Justifying his remarks that Tamil Nadu would witness a blood bath if anything happened to LTTE leader V Prabakaran, MDMK leader Vaiko on Thursday said he had only warned the government of the consequences only with a good intention.

"As a true loyal citizen of India, I gave warning to the government only with the good intention and good faith", he told reporters in Chennai.

He said he had warned the government of a sitution that might emerge due to anger and agitation among the people if the Sri Lankan Tamil problem was not solved. "Such a situation should be averted", he said.

Ruling out any violence by his party men due to his remarks, Vaiko said his party never indulged in violence. "Even when I was arrested many times, my cadre never indulged in any sort of violence or created any law and order problem".

"Today, we have adopted a resolution in our general council meeting demanding the Centre lift the ban against the LTTE", he said.

He said creation of a separate home land for Sri Lankan Tamils alone could end the ethnic strife in the island.
