Karunanidhi announces human chain demonstration on Eelam issue

[TamilNet, Friday, 17 October 2008, 11:31 GMT]
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Kalaignar Karunanidhi has announced that a human chain demonstration would be held in Chennai on October 21 to remind the Union Government of India about the state's ultimatum on the national question of Eezham Tamils in the island of Sri Lanka. The resolution demanded the Central Government to take measures to ensure that there is no war in Sri Lanka and that peace prevails in Tamil homeland.

He appealed to the people: especially women, students and workers-to take part in the agitation in large numbers in order to portray a show of strength that will make New Delhi rethink its stance.

The all-party meeting organized by the State government had given an ultimatum that if no action was taken within a fortnight on the Sri Lankan Tamil issue, all 40 members of parliament from Tamil Nadu would resign en masse.

Scheduled to be held exactly a week after the all-party meeting, this human chain event proposes to reiterate the Tamil people's demands to the Union Government.
