India’s Union home Minister, P. Chidambaram has reportedly conveyed to DMK chief M Karunanidhi, the Indian central government’s displeasure over a move by the DMK to pass a resolution to demand Tamil Eelam at a meeting held in Chennai, recently.
The meeting conducted by the Tamil Ealam Supporters Organization, an arm established to back the setting up of a separate tamil land in Sri Lanka has been revived by karunanidhi after three decades.
This move, the Times of India says, is seen as a political strategy to boost the flagging morale of Karunanidhi’s party, which lost the 2011 assembly polls, as well as to reiterate his importance as a Tamil leader.
“But such a meeting, to be organized by a key ally of the UPA government, could prove a huge embarrassment for India, whose stated international policy is for cordial ties with Sri Lanka” stated TOI.
The discussion between Chidambaram and Karunanidhi has taken place at the DMK chief’s CIT Colony residence in Chennai on Sunday.
The meeting comes a day after the Centre issued a notification extending the ban on the LTTE.
