Kanimozhi hands over symbolic resignation

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 15 October 2008, 09:45 GMT]
Kanimozhi Karunanidhi, the daughter of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Kalaignar Karunanidhi and a Member of Indian Parliament submitted Wednesday her resignation saying that it was for the party to take an "appropriate decision at appropriate time" on her resignation following the two-weeks ultimatum given to New Delhi by the Tamil Nadu government to exert pressure on Colombo to declare a ceasefire, The Times of India reported.

The resolution passed on Tuesday was applicable to Rajya Sabha members also, the paper quoted DMK sources as saying.

39-year-old Kanimozhi, a poet and writer-activist, has been an outspoken supporter of Eezham Tamils.

She entered politics in June 2007 in the wake of the sensational exit of Dayanidhi Maran from the Unicon Council of Ministers.

The DMK leader has been reportedly pressing for a ministerial portfolio for her in the Union (Indian federal) Council of Ministers.

Ms. Kanimozhi has been described by Mr. Karunanidhi as having his poetic skills, love for the Tamil language and hard work.
