More Congress leaders in Tamil Nadu are opposing Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s participation in the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting scheduled to be held in Sri Lanka.

It was Union Shipping Minister G.K. Vasan who first raised the issue and subsequently met the Prime Minister and made a strong case for shifting the venue of CHOGM out of Sri Lanka.

Now, former TNCC president K.V. Thangkabalu has asked for a State Assembly resolution urging the Prime Minister to keep away from the conference.

Former Congress MP Peter Alphonse said India should take into consideration the sentiments of the seven crore Tamil population before deciding on participating in the CHOGM meet.

However, Union Minister of State for Commerce and Industry E.M. Sudharsana Natchiappan said India’s participation was important to instil confidence in the mind of the Tamil community in Sri Lanka.
