Don’t eulogise Prabhakaran: Congress legislatorOctober 21st, 2008 - 11:04 pm ICT by IANS
Chennai, Oct 21 (IANS) A section of the Tamil Nadu unit of the Congress Tuesday slammed the alleged eulogising of Tamil Tigers chief V. Prabhakaran by a few regional parties.”Attempts by a section of the Tamil film industry to hail the LTTE leader Prabhakaran, who murdered (former prime minister) Rajiv Gandhi in cold blood is reprehensible. We strongly condemn these moves that seem to be actively supported by a few regional parties,” Congress legislator C. Gnanasekharan told reporters.
He also started a campaign against converting the Sri Lankan Tamils’ issue into a move to popularise the LTTE in the state by exhorting his supporters to send telegrams to Congress President Sonia Gandhi.
According to Gnanasekharan, a few thousand telegrams were sent within a few hours after the start of the campaign earlier in the day.
