Colombo deports Thirumavalavan, rejects participation in Parvathi Amma's funeral

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 22 February 2011, 10:01 GMT]
Indian parliamentarian Thol Thirumavalavan, the leader of Viduthalai Chiruththaikal Kadchi, was denied entry to the island Monday night when he arrived at Katunayake International Airport in Colombo to take part in the funeral of Parvathi Amma, the mother of LTTE leader Velupillai Pirapaharan. After being deported back to Chennai from Colombo airport, Mr. Thirumavalavan told media in Tamil Nadu that the deportation was an insult to the entire India and urged the governments of Tamil Nadu and India to condemn his deportation from Colombo.



"The Sri Lankan mission in Tamil Nadu should be immediately removed," Thirumavalavan declared Tuesday.

Last year, Rajpaksa insulted Thirumavalvan when he met him in Colombo, as part of a delegation from Tamil Nadu government.

Rajapaksa brothers and the former commander of Sri Lanka Army Sarath Fonseka, have all gone on record characterising Tamil Nadu leaders who extend support to Eezham Tamil cause as 'jokers'.

New Delhi and Colombo, having strategic partnership in safeguarding establishments have defense agreements and secret protocols, working against the interests of 60 million Tamils in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, said an upcountry Tamil politician in Colombo.

Thirumavalavan was present last year at the funeral of 86-year-old Thiruvenkadam Velupillai, the father of Mr. Pirapaharan.
