Accused by rivals of failing to ensure ceasefire in Sri Lanka, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi today went on a sudden fast declaring he was ready to be “yet another victim” of violence in the island nation.

In a surprise move, the 84-year-old Chief Minister drove to the memorial of late C N Annadurai early this morning and sat on a fast there demanding immediate ceasefire in the Sri Lankan army’s offensive against the LTTE.

“Let me be one of Rajapaksa’s (Sri Lankan President’s) victims,” he told reporters at the fast site.

“This is my sacrifice on behalf of all Tamils,” said Mr. Karunanidhi, who recently underwent a major surgery for his back pain.

In in the meanwhile Prime Minister Manmohan Singh spoke over phone to Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi.

Sitting on a wheel chair, Mr. Karunanidhi said he did not want DMK men to go on a fast. “It is my decision and I do not want others to join,” he said even as a host of DMK leaders, including his daughter Kanimozhi and his grand nephew Kalanidhi Maran rushed to spot to see him.

Huge crowds of DMK supporters gathered at the fast site near the Marina beach.

Mr. Karunanidhi’s two wives Dayalu and Rajathi were at the fast site where a bed was also placed, indicating that it could be a long drawn affair.

Prominent leaders including Union Minister T R Baalu and state minister Arcot Veeraswamy were among those present at the fast site.

    In India most popular and power full leader is Mr. Karunanidhi (our Leader), no one beat with him political as well us world economist, Good roll model to all the politics.
    Genus in all in all. But why he has been silent to Tamil Eelam? Past one year.
    Congress will not support him! Or what to be CM seat?
    Now all over word, People have comment base on MP’s election 2009.
    This is mostly drama to Tamil Eelam, . CM will take the action before 6 month back means I will join to us. But it is so so late to the Tamil Eelam @ Lanka or All over the Tamil People
    Because most of the people have died and injured, the are like almost slaves.

    We have little fear about State and central party
    Then why we give support of congress.
    Direct or indirect Indian army support to lanka government. Without the knowledge to Tamilnadu chief mister, that time agree with Congress government, now what going on them.
    Sorry for any mistakes

    Both the top leaders of Tamilnadu vie with each other tin projecting themselves as the true champion of the cause of Tamil Eelam. And this has become the most important election issue putting behind all other issues concerning Governing at the Centre. Every one of the so called leaders of Tamilnadu Politics have their share of somersault. For common men the whole issue is confusing and they look bewildered without knowing what to do. A Sadhu has joined the drama stage with his own version of the happenings there and indirectly accusing the Governments of the day. The whole sound and furour will abruptly come to an end on the 13th May 2009 at 5 pm, once the polling is over. Let us endure this nonsense till then.

    What a paithiyakarathanam and another move smacking politics. If they are really worried about the tamil inam, do something useful other than election stunts.

    what was the action taken by the CM who held captive the Central Govt on many petty issues including allotment of wanted ministries and why display of heroics at this stage

    LTTE needs to be eliminated if tamil inam is to survice.
