(CHENNAI, India NDTV) - DMK president M Karunanidhi on Tuesday welcomed the idea of a referendum for creation of a separate Tamil Ealam and called for India to play a role in this regard.

"The demand for a referendum among Tamils for a separate Eelam is welcome. Some countries have earned recognition following such referendum at the intervention of the United Nations (UN)," he said writing in party mouthpiece 'Murasoli.'

On that basis, UN should take efforts for the creation of a Tamil Eelam, he said, adding India should extend "required support and pressure" UN in this regard.

Slamming the law and order situation under AIADMK rule, Mr Karunanidhi said over 380 murders had occurred during the 11 months it had been in office.

He cited instances of robbery, chain-snatching, lock-up deaths and Paramakudi firing incident to contest Chief Minister Jayalalithaa's remarks at a Delhi meeting on internal security on Monday that no major untoward incidents hurting peace had happened during the 11 month AIADMK rule.
