CHEN­NAI: BJP ally MDMK has op­posed the par­tic­i­pa­tion of Sri Lankan Pres­i­dent Mahinda Ra­japaksa in the May 26 swear­ing-in cer­e­mony of Naren­dra Modi as PM, say­ing his pres­ence would hurt the feel­ings of the Tamil people. Party founder Vaiko claimed Congress was shown the door by the people of TN for al­legedly help­ing Colombo in its pur­suit against LTTE, “in which thou­sands of Tamil civil­ians were killed.” Vaiko asked Modi and BJP chief Ra­j­nath Singh not to al­low Ra­japaksa to at­tend the swear­ing in.
