CHENNAI: While expressing solidarity with the Tamil population of Sri Lanka, the Tamil Nadu Congress Committee president, K.V. Thangkabalu, said the LTTE was a terrorist organisation banned in India and other countries in the world and was responsible for the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi.

Mr. Thangkabalu said the party understood that the human chain demonstration on Tuesday was being organised to ensure that humanitarian and other aid, especially shelter, food and medicines, were made available to the refugees and others affected by the civil strife. “The Congress fully supports the above objectives and wishes success to the human chain demonstration in support of the above objectives.”
