Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jeyalalitha Jeyaram and DMK Chief M. Karunanidhi should focus on the welfare of the suffering Tamils in South India without talking of establishing a state of Eelam, Minister Wimal Weerawansa said on Saturday.
Addressing a function in Ampara, Construction and Common Amenities Minister Weerawansa said the Tamils in Sri Lanka were leading better lifestyles than the Tamils in South India.
He charged that both Ms. Jeyalalitha and Mr. Karunanidhi were deceiving the innocent Tamils in Tamil Nadu and only concentrating in building their images.
“They are working according to the agenda of making Sri Lanka hub of the imperialists,” he said.
He said the Sri Lankan government was focusing on rebuilding North and the East which were under the clutches of the LTTE in the past.
