Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj yesterday criticised the demand for a separate ‘Tamil Eelam' by some political parties in Tamil Nadu, even though the Tamil National Alliance the main political force of the Tamils in Sri Lanka favoured a genuine political solution within a united state.

Addressing the fifth State conference of the Bharatiya Janata Party she said the TNA leader, R. Sampanthan, whom she met as leader of a parliamentary delegation that went to Sri Lanka recently to study the Tamils' issue, emphasised that he wanted the Tamils to remain within a united Sri Lanka and find a genuine political settlement.

Swaraj took a dig at both the DMK and the AIADMK for having withdrawn their representatives from the parliamentary panel that visited Sri Lanka, asserting that it was not a picnic for the MPs.

She added that the panel insisted on visiting the internally displaced people who were kept in camps.

The panel visited the affected people and interacted with them without any interference from the Sri Lankan officials; she said and added that the people revealed all their problems without any hesitation.
