Actor Vijay to visit Kallakurichi following hooch tragedy!

The death toll in the Kallakurichi liquor case, which has all the attention in Tamil Nadu right now, has increased to 38 on Thursday, and at this time, buzz has it that actor turned politician Vijay will be visiting the Kallakurichi district, where 82 others are being treated as well. 


The death toll in the Kallakurichi hooch tragedy went from 9 to 38 in a span of two days (June 19, June 20), and the victims who succumbed to death after consuming the spurious liquor, include 2 women and 1 transperson. Hooch tragedies are not new in Tamil Nadu (TN). In 2023, the TN state witnessed a twin-incident where at least 22 people died after consuming the illicit hooch in Villupuram, and Chengalpattu districts.


Following the recent incidents in Karunapuram in Kallakurichi district, and the neighbouring Salem district, Tamilaga Vetri Kazhagam (TVK) founder Vijay who plans on contesting in the 2026 Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly Elections, posted on X,


The news of the death of more than 25 people after consuming fake liquor in Karunapuram area of ​​Kallakurichi district is shocking and heartbreaking. I offer my deepest condolences to the families of the deceased and pray to God for the speedy recovery of those undergoing treatment.



The fact that such an incident has occurred again shows the indifference of the government administration when it has not yet fully recovered from the tragedy of losing many lives due to the same incident last year.


I strongly request that the Tamil Nadu government should take strict precautionary measures to prevent such incidents from happening in the future."
