Issues like the plight of Sri Lankan Tamils will work against the ruling DMK in the Tamil Nadu assembly polls due in May, MDMK chief Vaiko said today.
The 2G spectrum scam and other issues like the plight of Sri Lankan Tamils will work against the ruling DMK in the Tamil Nadu assembly polls due in May, MDMK chief Vaiko said on Saturday.
While 2010 was the year of scams with the 2G spectrum allocation scam at the top, 2011 would be a year ofchanges in the political arena, he said.
He had time and again charged the Congress-led UPA with aiding the Sri Lankan army in its fight against LTTE in the last leg of the civil war.
Vaiko said Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapakse "cannot go scot-free" with regard to human rights violations allegedly committed by the Lankan army against Tamil civilians and said the international Tamil diaspora "would not spare him."
He said the issue would have its repercussions on DMK's poll prospects. He charged DMK President and Chief Minister M Karunanidhi with doing little to stop the war or mitigate the sufferings of the ethnic Tamils. (PTI)
