The DMK Friday urged the the central government, of which it is a key constituent, to save remaining Tamils in Sri Lanka and not fall into the "diabolical net" laid out by Sri Lanka and its president, Mahinda Rajapaksa.

In his letter to the party cadres, a copy of which was released to the media, DMK president M. Karunanidhi said: "The Sri Lankan government is trying to forge friendship with China and Pakistan, which have differences with India. The Sri Lankan government is not ready to appreciate the help rendered by India to it."

Stating that Rajapaksa had thanked Pakistan and China for helping his country in its war againt the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), and commenting on the permission given to Chinese companies to fish in Sri Lankan waters, Karunanidhi said: "At least now India should wake up and not fall in the diabolical net laid out by Sri Lanka and its president Rajapaksa."

Karunanidhi said Sri Lanka, by forging a strong relationship with China and Pakistan, was acting in a threatening manner against India.
Karunanidhi urged the Indian government to save the Tamils still in the island nation and secure them their livelihood and democratic rights. (IANS)

    Sri Lanka has developed close relations with China and Pakistan because they are trustworthy, and friendly towards us unlike India. None of India's neighbors: Bangladesh, China, Nepal, Pakistan consider India as trusworthy or friend. In fact they consider India as an enemy and BACKSTABBER. India has a real problem!

    Lobo Saturday, 22 September 2012 04:40 AM

    Even in India this guy is a joke so we don't need to bother about him.

    Aadi Saturday, 22 September 2012 05:48 AM

    the indian govt. is based in delhi and knows that these tamil jokers havnt contributed much to the nation except spoiling relations with our prestigious neighbour...sri lanka and india share a common culture, history and a similar origin of language...we've been brothers for too long...and i wish to apologise to the lankans for the rant of hatred by our tamils...all indians except tamils believe that ltte was a terrorist organistaion and support the lankan govt. decision to wipe them out

    Chithra Saturday, 22 September 2012 07:17 AM

    Is it the reason India developed LTTE, trained them and
    given weapons to fight a neighbour. Ugly politics of INDIA
    created all the distruction in Sri Lanka. When LTTE changed against India, the learned lesson. Still not enough I think.

    In fact, China and Pakistan are very good friends. Never
    went against us. India is always a very bad neighbour
    who always has ulterior motives.

    raviraj Saturday, 22 September 2012 07:38 AM

    Hey Aadi TN is the among the 3 main contributors to the nations wealth and Sl is no prestigious neighbour

    raviraj Saturday, 22 September 2012 07:39 AM

    and none of these countries have the economic or human development that India has. Birds of a feather flock together

    Nodrog Sunday, 23 September 2012 04:26 AM

    raviraj, time to update your stats on China's economic status.

    Tony Montana Friday, 21 September 2012 03:52 PM

    You means send all the Tamils to Tamil nadu.

    sach Saturday, 22 September 2012 09:31 AM

    Big means powerful. Sing'pr, UAE were never strong countries, but they are allies to a strong country. Good diplomatic relationshp with Ind is a MUST for SL.

    dass Friday, 21 September 2012 04:05 PM

    don't worry, thecentral government knows very well that India is too big for Sri Lanka 'net'

    sach Saturday, 22 September 2012 09:32 AM

    who are singlese?

    sach Saturday, 22 September 2012 09:33 AM

    human development? :)

    Here we go again ! Don't you think that you are too old and senile K'nidhi ? Why don't you engage in some meritorious deeds and make a wish to become the P.M. in your next incarnation !

    Lobo Sunday, 23 September 2012 06:42 AM

    No such race as Singlese. Educate yourself before commenting.

    Palitha Friday, 21 September 2012 04:56 PM

    Karunanidhi, have you ever attende any kind of school for education or any knowledge about social Intelegence ?

    Sammy Friday, 21 September 2012 05:03 PM

    Don't play Tamil Nadu politics with Sri Lankan tamils as the ball.

    Ajith Friday, 21 September 2012 05:50 PM

    Seems Crying........Poor old man......

    bernardwijeyasingha Friday, 21 September 2012 08:04 PM

    Karunanidhi is an idiot and thinks everyone else thinks like him. India too has a thriving economic relationship with China and is making overtures towards Pakistan for peace Karunanidhi not only wants to dictate India's policies but also that of Sri Lanka. What a mutt.

    Rakitha Friday, 21 September 2012 08:08 PM

    Big does not matter to be smart and powerfull, Eg: Singapore,Belgium,UAE are same size ro even smaller than SL but are strong with thier larger closer nations like Chine,KSA ... So i think SL is doing teh correct thing,,, we no need to fear India, todays world politics are not as we had in 1980's.... So Dass i think you are out dated!!!

    mudaliar Friday, 21 September 2012 09:28 PM

    Lanka belongs to EELAM tamils and their close cousins austro veddos and not singlese. KALINGA or ORRISA or ODDISA is origin place of Singlese. Hence all the 10 million singlese to be ready to move to jungles of orrisa and better leave this beautiful island to its native people. Singlese are no way connected to this southern part of subcontinent you are banished people from orrisa.

    Rasa Friday, 21 September 2012 09:42 PM

    Karunanithy remember your FAST UNTO DEATH. Do not fool the tamil Nadu people and they know your are a stupid clown.

    kumara soysa Friday, 21 September 2012 09:44 PM

    The most serious "net" was laid by the Indians in the era 1979 to 1983. If not for their diabolical and seedy manipulations via RAW, there would have been no "Ethnic War", no diaspora, no problems with the U.N., Norway, the U.K., we will have no reason to coddle-up to the Chinese, Pakistanis or any other nation; we would have lived our usual laid-back life. And this man says to the Indian government "not to fall into the net laid by the Sri Lankan government!!

    Mr. Karunanidhi, I hope sir, sooner than later you will begin to reap the harvest.

    mudaliar Friday, 21 September 2012 10:05 PM

    No. send all singlese to orrisa forest. That is their native origin.

    sanath Friday, 21 September 2012 10:08 PM

    U.S. is behind all this. U.S. create all the trobles to muslims and srilankans too

    dimiki Friday, 21 September 2012 11:58 PM

    No Tony, Send all Singalese to Orisa

    idiot Saturday, 22 September 2012 12:23 AM

    It is a pity only you and I openly say things like this against other countries or its leaders. Sri Lankan leaders could never say such things to leaders of other countries. It is Sri Lanka, being told how to run its country by other country leaders. Indoa. USA, UK, Europe etc. Ever wondered why?

    Nodrog Saturday, 22 September 2012 12:25 AM

    Unlike India, China and Pakistan offered their unconditional support to us during the war whereas India's meager help came with many strings attached. India's bullying and lack of support pushed us to forge friendships with China and Pakistan and its their own fault if they now feel threatened.

    moda-liar, if you are referring to the 'Sinhalese' then be advised that they, along with the Tamils, Muslims, Burghers, Moors etc; have our own country now. Its called Sri Lanka.

    Potta Sunil Saturday, 22 September 2012 01:20 AM

    MK has a point which SL should not fail to note!

    MH Saturday, 22 September 2012 01:31 AM

    Hey buddy Karu because there was no net before tamil tigers brought boat loads of Armoury to SL from your so called Tamil Nadu and tamil tigers terrorised innocent sri lankan lives for 30 years. When the net was laid by President Rajapakse what happened to the tamil tigers they perished and even you could not come to SL becuase you would have been inside that net of Rajapakse too.Mind your own business.
