Uproar in TN State Assembly over India’s refusal to allow Pirapaharan’s mother to land in Chennai

[TamilNet, Monday, 19 April 2010, 10:04 GMT]
Protesting against India’s refusal to allow LTTE Leader Mr. V. Pirapaharan’s mother Mrs. Velupillai Parvathi to land in Chennai airport for medical treatment in Tamil Nadu Friday night, major opposition parties in Tamil Nadu State Assembly moved a special attention-calling motion Monday, sources in Chennai said. Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Mr. M. Karunanithi, in response to the motion said that he knew nothing about the incident and came to know about in the papers the following morning. Heated arguments ensued the response creating uproar in the House. Consequently, the major opposition parties including Patali Makkal Kadchi, Indian Communist Party, Marxist Communist Party and Makkal Dravida Munetra Kazham staged a walkout. Jeyalalitha’s Anna Dravida Munetra Kazhakam party which had not initially participated in the moving of the motion joined in the walkout.

Mr. M. Karunanithi further said that Mrs. Parvathi had not informed him of her coming to Chennai for medical treatment and that he will contact the Central Government and get her permitted to enter India if she contacts him.

Meanwhile, Chennai Law College students boycotted lectures and gathered in front of the Law College where they demonstrated their protest against the Chief Minister and Tamil Nadu government for their inaction on Mrs. Parvathi being denied entry and sent back to Malaysia.

The leader of Puthiya Thamizhakam Kadchi, Krishnasuvami along with hundreds of his followers agitated in front of Chenni Municipal Council in support of the opposition parties’ protest.

Similar protest demonstrations are to take place all over Tamil Nadu, the sources added.
