DMK president M. Karunanidhi on Wednesday asked Tamils across the world not to fall a prey to the campaign of the Sri Lankan government that the Tamil Eelam Supporters Organisation (TESO) conference was against that country and that the participation of the Sri Lankans in the conference would be monitored.
Recalling Sri Lankan Minister Keheliya Rambukwella’s remarks that his government would watch the Sri Lankans who were going to take part in the conference, Mr. Karunanidhi said there was no basis for the allegation that the conference was against Sri Lanka.
“The conference is organised only to ameliorate the living conditions of the Tamils. It is a matter of regret that Sri Lanka has failed to understand it. I request Tamils not to get carried away by the propaganda of the Sri Lankan government,” he added.
