BJP leader seeks ban on Prabhakaran’s birth anniversary celebrations in Tamil Nadu


India's Bharatiya Janatha Party (BJP) leader Dr. Subramanian Swamy has asked the Indian government to ban a move in Tamil Nadu to celebrate the birth anniversary of LTTE leader Velupillai Prabhakaran.

Dr. Swamy today urged India's Home Minister Rajnath Singh to issue a directive to the Tamil Nadu government to ban the move to celebrate birth anniversary of slain LTTE chief, who was responsible for the assassination of India's former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, PTI reported.

"These celebrations are being organized by MDMK leader Vaiko. MDMK must be ejected from the NDA and Vaiko should be locked up under the National Security Act," Swamy said in a press release.

The pro-LTTE Tamil Nadu political leader, the general secretary of the Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (MDMK), V. Goplasamy aka Vaiko Thursday called for grand celebrations of the 60th birth anniversary of slain terrorist leader on November 26.

The BJP leader said that a directive should be issued under Article 256, which mandated the Indian state to ensure compliance with the laws made by Parliament and any existing laws which apply in that state.
