|Tamil-Nadu would become second Jaffna says Sangaree|
Sri Lanka's largest Tamil democratic party leader V. Ananda Sangaree told London based Indian reporters if India does not act fast and quell pro-Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam activities in India's Sourthern state of Tamil Nadu it would become a second Jaffna soon.
Tamil United Liberation Front (TULF) leader, Sangaree warned with leaders like Vaiko of the Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, P. Nedumaran of the Tamil National Movement and Thiru Mavalan of the Dalit Panther Party the South Indian state could become a second Jaffna easily.
Jaffna of Sri Lanka is ravaged by an armed insurgency of separatism by the LTTE, and the Tamil leader who spoke to the reporters at Chor Bizarre Restaurant in the Mayfair area of Central London was of the opinion similar conditions might arise there if the situation goes unchecked.
While not accusing Chief Minister Karunanidhi directly, he said the conduct of Karunanidhi has given the impression that he is "pro-LTTE". Sangaree said he had refused to welcome the Indian Peace Keeping (IPKF) soldiers who had to fight the LTTE in Sri Lanka. IPKF soldiers had been subjected to the most atrocious torture methods by the LTTE, Sangaree said.
Vaiko, Nedumaran and Thiru Mavalan are politicians who are openly supporting the LTTE, despite the group's proscription in India. He said they support Prabhakaran "for various considerations."
"It is myth to think Prabhakaran wants a solution since if he establishes a separate state no country in the world would support it. If such a state comes into existence Prabhakaran knows India would come and get his head, for the Rajiv Gandhi assassination. So, he would prefer to go like this until his death," he further said, clarifying that no solution is possible with the LTTE leadership.
The support presently extended by Tamil Nadu and its Leaders to solve the crisis situation is counter productive and will not in any way lead to finding a reasonable solution, he said. "Hence I make a strong plea that all concerned parties in Tamil Nadu should forget their differences and work united towards finding a reasonable solution within a United Sri Lanka.
