In an apparent move to favour Congress demand, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi on Thursday warned that his government would not hesitate to take action against anyone, speaking or acting in support of any banned outfit.

The Chief Minister's statement comes in the wake of Congress leaders' demand that his government take action against the supporters of the LTTE following the attack on the TNCC headquarters here, allegedly by Viduthalai Chiruthigal Katchi (VCK) activists.

Congress leaders had been demanding arrest of VCK founder T Thirumavalavan for his "pro-LTTE remarks".

Writing in the party mouthpiece 'Murasoli', Karunanidhi said DMK never supported any banned outfits or their supporters.

On the Sri Lankan Tamils issue, he said the DMK was concerned about their safety.

He said the Centre had sanctioned a Special Protection Group at Chennai, which would be used for South India. Recently, SPG Director General J K Dutt had said four camps, one each at Mumbai, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Chennai, would be set up, he added.
