MDMK chief Vaiko and 700 of his party supporters were arrested in Chhindwara near Sanchi on Friday as they tried to enter the city to hold their protest against visiting Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa who is scheduled to inaugurate a Buddhist University there.

Vaiko had planned a black flag protest against Rajapaksa in Sanchi. However, the Madhya Pradesh police stopped them from entering the city on Thursday night and many were reportedly sent back to Bhopal.

The political parties of Tamil Nadu, including the MDMK, the DMK and the AIADMK, have been protesting against the alleged violation of rights of ethnic Tamils in Sri Lanka during its war against the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

The parties had written to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh over the Sri Lankan President's visit to the country.

Rajapaksa, however, met the PM in Delhi on Thursday. The two reportedly discussed the Tamil resettlement issue among others.(iBN Live)

    It has become a usual thing... Think differently Mr. Vaiko

    Justice prevails here n there.

    Lobo Friday, 21 September 2012 09:18 AM

    Very primitive behavior but then again these are Indians so what more can you expect?

    Susa Friday, 21 September 2012 09:35 AM

    This is another drama like what Mervin Silva does usually. Vaiko's interfere is kind of Indians pre-planned item to show their respect to SL which is not true.

    Nadeesha Pradeep Friday, 21 September 2012 10:30 AM

    That is India.

    Siri Friday, 21 September 2012 10:40 AM

    Vaiko,who the hell are you to oppose our president's schedules,you drink Mediko and go Morokko.

    True Sri Lankan Friday, 21 September 2012 11:26 AM

    Well seems like all the politicians India or Sri Lanka have their own agendas...& work towards it...

    sach Friday, 21 September 2012 03:22 PM

    Dont insult the indians men, look at how GOI is preventing any unrest from happening. Will our gov ever do that?

    peeda mossa Friday, 21 September 2012 03:56 PM

    Instead of stirring communal feelings to earn votes, why don't you do some real community work to earn the respect of your people ?

    The most Idiotic Politician in Tamil nadu history no brains.This man should be brought in front of a criminal court for meeting Tamil tiger leader in sri lankan jungles being in the Indian parliament.He met that Criminal prabahakaran when there was a central govt voted by people in SL. So clearly he has breached All rules so where is the west or Pillay or that Bankimoon who is calling fairplay.

    No comments, .....
    Vaiko and Rajapaksa are the same, but different positions only.
    The people who are respect them now are the real stupids in this world.

    bandara Saturday, 22 September 2012 07:43 AM

    your President is visiting our country and we decide whom we oppose we do not need modayas in Sl to teach us that

    bandara Saturday, 22 September 2012 07:45 AM

    has any court in SL punished any politician, how many times has Mervin gone berserk
    pots calling kettles black

    Laurence Saturday, 22 September 2012 09:28 AM

    Vaiko a freak like him should be kept in the jail for even ever as he has nothing to do but mind Sri Lankan Business, No thanks Pissu Viko you can mind Indian business

    Lobo Sunday, 23 September 2012 06:46 AM

    India has an obligation to protect its visitors. They are a bit careful now after the way SL pilgrims and a football team were treated in TN and the issuance of the travel advisory.
