Chennai, Apr 10 (ANI): Tamil leader V. Gopalswamy, popularly known as Vaiko, warned of serious consequences as Sri Lanka military sounded last warning to Tamil Tiger rebels.

"When the government itself is giving weapons to kill our people then I said if they use the weapons to kill the Tamil people, to kill the Liberation movement, the LTTE, the repercussions will be disastrous," said Vaiko.

Vaiko said the MDMK has adopted a resolution saying that a separate state for Sri Lanka's minority Tamils was the only solution to the ethnic conflict.

"Today, we have again adopted a resolution reiterating our stand again emphasising the fact that the separate Tamil Eelam is the only solution. We have decided to raise our voice to see Tamil Eelam is created in the island," Vaiko said.

LTTE supporters in India say the government gives weapons to Sri Lanka, butew Delhi says it only provides non-lethal equipment.

Sri Lanka's military on Wednesday broadcast a final surrender offer to Tamil Tiger rebels surrounded in a tiny strip of coast, urging them drop their guns and free tens of thousands of civilians or be destroyed.

After a punishing three-day battle in which the military said it killed more than 500 Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) rebels, the Sri Lankan army sealed the remnants of the separatist group off in a no-fire zone where they are mixed among civilians. (ANI)
