The LTTE terrorists did not take into account future penalty while implementing its war strategy, Chief Minister and Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam Chairperson M. Karunanidhi has said on Tuesday (Nov 17).
Indian daily 'The Hindu' quoting Minister Karunanidhi's statement stated that the sight was made in the background of a recent meeting given by Sri Lankan opposition leader Mr. Ranil Wickramasinghe to a Tamil journal.
Recalling the LTTE's call to Tamils for boycott of the 2005 presidential elections, Mr Karunanidhi, in a statement, said that SLFP leader Mahinda Rajapaksa had defeated UNP leader Ranil Wickramasinghe by a margin of about 1.81 lakh votes and that seven lakh Tamils in Sri Lanka did not shed their votes. Mr Wickramasinghe had then promised the electors that he would give priority to peace talks with the LTTE in the time of his election, Karunanidhi was quoted as saying.
Former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi was also assassinated by LTTE terrorists for not towing their nationalist ideologies.
