Mr. Vaiko said he had represented to the Prime Minister and the Home Minister that the LTTE chief negotiator, Anton Balasingham, be permitted on humanitarian considerations, to visit India for medical consultation. He was yet to get their response.
The AIADMK's ``disdain'' for democratic values was once again exposed by the transfer of officials of the Chennai Corporation on the eve of the Saidapet Assembly byelection, Mr. Vaiko said. He, however, had full confidence in the Election Commission's ``unbiased and neutral stance'' and would take up the matter with it.
Asked about the MDMK strategy for the byelections , he said the district secretaries, meeting in Erode on April 27, would discuss the matter.
Our Pondicherry Staff Reporter reports:
In Pondicherry, the Tamil Nationalist Movement leader, P. Nedumaran, today said the DMK should have voted against the resolution seeking extradition of Mr. Prabakaran.
Addressing newsmen in Pondicherry, he also wondered whether it was necessary to adopt the resolutions in the Pondicherry and Tamil Nadu Assemblies for the arrest and extradition of Mr. Prabakaran when a peace process was on in Sri Lanka. The resolutions were adopted out of political motives and would only cause a setback to the efforts at restoration of normality on the island. Mr. Nedumaran appealed to the Centre to extend cooperation for the peace talks.
