Power and Energy Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka says DMK leader M. Karunanidhi who personally fought for a separate country for Tamil speaking people in India should first hold a referendum in Tamil Nadu for that demand.
Minister Ranawaka said the former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister should also ask New Delhi to hold the long overdue referendum in Kashmir which was passed as a resolution at the United Nations in 1948, before he demands a referendum for a Tamil Eelam in Sri Lanka.
Who wants to know who the leader of that filthy state is? They both are uneducated slobs.

rajiv Thursday, 19 April 2012 08:04 AM
kashmiris will vote for a separate state if a referendum is held.
Can India afford to lose kashmir?
Mr. manmohan singh, before sending delegations to Sri Lanka to advise Sri Lankans why not concentrate first on kashmir and other separatist movements in Andra pradesh, manipuri and bihar.
Lankaputhra Thursday, 19 April 2012 08:21 AM
Fantastic reply ! Great Mr. Minister
deno Thursday, 19 April 2012 08:40 AM
Good Said!!! Karunanidi is in the last stage of his life so he should earn sin by talking stupid.
TMA Thursday, 19 April 2012 08:42 AM
OK, time for another SL delegate to make an apology
gafa Thursday, 19 April 2012 09:07 AM
Hi Karuna do not look up and spit, it will fall on to your own face.
saman Thursday, 19 April 2012 08:48 AM
They look at Agni V .......... no need referendum
Prasannajit Thursday, 19 April 2012 09:17 AM
Tit for tat ? This is bad international relations. You very well know we cannot go against india. We had to suffer for 30yrs due to that. As TMA says somebody will have to make an apology.
Janaki Thursday, 19 April 2012 09:10 AM
Well said Sir, Let us press for this .Also if jaylalitha and karunadhi is so concerned for the Tamils in SL , let them take all of them from SL and look after them .
sam Thursday, 19 April 2012 09:14 AM
Welldone minister .
P.Wijesekera Thursday, 19 April 2012 09:22 AM
Is this Ranawake's personal view or the policy of the Govt?
Kosegith Thursday, 19 April 2012 09:13 AM
Karunanidi fought for a separate state in India. its true. but he gave it in 1965 when he realised that Tamil people also being treated and there is enough power devolution in India.
R.Dias Thursday, 19 April 2012 09:57 AM
Now showing " KOTI WALIGAYA "
andarawewa Thursday, 19 April 2012 09:36 AM
It is the policy of Sri Lankan.
Fayad Thursday, 19 April 2012 10:07 AM
This a very valid point this come from the president of Sri lanka Because most of his comments are on racist lines do not carry weight..
Damsen Thursday, 19 April 2012 10:15 AM
Mr Wijesekera,It is immaterial as he tells a global truth
gajaya Thursday, 19 April 2012 10:24 AM
Wijeseksra, look at the arrow which's went through your heart instead of analyzing the colour of the Doctor.
Kolomba Kaka Thursday, 19 April 2012 10:25 AM
Mr. M.K. is throwing stones from a glass house!
S de Silva Thursday, 19 April 2012 09:55 AM
At last a SL Minister has said what has to be said very directly. I hope the rest of the GoSAL will continuously repeat this 'loud & clear' to India now that after being back stabbed by India we need not be too gentlemanly any more. – India should be made to learn that “Backstabbing” a good neighbour could be very expensive indeed!! - S de Silva -London
Dinithi Thursday, 19 April 2012 10:19 AM
No need for apologies for comments against the TamilNadu jokers. Such indecent politicans should not be given apologies.
ravi Thursday, 19 April 2012 11:06 AM
Tamil Nadu chief Minister is Ms.Jayalalitha and not Karunanidhi.
Hey Minister, update your knowledge.
Siri Thursday, 19 April 2012 11:28 AM
proud to say that , we have at least one minister who love mother land.
Sellam Thursday, 19 April 2012 11:34 AM
Day before yesterday Jayalalitha attacked the Centre for not giving enough powers to the States.
