Pulling out of UPA has not changed anything for Tamils: Karunanidhi

DMK president M Karunanidhi on Thursday said pulling out of UPA on the Sri Lankan Tamils issue has not changed anything for ‘Eelam Tamils’ though he insisted his party was not bothered about withdrawing support to the coalition.

‘DMK has now come out of Central government as desired by some persons including (chief minister) Jayalalithaa. So what has happened? Has there been an end to problems of Eelam Tamils? Did India bring in amendments to US resolution (at UNHRC)? Or has it adopted a resolution in Parliament with amendments?’ he said in a letter to partymen.

‘The only thing to have happened was DMK quitting Central government. But DMK is least bothered about that,’ he said.

On criticism that his party should have walked out of the UPA alliance in 2009 when the hostilities were at the peak as that could have prevented further killing of Lankan Tamils, he said it was an effort to put blame on his party.

He said those aware of history would not accept something on the basis of guesswork.
