Reiterating that Tamil Eelam alone could find a permanent solution to the problems of the Sri Lankan Tamils, Viduthalai Chiruthaikal Katchi (VCK) on Sunday demanded a referendum among them to ascertain the need for the creation of a nation.

At a public meeting and a rally organised to commemorate the birth anniversary of B.R. Ambedkar, the VCK adopted a resolution that sought appointment of a credible, independent international inquiry into the wartime excesses of the Mahinda Rajapaksa administration against the Tamils.

Another resolution urged the State government to put an end to the hate campaign of some political leaders, which, the VCK said, led to violence against Dalits in the State.

Addressing the meeting, VCK leader Thol Thirumavalavan wanted the State government to enact a law to prevent honour killings, which had become a weapon in the hands of those who were against inter-caste marriages.

An award ceremony also marked the occasion. The Ambedkar Sudar award was given to former IAS officer P.S. Krishnan, the Periyar Oli award to Kolathur Mani, Ayothidasar Aadavan award to Communist leader T.S. Gnaniah and the Kamarajar Award to A. S. Ponnammal, former MLA. (The Hindu)

    YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT AND KEEP IT UP THE PRESSURE.

    Tamils lives Peacefully, Sharing Powers Equally, Safely and they rules themselves. So Why does Tamil People inTamilnaadu want to separate from India?

    raviraj Monday, 15 April 2013 06:51 AM

    because Tamils in India are quire content staying with mother India

    raviraj Monday, 15 April 2013 06:50 AM

    Inidan Tamils do not face the kind of problems that Tamils in Sl face, for example the Indian govt. does not abduct/kill/disappear/burn the press etc. just because one is a tamil

    VCK Let's built a Tamil Elam in Tamil Nadu. What you say ?

    Ajantha Monday, 15 April 2013 05:02 AM

    I don't get you VCK, You say that only Tamil Eelam could solve problems of Sri Lankan Tamils. Does India have a Tamil Eelam? If not, your statement implies that Indian Tamils have problems too. If so why don't you solve your own problems in India first? Ask for a referendum in India for a Tamil Elam.

    SL Monday, 15 April 2013 03:50 AM

    VCK, Do you want fries with that?

    Abdul Monday, 15 April 2013 03:33 AM

    why are they trying to get their eelam in a country with a small population of tamils compared to tamil nadu ?
