Ensure safety of Lankan cricketers: Swamy to Jaya



New Delhi: Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy will campaign for President's rule in Tamil Nadu if Chief Minister Jayalalithaa "does not take measures" to ensure safety of Sri Lankan cricketers visiting the state.

In a statement, he said Jayalalithaa should take necessary steps to ensure that the visitors from Sri Lanka are not harmed.

"The call by the chief minister for not allowing Sri Lankan cricketers to play in Chennai is ridiculous... If the chief minister is incapable of preventing such lawlessness, she is not discharging her office...," he said.

"If one more such violent organised incident takes place, I shall campaign to have President's rule in the state," he said.
