Aug 06, Colombo: Sri Lanka Minister of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Rajitha Senaratne says that the government does not need to protest the Tamil Eelam Solidarity Organization (TESO) conference to be held in Tamil Nadu under the aegis by DMK leader Muthuvel Karunanidhi.
The Minister expressed these views in response to a statement by the government coalition Sinhala Buddhist party Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) which says Sri Lanka government needs to protest the conference.
JHU spokesman Nishantha Sri Warnasinghe has said that the Tamil Nadu politicians are trying to revive the struggle to truncate Sri Lanka to establish a separate state of Eelam and the Sri Lankan government that crushed the armed struggle for Eelam appears to be turning a blind eye to this ominous threat.
It is confirmed that the conference will be held in Chennai on August 12.
It has already been confirmed that Democratic People's Party leader Mano Ganesan, New Left Front leader Dr. Wickramabahu Karunaratne and United Socialist party leader Siritunga Jayasuriya will attend this conference while major Tamil constituency Tamil National Alliance has not still taken a final decision on their participation.
