Written by: Staff

Chennai, May 7: Now the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) supremo and the Tamil Nadu chief minister M Karunanidhi joined the bandwagon of leaders demanding separate 'Eelam' for Tamils in Sri Lanka.

On Wednesday, May 6 to match his competing rivals Karunanidhi said that he would make all efforts for the creation of a separate homeland for Tamils in the island nations. "We have ensured a fair quantity of relief for Sri Lankan Tamils. As a next step, they should get Eelam and I assumed responsibilities of making all efforts to ensure that 'Eelam' is created", he said in an appeal to DMK workers.

Taking a dramatic U-turn opposition party AIADMK's Jayalalithaa had earlier pitched for a separate homeland for Tamils in Lanka and assured to send Indian army to Sri Lanka to create 'Eelam' if she was voted to power.
