The Viduthalai Chiruthaaigal Katchi (VCK) on Wednesday condemned the demolition of a compound wall and removal of park at the Mullivaaikal Memorial in Thanjavur, built in honour of Tamil 'martyrs' in the civil war in Sri Lanka and demanded that the state government restore it.
Officials had demolished the wall and removed the park on November 13, alleging that it was constructed on encroached highway land.
Government should restore the wall, VCK leader Thol Thirumavalavan told reporters here.
On the Sri Lankan Tamils issue, he welcomed the tough message from British Prime Minister David Cameron to Lanka, and said DMK chief Karunanidhi-led Tamil Eelam Supporters Organisation has urged the Centre to pass a resolution in the upcoming Parliament session pressing for an international probe into the alleged war crimes in the island-nation.
"DMK MPs and myself will raise the issue during the Parliament session." he said.
If Lankan government does not come forward to conduct probe on alleged human rights violation and war crimes, then Centre should seek an international probe, he said.
He said the VCK will campaign for the DMK candidate for the December 4 by-election to the state assembly from the Yercaud constituency.
