Charging the Congress, heading the UPA government at the Centre was following anti-Tamil policies, MDMK leader Vaiko on Monday asserted that the Congress would be routed in the forthcoming Parliament elections.
After inaugurating the Marumalarchi Labour Front (MLF) at the Neyveli Lignite Corporation (NLC) power plant here, he said the people of Idinthakarai had been protesting for more than two years against the Koodankulam Power Plant (KKNPP) and pointed out that his party had been supporting the agitation from the beginning.
On the issue of Katchatheevu, he said the islet belonged to Tamil Nadu and the fact was clearly shown in the records of Raja of Ramnathapuram. But, the Central government had filed an affidavit stating that Katchatheevu did not belong to India but only to Sri Lanka. The 1974-76 agreement on Katchatheevu, which was signed without Parliament approval was null and void, he asserted.
He asserted that Congress would see its end soon in the coming Lok Sabha elections because of its anti-Tamil, anti-fishermen and anti-Eelam policies. He said his protest against Sterlite Factory would continue till it was finally shutdown.
