Embarrassed by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Karunanidhi's poem mourning the death of LTTE leader Thamilselvan, the Congress on Monday sought to distance itself from the DMK chief's action saying that the Congress does not "subscribe" to his views.
"The LTTE is a banned organisation. The Congress's stance is very clear and we condemn any form of terrorism. The LTTE was involved in the assassination of our beloved leader (former PM Rajiv Gandhi). He (Karunanidhi) is not praising that institution, he was praising an individual," said AICC media cell chairperson Veerappa Moily.
Asked whether the Congress was reluctant to condemn Karunanidhi's poem to stay in power at the Centre, Moily said, "It was Karunanidhi's personal views. We cannot curtail the liberty of an individual to express his views."
"We will not support eulogising of terrorism in any form and we will not forget the action perpetrated by the LTTE," Congress spokesperson Jayanthi Natarajan said at a press briefing.
