Joining the statement war in Tamil Nadu on the Sri Lankan Tamil issue, Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam (DMDK) leader Vijayakant on Sunday accused Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) president and Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi of betraying the Tamils in the island nation by failing to protect them during the civil war that ended in 2009.
In a statement here, he said that when the Sri Lankan Tamils, especially those in the Eelam region, were hoping that Tamil Nadu and its Chief Minister would protect them during the ethnic war in the island nation, Mr. Karunanidhi failed to protect them. On the other hand, he even abetted the butchery of those Tamils, Mr. Vijayakant alleged.
He described the fast undertaken by Mr. Karunanidhi in April 2009 condemning the Sri Lankan Government's massive drive against Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, which resulted in the decimation of a substantial number of Tamils, as mere “eyewash.”
While Mr. Karunanidhi ended his half-day fast saying that Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram had told him that the war had ended in Sri Lanka, “neither the war nor the ethnic annihilation” had come to an end then, Mr. Vijayakant lamented.
According to the DMDK leader, it was not only the Indian Government, which is despised by the Sri Lankan Tamils, but also Mr. Karunanidhi, “a Tamilian by birth,” who has betrayed Tamils.
you Indians are the biggest headache for people of Sri Lanka ...!!!

Why can't these TN Goons understand that the Majority Lankans who are civilized & non terrorist wanted the LTTE completely wiped off from the earth surface of S.L. It happened to be that 99.9% of the LTTE terrorists were of Tamil ethinicity. Hence they all pereished. Why are not the other Citizens of S.L.Sinhalese,Muslims,Malays,Burghers who got killed by the LTTE of ANY CONCERN TO YOU GOONS IN TN ?

Yes Karunanidhi would have protected Tamils from the cruel leader of LTTE ,Velupillai Prabhakaran

DMDK sees the only way to get some political mileage is through beating up support for the LTTE cause and as always, they will fail miserably.
