Edappadi Palanisamy said that no one was affected by the Citizenship Amendment Act and urged the Center to grant dual citizenship to Sri Lankan Tamils.
Chief Minister Edappadi Palanisamy interviewed reporters at Salem Airport. He said: –
Question: – The Citizenship Amendment Act Various protests and conflicts are occurring in Tamil Nadu due to their support. What is its position?
Answer: – The Prime Minister and the Home Minister have clearly explained the Citizenship Amendment Act. As far as the Citizenship Amendment Act is concerned, no one living in India has any bearing. They have made it clear that no matter what religion they are in, no one is affected.
As for the Tamil people living in Sri Lanka, the late Prime Minister Jayalalithaa, when she met the Prime Minister shortly after the 2016 assembly elections, called on her to grant dual citizenship to Sri Lankan Tamils. After his death, I also met the Prime Minister and filed a petition demanding the same.
The AIADMK was present when the Citizenship Amendment Act was introduced in Parliament. Speaking on behalf of the members of the Rajya Sabha, they have clearly stated that they should grant dual citizenship to Sri Lankan Tamils who have come to Sri Lanka from Tamil Nadu. But the deliberate deliberation of the DMK. Leader MK Stalin is telling a false message in Tamil Nadu.
He was speaking at a public meeting in Kancheepuram yesterday (yesterday). Something is a bit of an AI. The government has made an allegation that the Sri Lankan Tamils have been betrayed. This is all a lie. DMK In 2009, when Karunanidhi was Chief Minister, Karunanidhi was in the Congress-led Union Cabinet. Karunanidhi fasted to end the war. Speaking at the end of an hour, he delivered a false message that the ceasefire had been stopped in Sri Lanka and no one should be afraid.
When the Tamil people living in Sri Lanka came out of the bunker to rely on this news, the Sri Lankan army took advantage of the occasion and bombed about 1 lakh Tamils. The DMK is the only party that is deliberately planning to benefit the Sri Lankan Tamils. Just. Did you protest against the government of Sri Lanka when the killing of 1 lakh Tamils, or did you protest against the then central government?
They became a part of the rule and power among themselves. They were all silent and did not fight back. The post itself was great. Why did Sri Lankan Tamils not get citizenship when they were in power for 13 years?
We are not in power. But we have continued to urge the central government to grant dual citizenship to Sri Lankan Tamils who have come to Sri Lanka from Tamil Nadu.
The DMK has no place and no qualifications to talk about Sri Lankan Tamils. We have seen footage of Sri Lankan Tamils living in their own countries as refugees. However, MPs Kanimozhi and DR Paloo met with Rajapakse, attended a party he had given, and bought party gifts from the DMK. Just. Such people are the advocates of the Sri Lankan Tamils. It was MK Stalin and his father Karunanidhi and his party who betrayed the Sri Lankan Tamils.
Question: – The Tamil Nadu government has not already demanded dual citizenship. What is the action of the Government of Tamil Nadu?
Answer: – The AIADMK has been able to grant dual citizenship to our brothers and sisters who have come to Sri Lanka from Tamil Nadu. Will continue to insist. We are taking action. Moreover, we continue to provide all Tamil welfare assistance to the Tamil people of Sri Lanka.
There are 107 camps for Sri Lankan Tamils in Tamil Nadu. There are approximately 59,714 Sri Lankan Tamils living in 25 districts. There are also 34,355 people living outside. We are giving all the facilities available to the people of Tamil Nadu. We are giving away 20 kg of rice monthly.
Does MK Stalin have ‘Dil’ for AIADMK to hold elections? Is there a thrane? Is there coconut? He has asked that many times. At present we ask, Is the DMK ready to meet the election, is there a Trani? Is there coconut? The DMK has said that the Election Commission is holding elections. Why are you hindering the election process now?
It is just to meet people. Elections are held in a democratic manner. Then why are you hesitant to hold elections ?. Digg And its allies are ready to meet the people, to hold elections. We will have the biggest victory in local elections.
Thus he said.
