The sudden volte face by DMK chief M Karunanidhi on his demand for Eelam in the context of the Tamil Eelam Supporters Organisation (TESO) meeting on August 12 — where no resolution would be passed in support of Eelam — has least angered or even surprised many Tamil rights groups. They feel the manner in which Karunanidhi made his view known has totally exposed his apathy for the sentiments of Tamils.
