Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (MDMK) chief, V. Gopalsamy, popularly known as 'Vaiko', has argued before the tribunal court in Chennai that the ban imposed by the Central Government on Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) should be lifted.
Vaiko informed media today that he has put forth documents to support his claim.
"I placed the clarification through his lordship for which the director had no direct answer. I wanted to know how many cases have been framed against the supporters of LTTE in these 24 months. He simply said many cases; he could not give the number. Then I asked how many organisations have been branded as pro-LTTE organisations in Tamil Nadu," he said.
"For that simple question also he said many organisations, I can't give the number. Then I told the judge he has not read out contents of the affidavit. I asked him about any cases registered against the supporters or any agents of LTTE for an attempt to forge understanding with the Maoists and other organisations because it was mentioned here. For that also he could not give any answer," he added.
Vaiko said he would again place his arguments in the court on Saturday for seeking revocation of ban on LTTE.
Vaiko is known for his support to LTTE and other organisations, which have been protesting for a separate state of Tamils in Sri Lanka. (ANI)

Tamil Nadu has 75 ml people but their literacy is below Sri Lanka's. Their per capita income is lower than Sri Lanka's. Sri Lanka has higher human development index (HDI). Tamil Nadu is a grubby, squalid state where treat low castes like animals, they do not have enough toilets and excrete in the open.

DMK is a violent, anti Indian, anti non tamil organization from its inception. they foster violence, and the aims are ,with 50-60 million Tamils, try to control India, by violent means, the danger is for India and rest of the world, if DMK and the tmil movement, is not contained, the majority of the educated tamils, oppose this, but are threatened into silence.

Not only sinhalese even All tamils also suffered because of LTTE. So many thousands innocent people were killed by them including Rajive Gandhi. So Vaiko WHY ? ban should be lifted. We Sri Lankan sinhalese and tamils are living very peacefully just like brothers and sisters all over Sri Lanka now. Please don't disturb them now. Dirty politicians in both countries ruined us and even now they are now trying to take the maximum advantage out of this situation for their benefit.

Why should we bother about someone using his democratic rights to establish something he thinks right. The law will take its own course to resolve the issue.

do not under estimate tamil nadu. thr population of tamils is 75 million ,4times of sl. they are developed and high literacy rate in south asia. they are first in IT in india. they are part of india that is why they could not notdo any thing for the tamils problem in lanka. most of the singalese kings from tamil nadu.

Vaikoo is a talented man but he should speak for the Tamils, not for the Loony Tigers of Tamil Eelam.

tilak Saturday, 29 September 2012 10:08 AM
Just as the murderous Hitler, Stalin, Sadam Hussein etc still has lunatic supporters, so has the killer Prabhakaran. I am sure Vaiko's antics are well funded by the LTTE rump. He is wasting his and everyone's time only.

Enter da Wimal of T-Nadu!!!!!!
conty Friday, 28 September 2012 11:02 PM
Vaiko, or wanker!!!!!! If you so love the Tamils so much, why don't you try to create your own nation of Tamil Eelam and see how the Indian Central Govt handles it? You are trying to get the peaceful Sri Lankan Tamil do the dirty work for you. If you were on fire I would not waste my Piss on you to save you, I will let you burn to death.
Sudu Akka Friday, 28 September 2012 11:08 PM
When is this lunatic Vaiko be taught a lesson? This lunatic is interfering on our country's affairs for his own political gain while his followers in Tamil Nadu are defecating in the streets for lack of lavatories. Vaiko is said to have defecated in the streets of Europe when he went to address the European Union some time ago. Habits die hard for this clown.
lal Friday, 28 September 2012 11:43 PM
This joker has supported the racist, genocidal LTTE for a long time. Sri Lanka must take him in like they did with KP and put him on trial.

V.Gopalasamy has changed his name to Vaiko. Many still refer him by his original name.
Potta Sunil Saturday, 29 September 2012 12:44 AM
Three decades of bloodshed, countless loss of life and hopelessness amoung all Sri Lankan communities caused by LTTTE should not be allowed to raise its ugly head again. Hope India as a whole will never allow LTTE to make a come back in Sri Lanka through Tamil Nadu.
