DMK pulls out of Lankan delegation

DMK President M. Karunanidhi on Sunday ruled out his party’s presence in a Parliamentary delegation visiting Sri Lanka this week to assess the rehabilitation and political process, saying past experiences showed that there was no use of such visits, The Hindu reported.

“DMK never planned (to be part of the delegation). There are past experiences to show that there is no use of such visits. Therefore, nobody from DMK is undertaking the visit,” he told reporters here.

Lok Sabha MP T.K.S. Elangovan, was the DMK’s lone representative in the al-—party delegation to be led by Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha, Sushma Swaraj.

Earlier, a delegation of DMK and Congress MPs from Tamil Nadu had visited Sri Lanka in 2010 and its members included Mr. Karunanidhi’s daughter and Rajya Sabha MP Kanimozhi, T.R. Baalu (both from DMK) and Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi founder Thol Thirumavalavan.

With the DMK ruling out its participation, the present delegation, which is visiting the neighbouring country from April 16-22, is now void of representation from the two big parties in the state as the ruling AIADMK has already pulled out its representative.

Expressing displeasure over the itinerary, AIADMK leader and Chief Minister Jayalalithaa had announced pulling out her party’s lone representative A. William Rabi Bernard from the team.

Ms. Jayalalithaa had slammed the “ant-Tamil” approach of Sri Lanka as regards rehabilitation of internally displaced Tamils, Lankan navy’s “attacks” on fishermen, Colombo’s recent objection to KNPP project on radiation grounds.

The chief minister had also said that she did not want the visit to be a “mere eye-wash like the previous one” comprising MPs including Ms. Kanimozhi

    why do you think only about negatives of tamil nadu. The positives are much more than sri lanka.. check tamil nadu on wikipedia and compare against sri lanka.. one more thing.. tamil nadus contribution to indian economy is huge and one of the most industralized states of india.. check the progress on automobile manufactuing, information technology and infrastructure developement to see where sri lanka is sitting.. even with lower literacy (81%) if they can achive this, with higher literacy % sri lanka is bringing foreign engineers to build bridges.. which is very funny.

    Copy cat!!! He is the looser any way!!

    Rohan Sunday, 15 April 2012 10:52 AM

    Jayalalitha had to provide leadership to Kaunanidhi in this! Can Karunanidhi list the presents Kanimozhi received from the President last time around?

    kalum Sunday, 15 April 2012 11:28 AM

    So now Tamilnadu against the Sri lanka.

    SLPatriot Monday, 16 April 2012 04:49 AM

    if u'll like it or not we are not a self dependent country and we can't live without the support of India, refer our history (from the day Vijayan came till today...)

    mike Sunday, 15 April 2012 11:15 AM

    Jayalalitha and karunanidhi don't want to see the sri lankan tamils doing fine and living in peace. They just only like to listen to all the false stories of the L.T.T.E paid and dependant NGOs and make big issues and give publicity. Because they too (Karunanidhi) is also starving dreaming to have a tamil homeland separated from india. This is very clear to all sri lankans now.

    u want pakistan to come ?

    lankashantha Sunday, 15 April 2012 11:27 AM

    Sri Lanka Government must take note that this woman can stand for the Indian prime minister post in the future elections with her alliance in other state.

    lal Sunday, 15 April 2012 11:46 AM

    Those TN jokers are afraid of finding out that facys that Tamils in Sri Lanka have better lives than in that squalid Tamil Nadu State TN has lower literacy, higher infant mortality, lower per capita income than Sri Lanka. They know the facts from Indian Bureau of Statistics. No need to come to Sri Lanka and embarass themselves. Wake up India and treat your citizens as humans..

    sameera Sunday, 15 April 2012 12:40 PM

    who cares of all these culprits...We dont want India fellows to interfere in this country and let them go to hell. All of them are opportunist...

    Feddy Monday, 16 April 2012 01:22 PM

    Karunindi is shameful to come to Sri Lanka for all the lies he and his party with,Jayalitha etc cannot comprehend what the Sri Lankan Government did inspite of all the pressure from Tamil Nadu, brought the people together and destroyed the Tamil terrorist.. How can he ever step into Sri Lanka for slandering a Soverign country which is none of his business, He is and his cronies in Tamil Nadu is a disgrace to Indias protocol.

    Noor Sunday, 15 April 2012 12:31 PM

    Well, it is up to you come or not, I feel you should come here and see the Island whether really need it to be separated for Tamils geographically instead of sitting in Tamil Nadu and speaking separate land for Tamils to media.

    Feddy Monday, 16 April 2012 01:30 PM

    Yes the people are hardworking and the credit to the people not Karunandhi who should be acting for Tamil Nadu not inteferring in the affairs of a Soverign country like Sri Lanka who does not interfere in Tamil Nadu affairs. Positive or negative is no concern for others. Simple mind your own business.Helps.

    They are better thank your stinky street poopers

    raja Sunday, 15 April 2012 12:36 PM

    you are absolutely right. But, you made decision because you want to match with AMDK. At the same time, I agree with you that sending this team will not do anything good to any Sri Lankans or bring peace in Sri Lanka. Likewise, Robert Blake visited Sri Lanka to achieve something in Sri Lanka. Still there are abductions, and extra jdicial killings are going on in Sri Lanka.

    Bloody wanker - that he is !!!

    Jegan Sunday, 15 April 2012 04:59 PM

    Person who called them as "TN jokers" is now in jail..guess who??

    wernie Sunday, 15 April 2012 04:57 PM

    Noo's comment should be noted down.

    hasthi Monday, 16 April 2012 08:41 AM

    It is his loss. To give unbiassed truthful and fair comment you have to see with own eyes, talk to genuine people rather than rely on doctored information. The fact he is willing to forego such a good opportunity tells all of his sincerety.

    It could be that if he sees things different to what he has been talking about, he may find it difficult to spout nonsense again (provided he has an iota of fairness). But now it shows he is not a fair guy.

    If that is the kind of guy he is, it is in everybody's best interest he sticks to his backyard.
