DMK leaders have appealed to the people to attend the Tamil Eelam Supporters’ Organisation (TESO) conference to be held here on August 12.

DMK Rajya Sabha member Kanimozhi said on Friday that it was the duty of every Tamil to attend the conference as party president M. Karunanidhi had convened it with the objective of securing peace for the Sri Lankan Tamils. In a statement here, she said the conference would take steps to heal the wounds of the Sri Lankan Tamils, who suffered in the hands of the Sri Lankan majoritarianism and discrimination.

DMK treasurer M.K. Stalin called upon the members of the youth wing to participate in the conference in large numbers, wearing the uniform of the youth wing.
