DMK to submit Tamil meet resolutions to UN: Karunanidhi

September 4th, 2012 - 8:43 pm ICT by IANS  

Chennai, Sep 4 (IANS) DMK president M.Karunanidhi Tuesday said that his party will send the resolutions passed at the Tamil Eelam Supporters Organisation (TESO) meet here to the United Nations (UN).

Speaking to reporters here, Karunanidhi said: “Efforts are on to submit the copies of resolutions passed at the TESO meeting to the UN by M.K. Stalin and T.R. Baalu. Soon I will announce when these two would submit the resolutions to the UN and other foreign missions.”

He said one of the resolutions passed at the TESO meeting is that the Tamils in Sri Lanka have lost their livelihood and they are on the run to save their and their children’s lives.

Queried about the party’s reaction to the Tamil Nadu government’s order to send back two football teams from Sri Lanka from here, Karunanidhi was critical of it, saying it is normal for sportsmen and cricketers from India to visit Sri Lanka and players from Sri Lanka visiting India.

He said all that DMK is saying is that the Sri Lankan defence personnel should not be trained in India and the issue has been raised in parliament as well.

On the proposed visit of Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa to India, Karunanidhi said the DMK will not accept with open heart any warm reception to him as he was “responsible for the killings of lakhs of Tamils”.
