Maveeran Prabhakaran mother denied entry in Tamil Nadu.
MDMK leader Vaiko has announced a mass protest fast April 23 to condemn the deportation of slain Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) leader Vellupillai Prabhakaran’s ailing mother V. Parvathi.
In a statement issued here Saturday, Vaiko said: “MDMK will hold a mass protest fast in Chennai April 23 condemning the deportation of Parvathi Ammal by the Indian officials.” On Friday night, a paralysed 79-year-old Parvathi, who arrived here from Kuala Lumpur in a Malaysian Airlines flight, was not allowed to alight and was deported by immigration officials.
LTTE supporters, MDMK General Secretary Vaiko and Tamil Nationalist Movement leader P.Nedumaran who had gone to the Chennai airport to receive Parvathi, were denied entry into the airport.
BJP leader L. K. Advani demanded a statement on why the Centre did not consult the state on the issue and argued that it was “not a good tradition” to deport an elderly lady who had come for treatment.
Tamil leaders following Valluvar foot steps instead of charging one against another, must keep up their tradition in helping a old Tamil lady by giving her medical treatment, whose son gave his life for the independence of Tamil Eelam.
