A large banner, portraying Sri Lankan President as seeking forgiveness of Chief Minister for the derogatory article against her in a defence website, today appeared at a main junction in Mettupalayam, about 40 km from here.

The banner, written in Tamil and showing Rajapakse with folded hands, read "Amma, I have made a big mistake. Please forgive me and give me life," police said.

The 20 feet X 10 feet banner has the names of Town AIADMK, Amma Peravai, Students wing, trade union wing and Farmers association among others, they said.

yesterday tendered an unqualified apology for publishing the article on its Defence website and removed the post following strong condemnation from political parties in Tamil Nadu.
