Monday, 25 February 2013 - 12:12



Members of the Dravidar Viduthalai Kazhagam will hold a protest in the city today against the presence of Sri Lankan players in Indian Premier League 2013.

A release from the Urban District Secretary of the outfit, N. Panneer Selvam, says the presence of Sri Lankan players in Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad has hurt the sentiments of Tamils.

He has cited the protest against and the subsequent absence of Pakistan players in the last year’s IPL to underscore his point.

In another development, the Thanthai Periyar Dravidar Kazhagam has said that it would protest in front of four industries that had planned to participate in a cotton garment exhibition in Sri Lanka.
