He said that instead of using Sri Lanka to gain votes at an election, Tamil Nadu politicians must come forward and give assistance to the Tamils in Sri Lanka.
“Don’t use us for your politics,” he said.
Radhakrishnan also said that politicians in Tamil Nadu are not even clear about the actual issues faced by the Tamils in Sri Lanka.
“There are Tamils in the North and East and the estates in Sri Lanka but the Tamil Nadu politicians tend to group everyone together and term them as Eelam Tamils not knowing what the real issues are,” he said.
He says the Tamil Nadu politicians always claim Tamils in Sri Lanka are suffering and those claims are mostly made close to an election in Tamil Nadu. (Colombo Gazette)
