Chennai: Tamil Nadu government has written to the Centre recommending that Parvathi Ammal, mother of slain LTTE leader V Prabhakaran, be allowed to enter the state
for medical treatment.
Deputy Chief Minister MK Stalin informed the Assembly that "we have written to the Union Home Secretary to consider allowing Parvathi Ammal for treatment in the state provided certain conditions are met".
"We received an e-mail from Parvathi Ammal requesting us to allow her to come to Tiruchirappalli for treatment", Stalin said. However, he did not specify what the conditions were.
He recalled Chief Minister M Karunanidhi`s assurance in the Assembly last month that the state government would write to the Centre on allowing her to undergo treatment in
Tamil Nadu, if she insists on it.
Immigration officials had last month deported Parvathi Ammal to Malaysia when she came to Chennai for treatment. When political parties raised the issue in the Assembly, Karunanidhi had said he was not aware of her visit.
The Madras High Court had on April 30 given two weeks time to Parvathi Ammal to represent to the state government if she wanted to undergo medical treatment here.
