The MDMK General Secretary Vaiko on Wednesday criticised the Centre as well as BJP-led Madhya Pradesh Government for inviting Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa to a function in Sanchi near Bhopal. “Despite knowing that Rajapaksa is solely responsible for the genocide of innocent Tamils in Sri Lanka, the Shivraj Singh Chouhan Government in Madhya Pradesh has invited him and the Centre endorsed his visit,” Vaiko, who arrived here from Chennai with over 1,000 MDMK supporters, told reporters before heading to Sanchi. Rajapaksa is scheduled to participate in the foundation-laying ceremony of International Buddhist University at Sanchi on Friday. — PTI
