Karunanidhi seeks UN solution for Sri Lankan Tamils
DMK president M. Karunanidhi Tuesday requested the prime minister to introduce a resolution in the United Nation (UN) General Assembly and the UN Human Rights Commission (UNHRC) for Sri Lankan Tamils and Sri Lankan refugees.
Karunanidhi wants the UN and the UNHRC to determine a political solution for Sri Lankan Tamils.
In a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Karunanidhi also said that India should take diplomatic initiatives to get the support of other countries for its resolution while reclaiming the Katchatheevu island ceded to Sri Lanka.
He sought that a naval base be set up at Dhanushkodi or Mandapam in Tamil Nadu.
Referring to the Rs.500 crore Indian aid to Sri Lanka for the rehabilitation of Tamils in that island-country, Karunanidhi said a committee should be formed to oversee how the grant is being used.
He urged the prime minister to avoid training Sri Lankan armed forces in India and that India should take appropriate action to protect its fishermen from attacks by the Sri Lankan Navy.
The letter said that India should take a lead role in facilitating the release of Tamils in Sri Lankan jails, protecting overseas Sri Lankan Tamils, protection of Tamil culture and arts, setting up educational institutions, medical facilities and undertaking rehabilitation.

Pretty simple! Get the UN to exterminate him. Then both TN and SL will concentrate on their respective local issues since there is nobody to stirr racial hatread.
This man Karunanidhi and Jayalalitha have nothing else to do other than shedding copious tears for the Tamils in Sri Lanka. If they are so concerned about them why can’t they first take care of Sri Lankan Tamils in TN refugee camps?
Mr Karunanidhi, we all know that Jayalalitha won the elections using the Sri Lankan Tamil problem, I understand that you also want to win the next elections with a sweeping victory like Jayalalitha. In India itself their is enough corruption, ethnic, caste problems. See that you can have a clean India. Please dont bother the Tamils in Sri Lanka, of course the SL government made mistakes but we have to find a solution ourselves, we dont need youre help for a solution.
30 years of war nobody came, now the war is over youre coming with solutions.
I hope Mr.Karunanidhi can read english.
What all I can say is that ‘Mind your own business’. There are millions of issues you have in Tamil Nadu, look at those without worrying about others. Don’t try to use Lanka name to win elections. May be you can if TN people are not educated.
If you need separate land ask from your central government. Don’t even try to look at lanka again.
