Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi says it would be unrealistic to talk of separate country for Sri Lankan Tamils.

He told the state Assembly on Wednesday that it would be unrealistic to talk of a separate country for Sri Lankan Tamils anymore and that it would be best to press for a fair deal for them within Sri Lanka.

He also felt it would be unwise on the part of Tamil Nadu political leaders to make any comments that could inflame passions among the Sinhalese.

Chief Minister Karunanidhi said only by working with the Mahinda Rajapakse government could one hope to ensure proper rehabiliation for the displaced Tamils and also secure Tamils of Lanka justice and adequate say in governance.
