Sri lanka president has welcomed Karunanidhi and Jayalalitha to affna peninsula and  personally appeal to the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam to release the civilians held as “human shield at gunpoint.”He said if                 Mr. Karunanidhi is interested in a ceasefire he can persuade the Tamil Tigers to lay down their arms and announce it publicly so that arms surrender could be worked out in a mutually acceptable way as proposed by Mr. Karunanidhi and the Sri Lanka Government.The President said the number of civilians held by LTTE is around 150-200 thousands.Mr. Rajapaksa said the ‘liberated’ Tamils of the North would be brought back to the democratic mainstream and measures taken to ensure that they lived in Sri Lanka with honour and dignity like other ethnic groups in other parts of the nation.
