Indian Union home minister P Chidambaram 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 in Chennai on August 12.

The TESO, which comprises supporters of a separate Tamil land in Sri Lanka and was revived by Karunanidhi after three decades.

But 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.

The nearly half-an hour discussion between Chidambaram and Karunanidhi took place at the DMK chief’s residence in Chennai yesterday.

The meeting comes a day after the Centre issued a notification extending the ban on the LTTE.

DMK sources said Karunanidhi conveyed in return his unhappiness with the UPA government’s stand.
