New Delhi: The Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (MDMK) leader Vaiko and his party workers staged a protest at Jantar Mantar on Thursday morning against newly elected Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, police said.
The protestors have been detained and taken to Parliament Street police station, a senior police officer said.
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.
