Chennai, Dec 29: MDMK cadres today staged an agitation in front of the office of a private TV news channel here, which is scheduled to broadcast an interview of Sri Lankan president Mahinda Rajapaksa.
Earlier, party founder Vaiko garlanded the statue of the founder of the news organisation and claimed that the ideals the founder had protected were not being adhered to by the present management of the organisation.
