Pondicherry Nov. 13. The Sara Educational and Charitable Trust has appealed to the Chief Minister, N.Rangasamy to establish a Tamil academy in Pondicherry and also hold a World Tamil conference. The chairperson of the Trust, K.Jeso Banu today met the Chief Minister and presented a memorandum. The academy could help promote development of Tamil. The Tamil Nadu Government had held eight World Tamil conferences and hence the Union Territory Adminsitration should also hold one here, the memorandum said. Steps should be taken to get the Karaikal fishermen now under the custody of the Sri Lankan Navy released without delay. Ms. Jeso Banu gave a copy of the souvenir released at the recently held International Islamic Tamil conference in Sri Lanka to the Chief Minister.
