Activists of the Naam Thamizhar Iyakkam, protesting against the Sri Lankan president Mahinda Rajapaksa’s Tirupathi visit on February 8, picketed an express train at the Puducherry railway station on Wednesday. 

Police arrested 22 activists picketing the Howrah Express.

The activists, led by Arumaidass, raised slogans against the Central government. The train was delayed by half an hour. Thirty-four activists of a human rights organisation, staging protest near a temple run by Tirupathi trust, were arrested.

Federation of People’s Rights secretary K Sugumaran, in a statement, urged the Central government not to allow the visit and added that the international community held Rajapaksa responsible for the massacre of Tamils during the final phases of Eelam war in Sri Lanka.

He said that Rajapaksa had openly said the devolution of power in Tamil-dominated areas would not be implemented.

Condemning the decision to go ahead with the proposed visit, he said the Central government should, instead, support the Tamils’ cause in the island nation. (Source: New Indian Express)

    If tamil nadu separates from India then sri lanka will be screwed. Try to think things out before opening your mouth. And no sri lankand are not loved by the chinese or pakistanis. They dont care about sri lankan beaches.

    Why not . Tigers were put down well and truly. Three cheers to Mr Rajapakse for doing this. Tigers will never come back although the diaspora will try their best.
    Are you starting a tiger regime? flat hopes master.

    Saman Thursday, 07 February 2013 11:02 AM

    That will never happen Jilbert. Tigers got what they wanted and was eradicated. Let the tigers come up and they will get the same treatment.. Fishing tigers is no problem and our brave soldiers will fish the tigers and get rid of them.

    Who will Protect the Sri Lankan Sinhalese people, once TamilNadu gets a foothold in Eelam, in the North and East of the Island Nation? Will India come to Sri Lanka's rescue, or will she have to depend on other Super Powers? The Government of India should be thinking about this possibility, before acceding to TamilNadu's demands.

    Rohan Nayer Thursday, 07 February 2013 03:20 AM
