Activists of Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) on Tuesday staged a demonstration in front of the head post office here urging the Centre to vote against Sri Lanka in the United Nations Human Rights Council.

The demonstrators, led by party’s State secretary R K R Anantharaman, demanded that the Sri Lankan President Rajapaksa be declared a ‘War Criminal’ for perpetrating inhuman atrocities over Tamils during the final phase of Eelam war. They also sought an end to attacks on Indian fishermen by the Sri Lankan Navy.

The activists shouted slogans against the Sri Lankan government and its president Rajapaksa.
