PRO-LTTE VCK PARTY WORKERS WALK INSIDE CONGRESS PARTY HEADQUARTERS AND ASSAULT CONGRESS WORKERS
(By Walter Jayawardhana)
Pro-LTTE elements in Tamil Nadu have started practicing violence in support of the banned terrorist group in India and had attacked ruling congress Party workers inside Sathyamurthi Bhavan, their party headquarters in Chennai, Congress Party leaders charged.
Central Ministers E.V.K.S. Elongovan and G.K. Vasan said the Congress Party ally , Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) party thugs entered the Congress Party headquarters in Tamil Nadu , and attacked Congress party workers in broad daylight over the LTTE issue.
VCK which is an ally of the ruling DMK and Congress coalition government of Tamil Nadu had earlier demanded the recognition of a separate state of Eelam in Sri Lanka and change of the Indian foreign policy on Sri Lanka. In the 235-member Tamil Nadu assembly, the ruling DMK has 95 MLAs, supported by 35 Congress legislators and a sole VCK legislator. Opponents have charged that the VCK is bankrolled by the LTTE.
One of the two Central government Congress Party ministers Elangovan
demanded that the VCK leader Thol Thirumalavan should be arrested For
his unprincipled support of the banned LTTE (Liberation Tigers of Tamil
Eelam) and allowing his party faithfuls to attack Congress workers.
Chennai sources reported that the Congress party workers led by their
legislators burnt the effigies of Thirumalavan and anti-Sri Lanka movie
director Seeman and demanded that they be punished for their separatist
activities against India. Seeman is already in police custody for making
fissiparous demands against the constitution of India telling that Tamil
Nadu should be separated from the rest of India.
