Chennai, Mar 17 (UNI) Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy today said it was a matter of serious concern that the LTTE has established camps in Kerala.
In a statement here, he said the Union Government's confirmation that LTTE cells have sprouted in Tamil Nadu and Kerala confirmed his warning about the group's activities in both states in the last two years.
He alleged that political parties in Tamil Nadu, like the ruling DMK, Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK), Marumalarchi DMK (MDMK), Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi and Dravidar Kazhagam were demanding the implementation of Sethusamudram Shipping Channel Project (SSCP), primarily to assist the LTTE.
The creation of the shipping channel would help the LTTE to navigate quickly from Jaffna to the Kerala coasts, without having to go around the island of Sri Lanka.
The SSCP should be scrapped forthwith since it posed a major national security risk for the integrity of the nation, he said.
