In her continuing campaign to expel Sri Lankan Air Force personnel from India, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa has attacked both the Indian government for being meek and DMK president M Karunanidhi's duplicity on the issue.
In a statement made on Friday she had said of Delhi:
"It is regrettable that India, instead of leaping like a tiger is cowering like a mouse before the Sri Lankan government."
The CM went on to express her views on Karunanidhi by saying:
“If he is genuinely concerned about the Tamil race, Mr. Karunanidhi, who is backing the Centre to the hilt, should have urged the Union government to return the Air Force personnel to Sri Lanka.
"[However,] no one would be surprised over the conduct of Mr. Karunanidhi, who would otherwise get things done by threatening the Central government on matters concerning himself and his family, for not doing anything for the welfare of Sri Lankan Tamils.”
