Our party will consider it as a betrayal of Tamils if the Centre does not support the US resolution on Sri Lanka, DMK chief Karunanidhi told reporters late on Wednesday evening.
He told reporters that his party executive would take the matter very seriously if the centre failed to support the US backed resolution at the Geneva meet.
“I can not decide on withdrawing support to the centre on this. We would discuss and decide in our executive,” Karunanidhi said when asked about his views on the statement of external affairs minister SM Krishna in Parliament. The DMK’s 18 members in Lok Sabha are crucial for the survival of the UPA government.
Interestingly, K Veeramani, Dravidar Kazhagam leader told reporters that the attitude of the Congress towards the Lankan Tamil issue was against the alliance dharma.
“This is the right opportunity for the DMK to redeem itself from the bad name contracted by the party,” Veeramani had said in a statement.
Leading political observers are unanimous in their view that Congress has become untouchable in Tamil Nadu.
