Prominent politician Vaiko told India's CNN-IBN news channel Gandhi misled the Tamil Tigers before signing a 1989 peace accord that saw the induction of an Indian peacekeeping force in Sri Lanka, the Indo-Asian News Service reported.
The politico-military Tamil Tigers have waged a secessionist campaign against the Sri Lankan government since the 1970s to secure a separate state for the Tamil majority regions in the north and east of Sri Lanka.
Gandhi was assassinated by a female Tamil Tiger suicide bomber during an election rally near India's Tamil Nadu capital, Chennai, in 1991.
