Protesting against Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s proposed visit to India, MDMK founder Vaiko on Friday announced picketing of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s residence at Delhi besides a black flag protest at Tirupati.
Holding that the Lankan President had planned to visit Bodh Gaya and Tirupati, Vaiko said he would lead the protests in Delhi on February 8. A staunch critic of Rajapaksa in the light of the Sri Lankan Tamils issue, Vaiko also slammed the ruling UPA government over this matter. Vaiko had last year led a protest against the Sri Lankan President’s visit to Sanchi in Madhya Pradesh. PTI
