Jayalalithaa slams police for 'inaction' on ads featuring LTTE chief

(TH)Chennai (PTI): Terming the fast by Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katch leader Thol Thirumavalavan on the Sri Lankan Tamils issue as a "drama", AIADMK chief J Jayalalithaa on Monday slammed the police for "failing" to take action against the VCK for issuing advertisements in news papers with pictures of LTTE supremo V Prabahakaran.
