A massive demonstration was staged in Tamil Nadu (TN) today against moves by the Sri Lankan government to dilute the 13th Amendment to the constitution.
The demonstration which was staged in several parts of Tamil Nadu including Chennai, Madurai and Nagapathnam, was organized by the Tamil Eelam Supporters’ Organisation (TESO).
DMK leader M. Karunanidhi and senior party member M.K Stalin were among those who took part in the demonstration.
