The AIADMK on Friday expressed unhappiness over the Sri Lankan Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa's criticism of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa and wanted the sentiment be conveyed to Colombo.
 
Raising the issue during zero hour in the Lok Sabha, party leader M. Thambidurai rejected Mr. Rajapaksa's allegation that Ms. Jayalalithaa had voiced concern over the plight of ethnic Tamils and condemned “war crimes” for political gains.
 
“Ms. Jayalalithaa had spoken on the basis of facts and it is condemnable to say that she did it for political gains,'' Mr. Thambidurai said.
 
He said a U.N. panel had claimed that 40,000 innocent Tamils were killed during the 2009 war and External Affairs Minister S M. Krishna had put the number of affected people at three lakh.
 
Mr. Thambidurai referred to the resolution passed by the Tamil Nadu Assembly seeking economic sanctions against Sri Lanka and Ms. Jayalalithaa's statement condemning Mr. Gotabaya Rajapaksa and said the Central government should convey its unhappiness to the Sri Lankan High Commission.
 
As he was speaking, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs V. Narayanasamy said a discussion had been slated on the issue.
 
Ms. Jayalalithaa had told the Assembly that thousands of Tamils were killed mercilessly by the military in the civil war. (thehindu)

    Thambidurai you must realise that UN figures were all incorrect. Jayalalitha's comments on ethnic tamils is bragging party politics. Sri Lanka is for sinhalese, tamils, muslims and burghers. She cannot run Sri Lanka and if she wants the tamils sent to Tamil Nadu that is a different story. Jayalalitha has no business to put her finger into our affairs. Mr Rajapakse has the right to comment. Don't try your hand on tamil issues and tamils in Sri Lanka will have to live according to the rules governed by the elected government. So please keep your views to yourself.

    Harry Lansburge Saturday, 13 August 2011 12:38 PM

    Srilanka is a Heaven compared to Madras, these guys are burning with jealousy.
    With China in the Picture they find it even more frustrating.
    Way to go Srilanka ,we have to learn to stand on our own feet showing solidarity to mother Lanka.
    God bless Mother Lanka.

    wasantha, you are correct.TN should not get involved in Sri Lankan politics.they must lookafter their own people.

    Konde Bendapucheenaa Saturday, 13 August 2011 04:57 AM

    So what,She is CM in TN,These are all politically motivated statements.

    freehit Saturday, 13 August 2011 03:39 PM

    Exactly so, Wasantha. These politicos play to their gallery to rob their votes.

    freehit Saturday, 13 August 2011 03:53 PM

    Every citizen in this country has a right to criticize the enemies of the country, Calistus, and the defence sec. very much so.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Saturday, 13 August 2011 06:03 AM

    The real issue here is undiplomatic action by the Defence Secretary who is a mere official in the government geting involved in matters of state which should best be left to the concerned Ministers and the President.

    I AGREE! I thought the same when i saw the thumbnail but then his mustash is longer

    Dave Saturday, 13 August 2011 07:19 AM

    OMG this guy looks like Late president Premadasa..

    Wasantha Saturday, 13 August 2011 07:19 AM

    We also have freedom of expression. What Gota said was correct. If TN is so concern about welfare of Tamils, TN should stop their thieves coming to rob our fish.

    Martin Thomas Saturday, 13 August 2011 09:19 PM

    Bear it in mind She is the Leader of over 40Million people when compared to Mahinda of half that population. You can not ignore the power and influence she hold among the leader of the central govenment. Gotha is only a goverment servent he has no business to get involved in political matters. What does he think he is? This shows his stupidity and ignorace.

    Gamin Saturday, 13 August 2011 09:29 PM

    Where were these AIADMK, MDMK & Jayalalitha when the LTTE were terrorizing & killing the innocent tamil people.
    They wiill be silent if the LTTE were still controlling these areas.
    .

    faqi Saturday, 13 August 2011 11:26 PM

    Just ignore these guys from Tamilnadu. They have enough problems of their own without digging into our country. They cannot even feed themselves. When the Tamils (LTTE) were massacring
    people here , not one word was heard out of these bafoons.

    Thomas Saturday, 13 August 2011 07:51 AM

    Karuna was supporting Congress govt. to suppress Tamils in Sri Lanka, therefore the Lankan govt should not be blamed for whatever happened in May, 2009. Sole responsibility lies with India.

    Thirdeye Sunday, 14 August 2011 01:38 AM

    Again Mr. Thambidurai's attempts in the parliament are for a political mileage!!!!

    Dalu Banda Sunday, 14 August 2011 03:32 AM

    Though the Gota is undiplomatic, what is said is correct and he used the language understandable to Politician in Tamil Nadu.
