DMK president and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi today said Tamils in Sri Lanka were put to "untold sufferings" and urged the Centre to insist on the island nation to settle "once and for all" the problem faced by them in that country.
"Tamils in Sri Lanka are put to untold sufferings...they are unable to return home. They are still kept in camps. Those who were sent back to their homes have not yet been provided sufficient safety as promised," he said at the concluding session of the World Classical Tamil Conference in Coimbatore today.
"No political solution has been found yet for Tamils in Sri Lanka, despite periodic assurances...this is a matter of pain and deep concern to the people who had gathered at the conference," Karunanidhi added. (PTI)
