RAMDOSS SAY THAT SRI LLANKAS CONSUL GENERAL OFFICE IN CHENNAI SHOULD BE CLOSED DOWN.
By Walter Jayawardhana
For re-publishing a collection of items that appeared in the Tamil
Nadu media a Tamil Nadu based human rights organization
called Manitham wants Indias federal government in New Delhi to
close down the Consul General office of Sri Lanka immediately.
The Executive Director of the Manitham (Man) Agni Subramaniam
in an interview with the popular Tamil weekly magazine Kumudam said,
the book issued by the Consul Generals office consisting of media
reports from Tamil Nadu , has created a stir among the supporters
of Tamil Eelam in Tamil Nadu.
Bringing it to the notice of Pattali Makkalai Katchi leader Dr. Ram
Doss, who is an extremist leader of the Tamils, Agni, literally meaning
Fire, told the magazine that the media reports carried in the book made
the impression that Tamil people in Tamil Nadu are opposed to the Liberation
Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).
The book that has perturbed a Human Rights organization , although
the contents and title of the book, Tamil Tigers in the Eyes of
Tamil Nadu have nothing to do with human rights and are a collection
of objective news reports published in Tamil Nadu itself.
Dr. Ram Doss later addressing a meeting accused the Sri Lanka government
by issuing the book the Sri Lanka government has injected venom into
Tamil Nadu politics.
Ramdoss said the book might be worth about Rupees one thousand and
it had re-published only Tamil Nadu media reports favorable to Sri Lanka.
He argued Sri lanka government would have published bews reports supportive
of both Sri Lanka and the LTTE. Ram Doss also said, Further more,
we have reliable information that the Consulate has collected the cell
phone numbers, residential addresses, official addresses etc of persons
such as film directors Thangagpachan, Seeman, Pugalaenthy, Thirumavalavan
(Leader of Viduthalai Siruthaikal) and others who are supporters of
Ramdoss said therefore the Central government should close down the
Sri Lanka Consul Generals office in Chennai.
