Chennai, Feb. 6, (ANI): Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi on Friday appealed to all parties to speak in one voice and adopt a united stand on Sri Lankan Tamil issue.
The Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) chief said a solution to the issues was elusive because of the infighting among Tamil groups in the Sri Lanka.
“There is no unanimity here also on the issue. If all of us remain united, the Tamil race in Sri Lanka will be saved,” Karunanidhi said.
Karunanidhi also expressed his unhappiness with the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) for its current stand of non-cooperation on the issue.
He, however, turned down the request to boycott the upcoming Lok Sabha polls and said, All parties should forget their political differences on this question as it did not have any connection with the Lok Sabha polls.
The Chief Minister denied that Central Government is a silent spectator and said: The Centre had asked Sri Lanka to ensure the safety of civilian Tamils caught in the war zone in the north and allow them to cross over to safe zones.” (ANI)
