Seeman Released

Film director Seeman and two others were released from the Central jail here today following the conditional bail granted to them by Madras High Court.Seeman, Periyar Dravida Kazhagam president Kolathur Mani and Tamil Desiya Pothuudamai Katchi president Maniyarasan were arrested for speaking in favour of the banned LTTE at a public meeting in Erode on December 14.
The High Court granted conditional bail to all the three yesterday on personal bonds of Rs 10,000 each with two sureties for the sum and to report before the Erode police whenever required.Seeman and Mani were arrested on December 19 last year and Maniyarasan the next day and were lodged in the jail here, after producing before Erode Sessions court, which had denied bail for them twice.Replying to reporters, who were waiting outside the jail, both Seeman and Mani said, "their sentiments and emotions for the suffering Tamils continued to be the same."
However, they expressed regrets that Congress-led UPA government at the Centre failed to respect the sentiments of over six crore Tamils, seeking ceasefire in Sri Lanka.Claiming that even a ceasefire was declared in Palestine Mani said "the Centre has made no efforts to end the crisis in Sri Lanka or pressurise it to announce a ceasefire"."We do not understand the reason for Congress remaining silent, despite state Assembly passing a resolution and an all party meeting, headed by Chief Minister M Karunanidhi, meeting Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, in this regard," they said.However they said they would mobilise and consolidate people and work against 'Anti-Tamil Congress' in the ensuing Lok Sabha elections.
