Pass resolution against Sri Lanka: Vaiko

Pass resolution against Sri Lanka: Vaiko

September 6, 2015   06:50 am

India’s Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam general secretary Vaiko has appealed to Chief Minister Jayalalithaa to pass a resolution against Sri Lanka seeking international inquiry against alleged war crimes by Sri Lankan Army during war with LTTE.

Addressing a gathering at Kodaikanal, he said that a US representative recently announced that the inquiry could be conducted by the Sri Lankan government.

It was against the stand taken by the US earlier. Sri Lanka that did not allow even an international monitoring committee to inspect the affected areas in the island nation should not be allowed to have an internal enquiry. It will not be impartial and just.

At this stage, the State government’s appeal would have a bearing. Already, the Tamil Nadu government had passed a resolution in this connection.

The previous Congress-led Central government betrayed the Tamils and the Modi government was also acting against the interests of Tamils. It was high time another resolution was passed, he said.

 Vaiko ruled out alliance either with AIADMK or with DMK in the forthcoming Assembly elections.

The People Welfare Front was the only alternative to these parties. “‘Our alliance is intact and it will finalise the alliance at the time of elections,”‘ he said. (The Hindu)
