News: On Sri Lankan issues, late CM pursued a strong line Her Assembly sought international probe into the alleged war crimes by the island nation
Posted Date: 09/12/2016 (Friday)
Former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, who received tributes from a wide spectrum of political leaders of Sri Lanka, had always pursued a strong line on matters concerning the neighbouring country, though she did oscillate on the issue of Eelam war and Tamil refugees. In the initial years, after the Black July of 1983 when anti-Tamil riots broke out across Sri Lanka, the AIADMK leader had supported the cause of Tamil extremists, especially the LTTE. It was the period when the Central government was also supportive of the rebels. In the run-up to the dismissal of the DMK ministry in January 1991, she had turned her ire against the LTTE and urged the Centre to remove the DMK regime on the ground that the LTTE was carrying out “illegal and clandestine activities” with the “connivance and encouragement” of the State government.
