Tamil actor Vijay lends support to Anna

New Delhi: Popular Tamil actor Vijay on Thursday
joined a number of celebrities in expressing support to Anna
Hazare`s fast for a strong Lokpal, saying the Gandhian`s stir
has triggered a nation-wide debate on uprooting corruption.

Vijay, who has acted in over 60 films in Tamil language
and has a huge fan following, flew in from Chennai this
morning and met Hazare at the Ramlila Maidan, the venue of his
fast.

Saluting Anna`s "will power", Vijay said the way the
movement is getting public support that too without any
political background is praiseworthy.

"The movement has triggered a nation-wide debate on
uprooting corruption. I am very proud to be here as a Tamilian
from Tamil Nadu. I pray for his good health," he told Hazare`s
supporters.

Vijay is the second celebrity from the south to express
his support to Anna Hazare after Super Star Rajinikanth, who
lent his support to the campaign on Tuesday.
