Chennai, Feb 22 (IANS) PMK founder S.Ramadoss on Thursday condemned the Tamil Nadu government for not taking action to get around 2,700-3,000 Tamil persons out of jails in Andhra Pradesh.

In a statement issued here, Ramadoss said the Tamil detainees were languishing in the jails on false charges of smuggling Red Sanders tree.

Ramadoss said nearly 90 per cent of detainees were arrested in Tamil Nadu and not in Andhra Pradesh.

Even if there is a bail, the Andhra Pradesh police book the detainees again under a different case preventing their release, he claimed.

He said there were around 25 cases against each Tamil detainee lodged in the Andhra jails.
