Vaiko says malicious campaign made deliberately to malign the LTTE.
On 24 September 2010 (Friday) the proceedings commenced at 3.30 p.m., in Court Room 2 of Delhi High Court. The Hon’ble Judge Vikramjit Sen, Senior Judge permitted MDMK General Secretary Vaiko to place his arguments to implead him in the proceedings about the ban on LTTE.
The central government of India extended the ban on LTTE for another two years in May 2010. The Indian government says even though the LTTE is eliminated in Sri Lanka, the remnant LTTE cadres and leaders are regrouping in Tamil Nadu, a state that favors a separate homeland for the Tamils in Sri Lanka.
The Home Ministry of India has noted that there is a possibility of LTTE’s remnant cadres using India and especially, Tamil Nadu as a rear base for their regrouping activities.
Vaiko told “My Lord, I am really happy for this opportunity to clarify this vital point. The LTTE never wanted to annex even an inch of land of Tamil Nadu with their Tamil Eelam,” Vaiko replied.
“Could the Union Government of India prove that the LTTE did mention in any of their periodicals or manifesto or publications? They could not. This is beyond any stretch of imagination of Eelam Tamils. This is a vicious, malicious campaign made deliberately by the Indian Government to malign the LTTE,” Vaiko told the Tribunal.
The special tribunal, headed by a High Court Justice to examine the legality of extension of ban on LTTE, declined a plea made by Vaiko, to hear him before passing any order.
Tamils only must unite for giving a new life to our bereaved Tamil Eelam brethren s.
