CPI-led All Party Meeting calls for state-wide protest in Tamil Nadu

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 18 November 2008, 04:36 GMT]
The Central Government of India has failed to respond to the four demands, concerning the plight of Eezham Tamils, formulated in the previous All Party Meeting (APM) and forwarded to New Delhi by the Government of Tamil Nadu. Therefore, a second APM was convened on Monday by the initiative of the Communist Party of India (CPI), Tamil Nadu, chaired by its State Secretary D. Pandian, who announced a state-wide peaceful protest on November 25 to demonstrate to New Delhi on the resolve of the Tamil Nadu people for a single resolution: Immediate Ceasefire in Sri Lanka.

"New Delhi should break the silence on the demand for immediate ceasefire in Sri Lanka. If it fails to grasp the message of November 25 protest, the APM would meet again to decide the course of future agitation," proclaimed Mr. D. Pandian.

The DMK had responded to the participation in APM by wishing success but could not send its representatives to the APM as they were away participating at another event in Kovai. The AIDMK also sent a similar message.

Pandian said there should be no room for party-politics on the plight of Eezham Tamils.

Ms. Jayalalitha has said that there should be a ceasefire in Sri Lankan and that the Tamils should have a solution based on self-governance, Mr. Pandian said while responding to the questions by the reporters, after the closed-door deliberations with the other parties at Hotel Sahityan in Thyagaraja Nagar.
