[TamilNet, Thursday, 9 April 2009 14:19 No Comment]

Political Head of the LTTE, B. Nadesan rubbished reports in a section of the English media in India that there was a Tamil Tiger threat to top politicians including Congress chief Sonia Gandhi. According to reliable media sources in India, B Nadesan had categorically denied Thursday that there was an LTTE threat to Indian leaders.

In a letter to CNN-IBN, quoted on their website, political head of the LTTE, Nadesan, wrote, “All these are part of the malicious propaganda intended to divert the plight of the sufferings of the Tamil civilians and their quest for self determination. Forces that are determined to dent the affinity between Eelam Tamils and the great people of India continuously labour to break that bond by in putting out these kind of baseless fictions. There is absolutely no threat whatsoever from us to neither Ms. Sonia Gandhi nor her children”.

A section of the English media in India had carried reports of intelligence services in the nation becoming increasingly concerned "about the prospect of an election-time attack by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam on top political leaders, including Congress party chairperson Sonia Gandhi."
