The Indian Central Government has stressed that there is an LTTE threat not only to Tamil Nadu but also to several other States.
The Government expressed this view yesterday, despite a claim by Tamil Nadu Deputy Police General, Letika Saran that there is no presence of operatives of the banned LTTE in the State. Reports emanating from India said that New Delhi will leave no room for the LTTE to regroup on Indian soil and has upheld that there was certainly a LTTE threat posed on the security of the country. Letika Saran had told reporters in Tiruchi yesterday though there was no LTTE elements in Tamil Nadu the Police will give adequate protection to leaders in the State at the upcoming election.
Meanwhile, the High Court in Chennai has upheld that the controversial politician Vaiko who had challenged the ban imposed on LTTE for 2 years by a special tribunal headed by Justice Vikramjit Sen of the New Delhi High Court is not an aggrieved party to challenge the Tribunal order of the New Delhi High Court to ban the LTTE for 2 years.
Tamil Nadu Chief Justice M.Y Eqbal and Justice T.S Sivagnanam who heard the case of Vaiko has stressed that Vaiko has no right to stand or seek an intervention on behalf of the LTTE.
