Human Rights -
Slain LTTE chief V Prabhakaran's mother Parvathi Ammal should be allowed to enter Tamil Nadu for medical treatment if she accepts certain conditions like getting treated at a hospital selected by the state, the Tamil Nadu Government has told the Centre.
In a letter to the Centre, the state government has said Parvathi Ammal, who was last month deported by immigration officials to Malaysia from Chennai immediately on landing, be allowed to enter if she accepts certain conditions.
"The conditions are: She should undergo treatment in the hospital selected by the Tamil Nadu Government and the treatment cost will be borne by the government and that she should take necessary security cover," Chief Minister M Karunanidhi told reporters in New Delhi.
"These are not stringent conditions... if she accepts these conditions then the Centre can be asked to allow her," he said.
The state government has also written to Union Home Secretary G K Pillai in this regard.
Karunanidhi said the state government will also give its reply to Madras High Court which is hearing a case relating to Parvathi Ammal's treatment.
In Chennai, Deputy Chief Minister M K Stalin informed the Assembly "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.
He recalled 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.
However, when political parties had raised the issue (of her deportation) in the Assembly, Karunanidhi said he was not aware of her visit.
