Drop Tamil Eelam agenda - Chidambaram tells Karunanidhi


Union Home Minister in India P. Chidambaram on Sunday reportedly conveyed to DMK chief M. Karunanidhi the central government's displeasure over a move by the ally to pass a resolution to demand Tamil Eelam at a meeting of the Tamil Eelam Supporters Organisation (TESO) in Chennai on August 12, Times of India (TOI) reported.

Such a meeting, to be organised by a key ally of the UPA government, could prove a huge embarrassment for India, whose stated international policy is for cordial ties with Sri Lanka, it said.

TOI quoting DMK sources said that the Union Minister conveyed the message that the UPA government considered it ill-advisable for the DMK leader to revive the Eelam call in the state.
