Chennai: India would support any resolution brought forward by United Nations against Sri Lanka if the island nation does not honour recommendations of the world body on human rights issues, Minister of State in the PMO V Narayanasamy said here on Sunday.

"When United Nations brought forward a resolution against Sri Lanka, India voted for it. If UN's recommendations are not honoured by Sri Lanka, India will support any resolution brought by it against the island nation," he told reporters.
Observing that the Centre was always for protecting Sri Lankan Tamils, he noted that powers were given to them through the Rajiv Gandhi-Jayawardene accord. "But Rajapaksa is not accepting them now.

"India is taking steps to get powers for Sri Lankan Tamils. That's why India is taking a neutral stand. Not like some Tamil parties and Tamil Nadu government, which take decisions and pass resolution without thinking...," he said.
To a query over the delay in execution of Afzal Guru, he said the Centre had executed 26/11 convict Ajmal Kasab after following due procedures and after his mercy petition was dismissed by the President.

"Likewise, in the case of Afzal Guru, we had to follow procedures and he was executed after his mercy petition was rejected by the President."

To another query on the next general elections, he said "Congress will complete its term and will face the 2014 polls. Congress will come to power in the elections." (PTI)

    This person has been involved in a sex scandal and what right he has to talk about the Tamils... via DM iPad app

    buffaloa citizen Monday, 11 February 2013 08:39 AM

    Certainly... that is why 750 races with more than 2500 languages and more than 50 religeos sects manage to live together and call themselves proudly "Indian". Sri Lanka is a shame.

    buffaloa citizen Monday, 11 February 2013 08:43 AM

    Dont say it, do it and see what happens.

    buffaloa citizen Monday, 11 February 2013 08:45 AM

    How can MR go for medical check-up to USA? How can Weerawansa send Sashi and his kids to see Disney Land? How can MR send his son to Sandhurst University? How can Ranil and Anura get their Oxford degrees? How can we throw away our underpants and start wearing the "amuday"? Sri Lankans can surely fart a lot without any shit.

    Do you know that the total Muslim population in India is far more than the Muslims in Pakistan? India treats it's minorities well; their democracy is far more advanced than what is in Sri Lanka.

    buffaloa citizen Monday, 11 February 2013 08:50 AM

    Just shows that you can fool a Sri Lankan with a plate of manioc or even grass but not the same cannot be said about Indians.

    aja Monday, 11 February 2013 08:55 AM

    Thank you india. Thank you sir. Don't forget here LLRC implementation ZERO and many drama and acting are ongoing. don't believe this sir.

    hemjey Monday, 11 February 2013 01:25 PM

    "India is taking steps to get powers for Sri Lankan Tamils" - First give powers to Indian Tamils!

    007 Monday, 11 February 2013 05:34 AM

    Well that is now in black and white. It is time the Sri Lanka government realize that they can not hoodwink the whole world.

    Sapumal Bandara Monday, 11 February 2013 05:54 AM

    Can India be proud of its Human Rights Record???

    Fox 01 Monday, 11 February 2013 06:11 AM

    Lanka should leave UN, {this was JRJ's advice to lankan delegation at UN ( including his own brother) when SL had a problem with UN during his presidency.}

    Thomas Monday, 11 February 2013 06:19 AM

    Sri Lanka is a member nation of UN, and the pledges given by SL at last Geneva meeting promising to implement LLRC be honored, when we do not honor, don't expect India to support us..

    Real Peace Monday, 11 February 2013 06:21 AM

    India is not great, but better than us

    malkanthi Monday, 11 February 2013 06:29 AM

    This man if not mistaken visited our country last year to attend the defense seminar and delivered a juicy message in favor of us and enjoyed a superb, luxury holiday on our account. Typical Indian attitude!

    John Monday, 11 February 2013 06:43 AM

    Yes. Actually.
    We should re-think about UN and it's Principles as an early member of it.
    We should think Why is it was formed? what are the targets of it and how it works ?
    Now there's no future objectives and a vision only dance according to US and West.

    Labby Monday, 11 February 2013 06:47 AM

    And the saga continues...

    Nihal Perera Monday, 11 February 2013 11:01 AM

    India mind their own business. Whole Muslim world knows how India treating to Kashmiri citizens. Whole world muslims saw how Gujarat and Mumbay massacred innocent unarmed civilians.

    edward Monday, 11 February 2013 06:57 AM

    SL should respect and face if any oblige to consequence of this ,otherwise its Sri lanka people will suffer. Remember in the past 1987-88 UN stood behalf of Sri lankan who brought same question against those period of Government .

    tina Monday, 11 February 2013 11:40 AM

    Very well said buffaloa citizen...the only thing we do is thrash other countries in utter filth or find fault in them and brush our problems under the carpet and pretend everything is perfect...!!!!

    GOBI Monday, 11 February 2013 07:17 AM

    This is nothing to do with this man. It is the policy of India. You will get the same answer from anyone from the ruling government.

    pooooojapakse Monday, 11 February 2013 11:42 AM

    Nihal, it doest mean you also do injustice and justify it. if you go on like this you'll get no-where.

    ravi Monday, 11 February 2013 04:15 PM

    pooooojapakse Monday, 11 February 2013 11:51 AM
