Chennai, April 9 (IANS) MDMK leader Vaiko, a known Tamil Tiger sympathiser, faces police action over his alleged inflammatory speech supporting the banned Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

Vaiko Wednesday said: “Prabhakaran lives in the hearts of Tamils. Tamils all over the world do not want even a small harm happening to him. If anything happens to him there will be a bloodbath in Tamil Nadu,” he said.
