Movie director vows to chase ‘Tamil traitors’ from Tamil NaduMay 1st, 2009 - 9:35 pm ICT by IANS
Chennai, May 1 (IANS) Veteran movie director Bharti Raja Friday said that his attempt to chase all “Tamil traitors” from the state would begin May 4 from the temple town of Kanchipuram.
“All those who are Tamil traitors, supporting the intentions of the Sinhalese chauvinists against the Tamil ethnic minority in Sri Lanka have no place in Tamil Nadu,” Raja told reporters here.
Reacting to questions on his itinerary focussing only on Congress nominees’ constituencies, Raja said: “We are focussing against all those contestants whose parties have stabbed Tamils in the back and forced them to suffer a fate worse than those of Jews earlier in the Middle-East.”
Raja described Union Minister E.V.K.S. Elangovan as an “alien residing in the state purely as an economic refugee”.
Elangovan is the grandson of late Tamil social reformer Periyar E.V. Ramaswami Naicker.
Directors Seeman (presently on bail after being detained under the National Security Act for anti-national speeches), Sunderrajan and R.K. Selvamani besides a number sympathisers of the banned Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) also addressed the journalists.
Kanchipuram is situated 65 km from Chennai.
