India should take efforts to solve Lankan Tamils problem: CPI

The Communist Party of India (CPI) on Friday said that the Centre should take efforts to find a solution to the problems of Tamil population in Sri Lanka, considering the changed political equation in that country.

Though there were high expectations after the defeat of Mahinda Rajapaksa and installation of Maithripala Sirisena as President last year, but no development had taken place either with regard to Tamils or giving equal status on par with Sinhalese to them, CPI Tamil Nadu Secretary R Mutharasan told reporters in Coimbatore.

With Ranil Wickramesinghe taking charge as Prime Minister of Island Nation for the fourth time, NDA government should take serious efforts from the word go to find an amicable solution to the contentious issue, he said.
