TN party seeks Rahul's intervention on SL Tamils issue

6 February 2014 03:06 am - 11     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi, which advocates the cause of Sri Lankan Tamils, sought Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi's intervention to ensure India's support for a resolution against Sri Lanka in a UN body next month.

VCK president Thol Thirumavalavan, who represents Chidambaram constituency in the Lok Sabha, called on Gandhi at New Delhi and had a 45-minute discussion with him during which he submitted a memorandum to the Congress leader.

"I request you to take necessary steps to announce the support of the Indian government for the UNHRC (United Nations Human Rights Council) resolution seeking international independent inquiry for the genocidal killings of Sri Lankan Tamils," he said in the memorandum which was released by his party here.

AIADMK and DMK have already appealed to the Centre to move a separate resolution against Sri Lanka for alleged war crimes.

The VCK leader also asked Gandhi to use his 'good office' to introduce and pass the Prevention of Atrocities (POA) Act Amendment Bill in the current session of Parliament. (Source; Indian Express)

    Rahul is a true bastard if he supports the killers of his father and led your alien mother to be out of life.

    Why doesn't this guy takes the case of DAILITS (Untouchables) to the UNHRC?

    Rahul and India will learn from their mistakes. Sri Lankan leaders will never and keep making old mistakes over and over again.

    The persons who killed Rajiv are jailed. India thus supported the elimination of the LTTE successfully. India and Rahul will not nominate ex-LTTE members as their general secretaries and consultants like what SL and her leaders are doing for their survival.
