DMK chief M Karunanidhi on Wednesday sounded skeptical about holding of Northern provincial elections in Sri Lanka next year, saying there was some “hidden meaning” in the announcement on the polls by President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

“There seems to be some hidden meaning in Mr. Rajapaksa’s comments that electoral rolls have to be revised,” he told reporters in Chennai when asked about the Sri Lankan President’s remarks that they wanted to hold the election to the provincial council in September 2013.

Mr. Rajapaksa, in an interview to a leading Indian national daily, is reported to have said many issues had to be resolved ahead of holding the polls, the primary one being revision of electoral rolls since they were more than 30 years old.

Mr. Karunanidhi said an imprisoned LTTE cadre Ganesh Nimalaruban was allegedly murdered by prison and police officers for revolting and his parents were denied permission even to cremate his body in their native place Vavuniya.

Besides another person was said to be unconscious in hospital.

Only to find a solution to these problems, the conference of Tamil Elam Supporters Organisation was being organised, he said referring to the proposed meet of the forum revived by him recently to take up the cause of Sri Lankan Tamils. (PTI)

    Why this mad man worried about us. There are many things to resolve in Thamilnadu.

    You are right given MR's reputation.

    Trehan Munasinghe Thursday, 12 July 2012 06:49 AM

    Why don't you worry about the Tamils of India.... 1st and try and win your election or die.... trying !! Sri Lankan Tamils will sort their issues as Sri Lankan's.... citizens of this country...

    Mr. karunanidhi should look into problems in Tamil Nadu & not in srilanka,if he is so sympathetic he should grant all refugees citizen ship in his state at least. this is for political gain, first fight jayalalitha then talk of Srilanka.

    Only SL Tamils' problem.

    sri lanka is not a state of india???

    Don't you think that you are well past your retiring age, M.K.? The Sri- Lankan- tamil-problem card won't win you any votes either, as Jaya owns the sole rights. Being senile, you should seriously consider doing some meritorious deeds for your next birth.

    Tanils in India have their own land and police power. Moreover, they can practice their tradition and culture freely.

    Realist Friday, 13 July 2012 10:26 AM

    yeah!! because their homeland is there. not here

    raj Thursday, 12 July 2012 04:19 AM

    MK we Sri Lankans doubt your concerns about us Tamils, as you have hidden agendas, winning votes is one of them.

    sue Thursday, 12 July 2012 04:23 AM

    I'm no fan of Karunanidhi, but I guess by now everyone doubts what these VIP's say.

    Fazli Thursday, 12 July 2012 04:24 AM

    Be my Guest ! Come over to Sri Lanka & watch the polls !

    Nodrog Thursday, 12 July 2012 04:37 AM

    It's not 'everyones' problem what goes on here.
