Jayalalitha to Centre: Take action against Karunanidhi for LTTE support

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 13 February 2008, 16:57 GMT]
Jayalalitha, leader of All India Anna Dravida Munnetta Kazhakam (AIADMK), the major opposition party in Tamil Nadu on Wednesday urged the Centre to take action against Chief Minister M Karunanidhi for his "support" to the LTTE. A resolution adopted at the party's General Council said that Mr. Karunanidhi, after coming back to power, not only remained silent over LTTE supporters, but also went a step ahead and eulogized the death of S P Thamilchelvan, LTTE's former political head. It labeled Karunanidhi's elegy "an act of treason" and alleged that it would pave way for secessionism.

The resolution condemned the Indian Government for not initiating any action against Karunanidhi.

The General Council of the AIADMK alleged that Tamil Nadu had become a haven for "extremists" and "terrorist forces" and had therefore become an "arms godown".

The state Police department had become inept and there was no protection for the people, the resolution said.

Another resolution favored a political solution to end the sufferings of Sri Lankan Tamils and urged India to play a role to find an early solution to the ethnic crisis and restore peace in the island.
