[TamilNet, Saturday, 03 January 2009, 15:58 GMT]
Condemning the inaction by the Indian Central Government, even after the unanimous declaration by the State Assembly of Tamil Nadu to demand immediate ceasefire in Sri Lanka, the Communist Party of India Tamil Nadu branch on Saturday announced it would launch a protest on January 06 in Tamil Nadu's capital city Chennai. Meanwhile, Pazha. Nedumaran, the leader of the Tamil National Movement has called for black flag protest against the Indian Prime Minister who is scheduled to visit the annual congregation of Non Resident Indians (NRI) on January 08. Meanwhile, the leader of VCK, Tholmavazhavan has said New Delhi's ignorance stands exposed as it failed to satisfy even the simplest demand to send its foreign minister to Colombo to stop the war.

Several leaders have called for uprising in Tamil Nadu in the aftermath of Sri Lankan forces entering Ki'linochchi town in Vanni and the indiscriminate attacks on civilian targets in Vanni.

The CPI State Secretary T. Pandian in his statement said the state council of the party had resolved to extend support to the movements that protest against the New Delhi as it has ignored for a prolonged period of time the requests from Tamil Nadu to impress upon Colombo to put an end to the genocidal war.
