Both the Indian Rajya Sabha and the Lok Sabha had to be adjourned till 12 noon today following the uproar in the House over the over the issue of alleged atrocities by Sri Lankan forces, Indian media reports said.

The second day of the Budget session on Tuesday began with an uproar in both Houses over the SL issue.
MPs created a ruckus in Parliament and showed newspapers carrying reports of a video threatening to expose alleged war crimes in Sri Lanka in Parliament.

DMK, AIADMK and the Left parties submitted notices for suspension of the Question Hour to discuss the issue.
CPI leader D Raja said in the Rajya Sabha, "The government has to take a stand on Sri Lanka, it is an issue of war crime and Human Rights violation. We want the Prime Minister to respond."

Meanwhile, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee also spoke on the issue in the Lok Sabha. He said, "PM has written a letter to Karunanidhi and the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, the date is not yet fixed. We do not support any specific resolution for a particular country. We will determine a time to discuss this after discussions with the human rights team," Pranab said.

We are very sorry that there has been no mention of the pathetic conditions of the Tamils, who are undergoing lot of mental agony. The government has not made any mention of the human rights violation that has taken place in the recent war in Sri Lanka. More than 1 lakh people have been killed in the wars," DMK leader TR Baalu said.(IBNLive)

    What about the atrocities committed by LTTE on the civilians over 2 decades? Let us not forget that LTTE was involved in assasinating the former priminister of India Rajiv Ghandi.

    The way the Indian politicians behave as if Srilanka is part of India, anyhow, whatever they decide will backfire on them, India will be the losers at the end. China is already breathing very close to their neck.

    patriotism is the final refuge of the scoundrel. nothing to celebrate in defeating a bunch of rag-tag child soldiers. sri lankans are filled with a false sense of pride.

    That is exactly what I say - we should avoid getting played into others' hands and finally make the country pay for it.

    Who cares ,that is in Indian Parliament, what we must care is our 225 Parliamentarians who is working very hard 24/7 for Sri Lankan people without taking any rest,salary,Vehicle Permit ,etc,etc,etc

    Mind your own business India... Your so bothered about Tamils, and LTTE what about what ever they did for 30years where were yourl..Why no one reacted when we had the war.. Think about Kashmir and Manipur ;dont over react, End of the day we all are Asians for the west, First its Srilanka next its India. India got many things to fix in their country rather than medling in others business; Leave us alone..

    Kondebendapucheena Tuesday, 13 March 2012 07:27 AM

    They must have more concern as they were more responsible by creating Monsters like Prabhakaran and LTTE in 70s

    Results of Sri Lanka's poor diplomatic relations. Sri Lanka still thinks we are a island cut off from the rest of the world.

    It is very clear the government is using the whole Geneva issue to divert public attention away from the day-to-day living problems we have to face with, while no attempt is being made to implement its own LLRC commission recommendations. We cannot go on dancing only to govt’s “patriotic” tunes as sooner or later some other country may take matters to their own hands to punish us.

    Leslie Tuesday, 13 March 2012 07:59 AM

    Irrespective of the discussions in the Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha it depends on what stand India takes on the International forum. This will show the true face of India whether they are sympathetic towards the Tamil cause or they don't care about it.
