CPI(M) MLA denies reports of LTTE links

CPI(M) MLA K Mahendran described reports in a section of media in this regard as `not true` and said he had no links with the now decimated LTTE.



Chennai: Denying reports of his alleged links to the outlawed LTTE,a CPI(M) MLA on Sunday said he did not `leak` details of a proposed ceasefire plan between the Sri Lankan
government and the outfit to MDMK chief Vaiko.

CPI(M) MLA K Mahendran described reports in a section of media in this regard as `not true` and said he had no links with the now decimated LTTE.

`Our party has always opposed the approach of LTTE and we stand for a political solution through dialogue for the ethnic issue. Besides we support granting of autonomy to Tamils in Sri Lanka,` the Perambur MLA said in a statement.
Neither he nor his party had maintained links with LTTE or its spokesperson Nadesan, as mentioned in the reports, he said.

`The report, quoting Kumaran Pathmanaban (LTTE`s international fund manager, now in Sri Lankan detention) as saying that Nadesan spoke to me about the ceasefire proposal
is not true,` he said.

Earlier, reports in a section of the media, quoting an interview by Pathmanaban to a Sri Lankan daily, said Nadesan had `consulted` Mahendran on a New Delhi-drafted ceasefire
plan, which included laying down of arms by the rebels and surrender, which the MLA had `leaked` to Vaiko.

Meanwhile, an MDMK spokesperson declined to comment on the issue.
