Vaiko slams UN resolution on Sri Lanka

Vaiko slams UN resolution on Sri Lanka

October 1, 2015   12:31 pm

The United Nation’s resolution authorising Sri Lanka to hold a probe into war crimes is bound to turn detrimental to ethnic Tamils, India’s MDMK general secretary Vaiko has said.

“Though the U.S., Russia, Pakistan and India have divergent views on international matters, they have together supported Sri Lanka. The murder of justice will be widely exposed. The MDMK will mobilise 10 lakh youth to create awareness of the injustice perpetrated on Sri Lankan Tamils,” Vaiko told reporters.

Be it during the present NDA government at the Centre or the previous UPA regime, India’s support to Sri Lanka remained the same, he said. The DMK and the PMK which are now issuing statements did not raise their voice when they were part of the UPA government. Had the DMK taken a strong stand, the MDMK would have supported it, and the war crimes could have been prevented, Vaiko said.

The People’s Welfare Front consisting of the MDMK, the CPI, the CPI (M) and the VCK will take significant decisions at the Front’s Tiruvarur meeting scheduled for October 5, Vaiko added. (The Hindu)
