The MDMK on Tuesday said it would hold state-wide demonstrations on January 28 to protest against the Centre and Tamil Nadu Governments for not bringing about a ceasefire in the north of Sri Lanka where the island military and the LTTE are engaged in a war.

In a statement in Chennai on Tuesday, MDMK chief Vaiko said External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee was yet to undertake his visit to Sri Lanka to hold talks with the island government as assured by the Centre to an all-party delegation led by Chief Minister M Karunanidhi in December last.

He said the Tamil Nadu Government was equally doing nothing to pressure the Centre and therefore workers of MDMK, an ally of AIADMK, would stage demonstrations condemning the state and Central governments at district headquarters on January 28.
