Another Tamil Nadu party pulls out of Sri Lankan visit

Tamil Nadu's DMK party announced its decision to pull out of an all-party Indian delegation set to visit to Sri Lanka this week, on Sunday.

Speaking to reporters, the DMK leader, Karunanidhi said,

“DMK never planned [to be part of the delegation]. There are past experiences to show that there is no use of such visits. Therefore, nobody from DMK is undertaking the visit.”


Tamil Nadu's Chief Minister, Jayalalithaa, of the AIADMK party, had announced her party's decision to withdraw their representative from the delegation earlier this week.

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
