The Housing scheme was which includes 150 houses were built by Gnanam Foundation and has been named after Lyca Group chairman Subaskaran Allirajah’s mother, at a cost of Rs. 22 crore Rajinikanth has stated that he agreed to visit the island nation since he wanted to see the places where Tamils lived and died for their cause. “Though I disagree with the reasons given by VCK chief Thirumavalavan and MDMK chief Vaiko, I will not participate in the event”, he said in a statement. The leaders of the pro-Tamil outfits had cautioned the actor from getting “involved” in the emotive ethnic issue. Rajinikanth said he planned to meet Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena and urge him to find a lasting solution to the fishermen issue. “I am not a politician, I am an artist. My job is to entertain people. In future, if I get a chance to visit Sri Lanka to witness the place of the ‘holy war’, don’t silence me”, he said. Earlier this week, Lyca Productions had announced that the “Enthiran” actor will hand over the keys to 150 homes built for Tamils by Gnanam Foundation on April 9 in Jaffna, Sri Lanka.
