DMK President M Karunanidhi demanded that India not participate in the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meet in Colombo in November this year and warned of protests if its demand was not accepted by the Centre.

 

He said Prime Minister Manmohan Singh should clearly convey to Sri Lankan External Affairs Minister G L Peiris during his scheduled visit tomorrow that India would not participate in the meeting.

 

On the frequent attacks on Indian fishermen, he observed that though the Centre had repeatedly been writing to the island nation on the issue it seems those requests had not yielded any results.

 

External Affairs Minister G L Peiris will visit India tomorrow to deliver the invitation for the Indian premier to participate at CHOGM.

 

Discussions are also to be held on the fishermen’s issues and also regarding the Northern Provincial Council election.

 

However the JHU says that the role of the Tamilnadu state government was an indication of invasion of Sri Lanka’s sovereignty.

 

Media Spokesperson Nishantha Sri Warnasinghe expressed these views.
