Following the decision of Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (MDMK) leader Vai Gopalsamy (Vaiko) to show black-flags to Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksha, Madhya Pradesh police have decided to provide the strongest-ever security cover to the guest during the foundation laying ceremony of Buddhist University at Sanchi on September 20.
A three-member team of MDMK is already camping in the State capital for the past three days and chalking out a strategy to stage protest demonstrations.
Meanwhile, the State police have decided to completely block the movement of villagers on routes on which the Sri Lankan President would pass. The residents of villages adjoining Sanchi have been asked to remain indoors from morning to afternoon on September 20, till Rajapaksha leaves for Bhopal airport.
Having rejected the appeal from Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister, Vaiko decided to go ahead with his planned black-flag demonstration against Sri Lankan President.
Sources stated that Vaiko had already left his home state by bus along with supporters in other vehicles on Monday night. As claimed by Vaiko, he would be accompanied by around 1000 supporters.
Meanwhile, BJP’s this activity creates major blow of its image in Tamil Nadu in future, an analyst told.
