Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (MDMK) chief Vaiko met Narendra Modi in New Delhi on Monday and said that the latter has promised attention to issues of minorities and Sri Lankan Tamil issue.
MDMK is an ally of NDA (National Democratic Alliance) in Tamil Nadu.
"He told me that the minorities within a short time will realize, I (Modi) am protecting everybody. In Kargil, where the minorities form the population, there BJP has won. And one more thing I said in this state five years back, hundreds and thousands of Tamils were allegedly killed by the Sri Lankan government with all the logistics, support and help of the UPA (United Progressive Alliance) government guided by Sonia Gandhi," said Vaiko.
India and Sri Lanka are often embroiled in situations where both parties claim to have arrested fishermen for wandering away and crossing international water boundaries.
Though fishermen in Tamil Nadu have been constantly fighting to demand safety from the government, Sri Lanka claims that poaching and illegal fishing by Indian fishermen depletes the catches of its own fishermen. (ANI)
53% of indians does not have toilets and these politicians should talk about these priorities of their own citizen first.

It was true that all Indians are good in drama acting! Waiko nicely did his part by shedding tears during his inaugural speech. Waiko receives 100% marks from the Public.

Why Ko(where). He has become a non entity after his electoral defeat in Tamil Nadu. He has to show that he is alive and kicking by making noises here and there. So this is one of his attempts to attract attention to himself. Poor guy. via DM iPad app
