Versatile playback and Karnatic singer Unni Krishnan from South India cancelled his concert in Jaffna at the last minute yesterday after the Eelam People's Democratic Party (EPDP) has objected to his arrival because the singer is alleged to have made false accusations against the Party Leader Douglas Devananda.

The Karnatic concert was to take place in Jaffna yesterday (Saturday).

The EPDP carried out a public poster campaign stating that the vocalist should apologize to the local Tamil politician ahead of the planned concert.

The poster in Tamil stated that Unni Krishan has passed irrevocable negative comments about Douglas Devananda, our leader, and so he should not step on 'our soil' and perform his Karnatic concert. He should profusely say 'sorry' it read.
