Referring to a news report that India will supply two warships to Sri Lanka, Karunanidhi said here Friday: "The news report proves the charge levied by some that the Indian government helps only Sri Lanka and is not concerned about Indian fishermen or the Lankan Tamils."
He said Sri Lanka will attack Indian fishermen using the very same ships and urged the central government to scrap the idea of helping that country.
Karunanidhi said the DMK party did not believe the charge that Indian government helped Sri Lanka during the internal war in 2009.
In 2009, the DMK was part of the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government.
Karunanidhi also urged the central government to take steps to release 107 Indian fishermen lodged in Sri Lankan jails.
