TamilNadu leaders urge Indian PM not to visit Sri Lanka on independence Day

[TamilNet, Monday, 31 December 2007, 18:03 GMT]
Several Tamilnadu leaders, including K. Veeramani, President, Dravidar Kazhagam; Thol.Thirumavalavan, President, Viduthalaich Chi'ruththaika'l Kadchi; Suba. Veerapandiyan of Dravidar Iyakka Thamizhar Pearavai and Era. Janardhanan, President, Ulakath Thamizhar Pearavai took part in a demonstration opposite Chennai's Memorial Hall Monday to protest the Indian Prime Minister's proposed participation in Sri Lankan Independence Day celebrations in February 2008.



The leaders highlighted the anti-Tamil atrocities of the genocidal Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL) which killed not only thousands of Tamils of Tamil Eelam, but more than 300 Indian Tamil fishermen since 1982.

DK President Veeramani said that the Central Government was not unaware of how the GoSL was trying to prevent the implementation of the Sethusamudram Shipping Canal Project through its agents, therefore, he requested the Indian Prime Minister not to attend the Independence Day celebrations of Sri Lanka, and also not to send any other Indian dignitary.

Thol. Thirumavalavan said that the proposed visit of Manmohan Singh was a "disrespect" to the Tamil people. He added that Singh's visit was tantamount to abetting the genocide of Tamils in Sri Lanka. He called upon the Tamilnadu Chief Minister to intervene and prevent the Prime Minister from going to Colombo.

Hundreds of cadres raised powerful slogans in support of the Eelam Tamils and their liberation struggle.
