MDMK leader Vaiko criticised India's decision to lend 'Kapilavastu relics' to Sri Lanka for an exposition and said the move was a betrayal of Indian Government against the Tamils.

The sacred Kapilavastu Relics were among the most protected and revered relics in the world and now kept at the National Museum in New Delhi.

India and Sri Lanka signed an agreement in Colombo on organisation of the exposition of the sacred Kapilavastu Relics in Sri lanka from 20th August to 5th September.

The agreement was signed following a request by President Mahinda Rajapakse to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to provide an opportunity to the followers of Buddhism to pay homage to the relics.
