Tamil Nadu governor K Rosaiah on Friday urged the Indian government to impose economic sanctions on Sri Lanka and take steps to ensure that those displayed by the ethnic conflict there returned to their original homes.
 
Delivering his address on the first day of the first assembly session of 2013, Rosaiah said: "I reiterate the resolve expressed by the Tamil Nadu assembly June 8, 2011 to urge the Indian government to initiate action by working with other nations for imposition of an economic embargo on the Sri Lankan government till the Tamils living in camps are resettled in their own places and are allowed to live with dignity, self-respect and equal constitutional rights on par with the Sinhalese."

According to him, the rehabilitation measures taken by the Sri Lankan government were not at par with the expectations. 

Referring to the attacks on Indian fishermen by Sri Lankan security forces, Rosaiah said: "The fishermen of Tamil Nadu, who earn their livelihood in their traditional fishing areas of the Palk Bay region, are victims of repeated harassment and murderous attacks by the Lankan Navy." 

He said the Tamil Nadu government was anguished at the harassment of Indian fishermen by the Sri Lankan Navy while the Indian government showed "utter disregard" to their woes. 

Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalithaa has emerged as a trenchant critics of the Sri Lankan regime for among other things the mass killing of Tamil civilians in the ethnic conflict that ended in May 2009. (IANS)

    Big talk. When we imposed a travel ban to TN they came crawling to us to lift it. They need us as much as we need them. All this gibberish is only for the consumption of the ignorant.

    The Governor's address is nothing but what is given by the state govt. only. These are not Rosiah's views but only Jaya's

    Those in favour of sanctions should understand if sanctions are imposed only the ordinary people will be affected. Typical example is North korea
