Ayyakannu, president of farmers' association talks about Vijay

Actor Vijay had emphasized the importance of farmers in his acceptance speech at Behindwoods Gold Medals 2017. Vijay had said that the government of India must address the issues of our farmers first before working on other developments. Has Vijay's speech made any difference to the farmers? We inquired about this to Ayyakannu, President, National, South Indian Rivers Linking Farmers' Association, and this is what he had to say, "We felt pleased to see someone like Vijay supporting us. Even we thought of meeting Vijay and honour him with a shawl because no other celebrities care about us. So we were elated when Vijay said something like that about us. So when our protest comes to an end, we will meet Vijay and honour him."
