Mumbai, Mar 20 :  MDMK chief Vai Gopalsamy aka Vaiko Wednesday vowed to hold protests during Indian Premier League (IPL) matches if Sri Lankan players took part.




“We will not allow Sri Lankans to participate in IPL. Wherever they play in India, we will protest,” he told a rally of Tamils here.

Vaiko accused both the DMK and the UPA government of betraying the Tamil community.

“DMK is known for indulging in chicanery. The latest move by the DMK is a smokescreen to cover up its opportunistic tendencies,” said the veteran politician who was once in the DMK.

Vaiko blamed Sri Lankan President Mahindra Rajapakse and his military for the death of a large number of Tamil civilians in the war against the Tamil Tigers.
