COIMBATORE:  Actor Vishal laid to rest all rumours about himself taking to politics, stating that he has no intention to join or float a political party. The actor disclosed this at a function organised in the city on Sunday by the Coimbatore Cattle Care Welfare Trust, to protect cattle against cruelty.

“Traders should follow existing laws while transporting cattle, and should not treat them cruelly. By saying this, I am not against red meat consumers or a particular community or religion,” added Vishal.

Urging the student community who gathered from neighbouring districts at the venue, to protect the animals, Vishal said, “Everyone has a responsibility to protect animals. Even though there are restrictions, I will continue to fight for the welfare of animals.”

Siva Ganesh, Coordinator, Coimbatore Cattle Care Welfare Trust, said that they are planning to organise an awareness campaign among college and school students and conduct sports events, in a bid to sensitise them about cruelty to animals.

Later, at a press meet, Vishal said he would welcome actors Dhanush and Simbu to contest in the Nadigar Sangam (South Indian Artistes Association) election, which was put on hold due to an interim stay from the Madras High Court.

Vishal also met drama artists for the first time in the city to gather support for the Nadigar Sangam election.
