PMK demands New Delhi to withdraw military aid to Sri Lanka

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 30 September 2008, 20:38 GMT]
The Pattali Makkal katchi (PMK, Toilers' Party) in Tamil Nadu staged Tuesday a protest rally in front of the Sri Lankan Deputy High Commission in Chennai, where more than 2000 Tamil activists took part. Welcoming the Tamil Nadu leaders who have extended their support to Eelam Tamils at a critical juncture, Dr. S. Ramadoss, the founder leader of the PMK, urged the remaining leaders to extend their support to pressurise the Central government of India to withdraw military support to the Sri Lankan government which is engaged in a genocide against the Eelam Tamils.

Addressing an emotional gathering, Dr. Ramadoss encouraged the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, Kalaignar M. Karunanidhi, who has earlier extended support to Eelam Tamils, also to come forward disregarding any pressure from the Centre in India to exert pressure on New Delhi to withdraw its support to the Sri Lankan government. Even if Delhi decides to remove Kalaignar from his office in Tamil Nadu as Chief Minister for the sake of his support to Eelam Tamils, we would get him in power, he proclaimed.

K.S. Mani, the leader of the PMK party, Poet Arivumathi, Artist Santhanam, and Film Director Seeman also addressed the participants. All of them were condemned New Delhi for extending military support to Sri Lankan instead of demanding Sri Lanka to resolve the conflict by peaceful means.

The rally, which began at 11:00 a.m. concluded at 1:00 p.m., resolving its support to the right to self determination of Eelam Tamils and condemning the Sri Lankan state for genocide and the New Delhi for abetting the anti-Tamil agenda of the Sri Lankan government.
