CPI today alleged that the Centre's pro-Rajapaksa stand was the main reason for Sri Lanka's "continued ill-treatment" of Tamils in that country.

Instead of standing behind the Tamils and making efforts to find a lasting solution, the Government, for reasons best known to it, continue to support Sri Lanka President Mahinda Rajapaksa, CPI National Secretary D Raja charged at a press conference at Coimbatore. Reiterating the CPI's stand that there was the need to find a political solution to the problem of Lankan Tamils,he said:

 "Tamils there do not want sympathy or money from the Government for their rehablitation, but to establish their right to live with dignity as a citizen." Raja alleged that fishermen from Tamil Nadu were continuously being attacked by Sri Lankan Naval force and UPA government was still remaining as "mute spectator".

He claimed that the state government had taken a conflicting stand in connection with commuting the death sentence of three convicts in Rajiv Gandhi assassination case.

Though ruling AIADMK was a party to the unanimous resolution passed in the state assembly to reconsider the mercy petitions, Government supported the death sentence in the High Court, he said, adding, "Tamil Nadu Chief Minister should reply to this". However, CPI wanted the Centre to take note of the assembly resolution and act immediately, he said. In a separate affidavit, the government had said the State governor had rejected the mercy petitions "as there are no extenuating circumstances warranting mercy".

On the AIADMK government's performance, Raja said "it is only six months..we are assessing the performance." On the failure of the AIADMK combine (CPI was a partner during April 13 assembly polls) to fight together in the recent local body elections, he admitted that it was not an healthy sign and stressed the need to come together.
