Prabhakaran’s mother spurns visa offer

[Express Buzz, Tuesday, 11 May 2010 06:49 No Comment]

Parvathi Ammal, mother of slain LTTE chief V Prabhakaran, has rejected the conditions that the Centre has attached to her visit to Tamil Nadu, Home Ministry sources said on Monday.

The Centre said it would permit Parvathi’s stay in Tamil Nadu for six months so that she can get treatment but barred her from making any contact with political parties or those who have ties with outfits that are banned in India. The Centre had categorically said that Parvathi’s visit should be confined to getting treatment and she should stay only in the hospital and nowhere else and that she can contact only those relatives whose names are already specified.

Chief Minister M Karunanidhi informed this to the State Assembly on Monday in a suo motu statement. He recalled that he had taken up the issue with Centre during his visit to New Delhi on May 3 and 4, following which the central government had written to the Indian Embassy in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia on May 7, with a copy to the Tamil Nadu government about the permission given to Parvathi, Karunanidhi said.

Sources said the 80-year-old Parvathi is understood to have conveyed to the consulate that she doesn’t want to come to India and treated like a prisoner, especially when she does not harbour any ill will.
