Tamilaga Vazhvurimai Katchi founder T. Velmurugan has hailed the announcement made by Chief Minister Jayalalithaa in the Assembly in regard to the Sri Lankan issue.
In a statement issued here, he stated that the Chief Minister had the courage to tear the mask of the Sri Lankan Government that had been indulging in genocide with impunity.
He further noted that the Chief Minister had acted boldly by calling for a referendum on formation of Tamil Eelam, international probe into the war crimes of Rajapaksa government and economic sanctions. Above all, the Chief Minister had stated that Centre should henceforth stop calling Sri Lanka a friendly nation.
In protecting the riparian rights of Tamil Nadu too, the Chief Minister had acted in a creditable manner, he said.
