The final outcome, from the peace initiative should ensure permanent ceasefire and lasting peace in Sri Lanka, Mr Karunanidhi said, adding this was his wish. In view of the ambiguities involved in the issue, conflicting views were echoed on the Sri Lankan Tamils issue, the DMK leader said referring to PMK Leader S Ramadoss' demand that the Indian , Government should ask Sri Lanka to declare ceasefire. Referring to the PMK Leader's remarks that LTTE alone could make possible Tamil Eelam and the Tigers should not be looked as terrorists, Mr Karunanidhi said Dr Ramadoss's remarks comes a week after the party distanced itself from the LTTE.
He said only last week, PMK President G K Mani said the party never supported the LTTE and had no connection, whatsoever, with the LTTE.
He said each political party in the State had different stand on LTTE at different points of time, but the DMK had taken a consistent stand on the outfit. A couple of years ago, he had made it clear on the Floor of the Assembly that the DMK had two stands on the LTTE, ''pre Rajiv assassination and post assassination era'', Mr Karunanidhi said.
