Founder of Tamizhaga Vazhvurimai Katchi (TVK) T. Velmurugan has appealed to the Centre not to participate in the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) to be held in Sri Lanka

“because the Mahinda Rajapaksa government has annihilated lakhs of Tamils on the island.”

Addressing a press conference here on Friday Mr. Velmurugan said that for the gross human rights violations committed by the Sri Lankan Government it should also be dropped from the Commonwealth.

Stressing these points the party would organise a demonstration at Chepauk on October 15, he said. — Special Correspondent
