NPC member Ananthi thanks Jayalalithaa for CHOGM resolution

[TamilNet, Friday, 25 October 2013, 22:20 GMT]
Ms Ananthi Sasitharan, popular member of the Northern Provincial Council (NPC), thanked Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Ms Jayaalithaa on Friday, for initiating and passing a unanimous resolution in the Tamil Nadu State Assembly, urging New Delhi to completely boycott the CHOGM scheduled to take place in Sri Lanka in November. We are already grateful for the two earlier resolutions brought out by the Tamil Nadu assembly. The present resolution, calling for boycott of Sri Lanka accused of war crimes and genocide, convinces us further on the umbilical cord relationship we have, Ananthi said, adding, “I request her with affection to continue to voice for us and to bring the culprits of genocide to justice.

As one who has witnessed the war, as a mother of three children, as a leader representing thousands of women still searching for the missing ones and as a woman who has seen the atrocities committed on women, I am touched by the concern shown by Ms Jayalalithaa towards our plight, Ananthi told media in Jaffna.
