Popular Tamil television channel Vijay TV has denied its association with Super Singer event to be held in Sri Lanka. Reacting to the reports related to its connection, the channel has given an official confirmation through a press release.
The channel has said that Vijay TV has always stood by the dignity of Tamils and it knows its responsibility. "Vijay TV has always upheld the interest of Tamils and their dignity and has always acted as a responsible television channel Vijay TV has always functioned in a manner in which it understands and respects Tamils and their sentiments."
There were reports that Vijay TV in association with Coral Property development and Ceylon Arts Creations have decided to arrange Super Singer program at the Maruthane St Josesh College, Sri Lanka.
As there is a tension between Tamil Nadu and the neighbour country over the massacre of Tamils in the country, people expressed their displeasure over the channel's plan to have a program in Sri Lanka.
The channel claimed, "Its for this sheer reason the Tamil diaspora spread over the world has always loved and supported Vijay Television. In this context we would like to clarify on a few false reports which have appeared in the press recently."
"On March 1, 2 a cultural program was scheduled in Sri Lanka with which Vijay TV has no connection or association. It has never been associated with any events in Sri Lanka in the past as well," Vijay TV statement concluded.
