The DMK-led by Chief Minister M Karunanidhi will not come to power next year declared Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (MDMK) general secretary Vaiko here on Monday.

Talking to reporters after attending a private function at Aralvaimozhi, he said that Karunanidhi was conducting the World Classical Tamil Conference to make up for his handling of the Sri Lankan Tamils issue. "But people know the real reason and will not give the DMK a chance in the next assembly elections", he pointed out.

Mahinda Rajapaksa has killed lakhs of Sri Lankan Tamils. More died due to denial of medical aid and many more were sexually exploited, Vaiko charged and added that Rajapaksa should be treated as a war criminal and be produced at the International Court Justice for violating the Geneva Convention.

Pointing out that the Rajapaksa brothers had openly accepted that India had helped them by providing arms and financial assistance to perform the genocide in Sri Lanka, Vaiko said that the Rajapaksa government was settling Sinhalese people in places that were once occupied by the Tamils.

Buddhist temples were being constructed and inscriptions written by Tamil Kings were being demolished along with the cemeteries of LTTE men, Vaiko charged.

Several countries tried to bring a resolution against the Sri Lankan government for its war crimes in the United Nations but the Indian government worked hard to prevent this resolution. Now Karunanidhi was arranging for a meeting of the ruling party MPs with Rajapaksa, Vaiko said and termed it as a farce.
