Oppose UN resolution on SL, Vaiko tells Modi

18 March 2017 05:23 pm - 7     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


India's MDMK general secretary Vaiko on Friday urged the Indian government to oppose the resolution in the United Nations that would give two more years to Sri Lanka to submit its report based on investigation into alleged war crimes against the Tamils.

“With all sincerity and anguish, I would request you that the Indian Government should oppose this resolution,” he said. If India supported the resolution, then it would be recorded in the history as a country that supported the genocide of Tamils, he warned in his letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. A copy of the letter was released to the media here.

Noting that Tamils were terribly shocked to know that the US, the UK, Northern Ireland and Macedonia had sponsored a resolution in the UNHRC, He said the “most unkindest cut” was the newly added provision that said only with the Sri Lankan government’s consent foreign jurists, lawyers, rapporteurs could enter Sri Lanka in relation to this issue.(The Hindu)

    Please keep your hands off Sri Lanka. It was you people who trained and armed the tigers in the first place. That contributed a lot to the long bloody war. Fyi majority of the Tamil people live outside of northern province peacefully with the others. Give the existing peace a chance. Don't play politics with this issue.

    These Tamil Nadu politicians were "SLEEPING" when the Indian Army was killing the Tamils in the North and East of Sri Lanka.

    He himself can't find solutions to his people's problem in his province of India. He just wants to show that he is going to show Tamilnadu he is the Savior of people. In reality, it is not so. Who cares his commendations or recommendations
