DMK president M. Karunanidhi on Tuesday urged the Centre to annul the agreement with Sri Lanka for naval cooperation to control piracy and terrorists in the Indian Ocean.

Reacting to the report in The Hindu, ‘Despite strains, India, Sri Lanka deepen naval ties,’ he accused the Centre of showing scant regard for the welfare of Sri Lankan Tamils and the voice of Tamils in Tamil Nadu. “There is an impression among the people of Tamil Nadu that the Indian government always goes the extra mile to promote its ties with Sri Lanka at the cost of Tamils.”

Mr. Karunanidhi said the government should realise that Tamils were also Indian citizens and should respect their sentiments.

He said there seemed to be no end to the attacks on Tamil fishermen by the Sri Lankan army, and the problems of Tamil refugees. “Though India has agreed to help the Sri Lankan Tamils, we suspect that India, keen on retaining its impartiality on the international forum, is not paying due attention to certain issues,” he said.

    You are always against SriLanka Mann, its bad, by this only your BP will go up and your Sugar reading will increase. Keep your mouth shut and retire from your dirty politics.

    No, no that's not correct. One third of the people in Tamil Nadu do not have toilets. They use roadside gullys as toilets.

    You should be happy with India and Sri Lanka naval ties so nothing bad happens to your criminal, poaching Tamil Nadu fishermen and also stop piracy and terrorist activities. You politicians in Tamil Nadu are the worst in the world for not doing anything constructive for Tamils other than arousing emotions of uneducated, poor fellow Tamils in India.
    Stop your illegal fishing in Sri Lankan waters.

    its very easy to govern poor and uneducated people. Tamil leaders had exploit that's throughout the history. In Sri Lanka educated Tamil leaders are killed by other Tamil parties including LTTE or discredited so they never speak up. In Tamil Nadu there are still marriages happen between little girls and dogs to scare away bad demons. So what other prove needed? via DM Android App
