often urged people to plant more saplings so the environment and our livelihood can be benefited with more trees, has now spoken about why it is important for everybody to cast their votes in the upcoming elections.
In the video, Vivek goes on to state, “It is a crucial time for you and your country as the elections are coming up ahead. The special aspect about India is her democracy. Among the many big democracies in the world, India too is one. The choice to choose a government bestowed upon the people with a voting process is the an exceptional attribute. People here are the true kingmakers. The ones who make kings; the people are the true kings. In such a scenario, is it fair that the kings resort to begging? I mean, is it fair to get money for votes? Just think about it.”
He concluded saying, “Our Tamil Nadu has her own heritage and culture. We have the Brihadeeswara Temple in Thanjavur that was built over a 1000 years back, the Kallanai Dam built over 2000 years by Karikalan, the Thirukkural written over 2500 years back - our heritage only continues to grow. The next question that now arises is what are WE doing? We can make this country into a mighty developed nation by handing her over to good people, can’t we? That is our voting right. Our future generations will leave praises for us and we should do only this noble deed.” Check out his statement in the video below:
