Rajya Sabha MP Vaiko and his supporters were detained by the Delhi Police on Thursday for protesting against Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaksa's visit to India.

"Gun-toting soldiers are roaming in the streets inhabited by Tamil people. Tamil areas have become concentration camps controlled by the Sri Lankan army. What happened in Nazi Hitler's time in Germany and Poland, is happening today in Sri Lanka," Vaiko said while addressing a public meeting which had gathered in the protest.

"80 million Tamils are living in India. We have got an amicable relationship with Tamils in Sri Lanka. Why did Prime Minister Narendra Modi send his Foreign Minister Jaishankar to Sri Lanka? I suggest India should not get cheated by Sri Lanka. Gotabaya Rajapaksa will never establish a friendship with India as in geopolitical interests they will be supported by China and Pakistan," he added.

Vaiko went on to say that he condemns the invitation to Rajapaksa. "Gotabaya says that only with the vote of Sinhalese, he became the President of Sri Lanka. He would not have the welfare of Tamil people in his mind," he added.

Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaksa scheduled to arrive in New Delhi on Thursday evening.

He will be on a three-day visit to India from November 28-30.(ANI)

    This article giving publicity to Vaiko's claims about Sri Lanka, is derogatory to government of Sri Lanka, This is highly undue publicity to anti government protest by this man. Details of what his protest should not have published in your News paper.

    Vaiko should understand that majority Sinhalese voted for Hon. Gota. That is the reality. Why confusion??????????????

    Anpanman, study the recent history of Jaffna, when Indians raped and killed thousands of Tamils. Either you are a madman or an Indian spy.
