LTTE is a terrorist organization, India seeks Prabhakaran’s extradition every year: Pranab

NEW DELHI - External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee has said that there is no confusion regarding status of the LTTE, and added that every year India seeks the extradition of Tamil Tigers chief V. Prabhakaran.

“Every year we ask for extradition of Prabhakaran. LTTE is a terrorist organization. It is banned in India, it is banned in Sri Lanka,” Mukherjee said.
The senior Congress leader was clarifying his party’s stand on LTTE being a terrorist organization while speaking exclusively to NDTV.
Commenting on the tie up with Left, Mukherjee said: “It is Left who deserted us by withdrawing support and that on an issue where we tried to resolve the differences by series of discussions.”
He also added: “What would happen after the Elections will depend on numbers. After all ours is a multi-party system. Which political party holds how many seats in a vast electorate of more than 710 million voters, it is very difficult to make any assessment, precise assessment before the poll results are out and even two phases elections have not yet taken place.”
