Rajapaksa’s assertion is an insult to injury; Karunanidhi


Describing as “an insult to injury” Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s assertion that his country would not bow to outside pressure and withdraw the Army from the North, the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) president M. Karunanidhi on Sunday said the Tamil Eelam Supporters Organisation (TESO)would soon organise a conference to discuss these issues and take a decision.

Recalling a report released by the US secretary of State Hillary Clinton that the major human rights problems were unlawful killings by security forces and government-allied paramilitary groups, often in predominantly Tamil areas, he said such reports further strengthened his argument in favour of a separate Tamil Eelam.
