TAMIL NADU

Not convincing

Sir, — The argument of the Union Minister, M. Kannappan, that he was supporting the LTTE as it was fighting for a just cause is not convincing. The LTTE means V. Prabakaran and nothing else. The courts have declared Prabakaran an offender in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case.

Sir, __ Mr. Kannapan's plea, "I have done nothing wrong. We have never extended any help to the LTTE" , is in order to escape from the law. He has not denied his sympathy for the banned organisation.

Sir, — POTA must be used against the real culprits. It should not be used for political vendetta.

Sir, — The Tamil Nadu Government's threat to slap a POTA case against Mr. Kannappan can lead to constitutional problems.
