Film Director Seeman who was vehemently campaigning to stop Sri Lanka’s war against the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam and failed has now started another campaign demanding to withdraw Sri Lanka’s Deputy High Commissioner from Chennai.

Seeman got arrested by the Tamil Nadu Police during the campaign for making anti-Indian speeches on sedition charges but later got discharged.

He and other LTTE supporters in Chennai demonstrated in Chennai on October 8 demanding the Indian central government to take steps to immediately send back Sri Lanka’s Deputy High Commissioner Vadivel Krishnamoorthy, himself a Tamil of South Indian origin.

Seeman is angry over some statements of the Deputy High Commissioner.

But even without any statements Seeman was angry over Sri Lanka for a long time , and political analysts said the alleged statements were only a lame excuse for him to vent his anger over the island nation.

Seeman calls himself part of the extremely racist Naam Thamilar Movement.

He said in a statement, “The Central and the State Governments should understand our feelings and take steps. Only one Sri Lankan High Commissioner is enough. The Deputy High Commissioner is not needed.”

The Deputy High Commissioners office is in Chennai for the convenience of the big Indian Tamil community who populate the tea plantations in Sri Lanka. They have family and cultural relations with Tamil Nadu.

Analysts in Chennai said the pro-LTTE elements in Chennai is very worried that a man of Tamil Nadu origin is representing Sri Lanka in Chennai.

    Sri Lankan government is doing everything possible to bring Tamils of Indian origin into the bosom of Mother Lanka. Their contribution to Sri Lankan economy and advancement is appreciated by all Sri Lankans. These stupid racists in India ( Seeman and his ilk), do find it hard to believe that any one in Sri Lanka can advance to any high office on their merit. Mr.Seeman, Sri Lanka is not Tamil Nadu. In Sri Lanka men are judged on their merit, if anyone is good enough, can advance to any position in life. Mr.Seeman was Ponna Prabakaran’s mouth piece in Tamil Nadu.
