CPI responds to LTTE statement

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 11 March 2008, 23:53 GMT]
The government of India should not provide any military help to Sri Lanka, said T. Pandian, the secretary of Tamil Nadu branch of the Communist Party of India (CPI) in an interview to the BBC Thamizhoasai on Tuesday. "The Sri Lankan government is engaging its armed forces against the Tamils in an uncivilised way. In such a situation, receiving the Sri Lankan military chief in India or Indian military officials visiting Sri Lanka to advice them should be avoided. The Sri Lankan government is unjust in every respect. Instead of condemning, it is despicable for Indian government to have any relations with it. Even if there was any before, that should be terminated now."

"The Indian government should openly advice Sri Lanka to stop all atrocities against the Tamil people," Mr. Pandian told BBC.

"India should only insist for a political solution. It shouldn't interfere with anything else. The concerned parties should stop the killing spree and seek political solution. "

He rejected the LTTE appeal to the people of Tamil Nadu to condemn the Central government of India. "What the Tamil Nadu people should do, they know. Others need not to tell them. Will others listen to us" he retorted. "The LTTE is a movement which doesn't listen to anybody. We don't want to talk to them."

"The Tamils should get a state of maximum powers in Sri Lanka. And the government of Sri Lanka should announce it."
