The Sri Lankan Tamils Movement, formed by several pro-Tamil parties, including MDMK and CPI, will stage a state-wide black flag demonstration to oppose Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapakse’s visit to India on June 8, MDMK general secretary Vaiko today said here.

The demonstration will be held outside the Sri Lankan Deputy High Commission here, he said in a statement.

Black flag demonstrations would be held in district headquarters across the state also to condemn the Indian government for "welcoming him", he said.

A vociferous Eelam supporter, Vaiko alleged India had assisted Colombo in its war against LTTE, which had resulted in the killing of thousands of minority Tamil civilians towards the end of the conflict last year.


During his June 8 visit to New Delhi, Rajapakse is expected to meet Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
