Now demo against Thonda in Tamil Nadu

A Tamil Nadu political group identifying itself as Naan Thamil staged a demonstration on Friday outside a hotel in Kandasala, Tamil Nadu where Minister Arumugam Thondaman was staying. The group said they were demonstrating after hearing that the Minister had misbehaved in the hotel. The Police arrived at the scene and arrested some of the protestors.

G. Naguleswaran, the Minister’s Media Secretary, denied the Minister had misbehaved, but confirmed that a small group had staged a demonstration. “The claims against the Minister are false, and we have denied these allegations in India. The Minister is on his way back to Colombo,” he said. Late last month, Uva Province Minister Senthil Thondaman, nephew of Minister Arumugam Thondaman, was assaulted by a group of Tamil activists during a visit to Tamil Nadu. He had taken part in religious activities at Thirunallar Temple in Pondicherry, and was surrounded by a group of about 20 Tamil activists when he stepped out of the kovil. The group waved black flags and shouted slogans against the Sri Lankan government.

Earlier this week, a Sri Lankan hockey team that was in Chennai for sports training was chased away by a group of Chennai youth, according Indian media reports.
