V Gopalsamy also known as Vaiko is an Indian politician. He is the founder and General Secretary of the Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (MDMK), a political party active mainly in the state of Tamil Nadu. He is known for his vocal support of Tamil people in Sri Lanka and LTTE.

V Gopalasamy was born in Kalingapatty near Sankarankovil, Madras Presidency (now Tamil Nadu). He graduated with a Bachelor of arts degree in economics from St. Xavier’s College, Palayamkottai and masters from Presidency College, Chennai. He obtained his bachelor’s degree in law from Madras Law College.

Vaiko was a part of Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (D.M.K)] and was formerly seen as the ideological protege of former Chief Minister of Tamil , M. Karunanidhi. Vaiko was detained for more than an year in 1976-77 during emergency and for 40 days on charges of organizing black flag demonstration against former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s visit to Tamil Nadu in Oct 1977. He has been arrested multiple times for peaceful demonstrations especially during the 1986-87 anti Hindi agitations.

He entered the Rajya Sabha in 1978 and has been member of the Upper House for three terms. He has also been elected to the Lok Sabha twice. In 1993, Vaiko started MDMK due to differences with Karunanidhi amid rumblings that Karunanidhi promoted his son M. K. Stalin to succeed him.

Vaiko was known as “Tiger Of Parliament” due to his vociferous speeches in Parliament. Vaiko protested against Kerala’s demand for a new dam at Mullaperiyar and proposed building of dams in Pambar and Siruvani. Vaiko also supported national interlinking of rivers and Sethusamudram Shipping Canal Project. Vaiko filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in Madras High Court requesting closure of the copper smelting plant of Sterlite Industries in Tuticorin which did not follow the waste management procedures correctly and leading to the closure of the plant.

Vaiko often goes on foot marches along with his party cadres to attract attention to issues.
