AIADMK general secretary Jayalalithaa on Thursday alleged that by asking Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to send another delegation to Sri Lanka to assess the real situation, Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi had admitted that the delegation he had sent earlier was counterfeit and their assessment was untrue.
Recalling the Chief Minister’s letter to the Prime Minister crying out for immediate and urgent rehabilitation of the Internally Displaced Tamil people of Sri Lanka, she said it was an open admission that the Tamil people of Sri Lanka were still in a state of acute distress.
In a statement here, Ms Jayalalithaa said that both the Chief Minister and his hand-picked delegation, including his daughter, had lied to the people of Tamil Nadu and to the Tamils all over the world that the Tamil people of Sri Lanka were doing just fine.
Ms. Jayalalithaa said “with some more months to go for the State Legislative Assembly elections and with defeat looming large, Mr. Karunanidhi is sure to introduce several desperate twists and turns in his script.”
“But he should realise one truth. The people have seen through him. The writing on the wall is clear,” she said.
