Chennai, Feb 13 (UNI) The Opposition AIADMK today urged the Centre to take action against Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi for his open support to the proscribed LTTE and play a role in finding a political solution to the ethnic Tamils issue in Sri Lanka.
A resolution adopted at the party's General Council, the highest policy making body, said after coming to power in the aftermath of the assassination of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, the AIADMK Government, headed by Ms J Jayalalithaa had taken stern action against the LTTE, responsible for the incident and had played a vital role in banning it.
However, after coming back to power, Mr Karunanidhi, while remaining silent against the LTTE supporters went a step ahead and offered condolence eulogising the death of LTTE political wing leader S P Tamilchelvan.
Stating that this was an act of treason and would pave way for secessionism, the resolution condemned the Centre for remaining silent without initiating any action against him.
Favouring a political solution to end the sufferings of Tamils in the island nation, the resolution wanted India to play a role to find an early solution to the ethnic crisis and restore peace in the trouble-torn nation.
