Chennai, 06 August, (Asiantribune.com): Tamil Nadu rabble rouser and supporter of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and leader of the Tamil National Movement P. Nedumaran has stated that he would invade Sri Lanka’s war-torn areas carrying medicine and food in support of the Tamil Tigers.P. Nedumaran’s organization is one of the outfits suspected of being on the payroll of the LTTE in Tamil Nadu who are acting as their agents.P. Nedumaran’s organization is one of the outfits suspected of being on the payroll of the LTTE in Tamil Nadu who are acting as their agents.

Nedumaran threatened the invasion after the Indian Red Cross has refused to carry the material his political organization has collected for the “Tamil people of Sri Lanka”.

Nedumaran’s organization is one of the outfits suspected of being on the payroll of the LTTE in Tamil Nadu who are acting as their agents.

The LTTE is using Tamil Nadu to procure arms, ammunition, fuel and medicine for its continuing insurgency in Sri Lanka.

If Nedumaran is successful, it would be the second time Indians are violating the sovereignty of Sri Lanka after the Indian planes entered Sri Lankan airspace after former Indian Prime Minister ordered to drop food from air which are now christened as “Parippu Bombs” in Sri Lanka. Subsequently, LTTE assassinated their former sponsor, Rajiv Gandhi.

Nedumaran said addressing his organization ,the Sri Lanka Tamil Supporters Conference ''though we have collected food items and medicines worth Rs one crore( ten million) and handed them over to the Indian Red Cross, the Centre has not permitted the Red Cross to take the items to the island nation.''

Nedumaran further stated the Indian Red Cross had informed him that they were unable to carry the alleged war aid to Sri Lanka as the Indian Central government in New Delhi would not allow it.

Nedumaran has attacked the UPA government in New Delhi and the DMK government in Chennai for not helping the “Tamils” in Sri Lanka. He has threatened to invade the sovereign territory of the island republic by sailing from Rameswaram coast, September 12, to distribute food and medicine in the war torn areas in the North of Sri Lanka.

Political observers said that Nedumaran is acting on behalf of the LTTE to raise a “humanitarian” cry against the Sri Lanka government and catch headlines for propaganda.

To whip up public support for his political cause and rouse the Tamil public opinion against the Karunanidhi government in Chennai two propaganda rallies, one from Tiruchirapalli to Nagapattinam and another from Madurai to Rameswaram, are being organized, from September 7, his organization has said.

Strongly worded resolutions have been adopted at the conference condemning the New Delhi government for not permitting the Indian Red Cross Society to take the relief items to the island nation and the Tamil Nadu government's failure to help the affected Sri Lankan Tamils.
