'Timely action from Tamil Nadu expected'

[TamilNet, Friday, 22 May 2009, 11:02 GMT]
The Eezham Tamils are ever grateful to all political parties of Tamil Nadu that upheld their cause, irrespective of electoral politics and its outcome determined by national and state level equations. The Eezham Tamils are especially grateful to the two major political parties, the DMK and the AIDMK, for firmly voicing for the creation of Tamil Eelam as the ultimate solution to the crisis. It is now time that a resolution to this effect has to be enacted in the Tamil Nadu State Assembly to inspire course of action in India, international community and in the Tamil diaspora, said veteran liberation fighter Ki Pi Aravinthan in France, Sunday. This is a possible and affordable action Tamil Nadu can undertake immediately to guarantee the future of Eezham Tamils and to respect the thousands laying down their life upholding Tamil dignity, he said.

“There are some who mistake the poll outcome as an endorsement to India’s Sri Lanka policy or in other words ‘war alliance’. They overlook the fact that both the major parties of Tamil Nadu, behind which others have to rally, were specific of their support to Tamil Eelam.”

Chief Minister Karunanidhi has to take an immediate initiative in the State Assembly in this respect and all political parties who went to the people, tagged behind either DMK or AIDMK in the election, should support the move, Aravinthan said.

Mr. Aravinthan, a former militant of the times of Sivakumaran was recently involved in mobilising the voice of the diaspora to re-mandate the Vaddukkoaddai Resolution, calling for the creation of an independent and sovereign Tamil Eelam.
