Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy today criticised MDMK leader Vaiko’s comments at a public meeting in Chennai, warning of a “bloodbath in Tamil Nadu if anything happened” to LTTE leader V Prabhakaran and demanded his detention under the National Security Act.

In a party statement in Chennai, Swamy termed Vaiko’s remarks yesterday as “highly objectionable, anti-national,” and deserving legal action.

Swamy said Prabhakaran was a “proclaimed offender” who was wanted in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, and warning of a ‘bloodbath´ in Tamil Nadu if he was harmed amounted to “incitement of violence and disloyalty to the nation.”

Terming the statement made by Vaiko as “offensive,” Swamy urged the Chief Minister M Karunanidhi to initiate legal action against the MDMK leader and detain him under the NSA.
