A resolution condemning the statement made by former National Cricket Player Muttiah Muralitharan was unanimously passed at the monthly meeting of the Chavakachcheri Urban Council today.
The resolution which was proposed by Councillor P. Sritharan and seconded by Councillor Kishore, was adopted with all members unanimously voting for it.
“Perhaps, Muralitharan was playing cricket overseas when the Tamil people in the North were suffering and scores of young men and women disappeared. He has hurt the feelings of the Tamil people, grieving the loss of their loved ones, by undermining their struggles.”
“Hereafter, we will protest if he held cricket training camps in the North and the East,” he said.
