The DMK on Sunday urged the Centre to support a US-backed resolution against Sri Lanka at the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC).

The US is planning to move a resolution at the UNHRC in March over the alleged war crimes committed by Sri Lanka during the war against LTTE rebels.

A resolution passed during party's two-day convention in Trichy also demanded the UPA government at the Centre propose a separate resolution in the UN against the Island nation. "India should move a resolution separately at the UNHRC seeking a referendum among the Sri Lankan Tamils to ascertain the political solution required for them," the resolution said.

The resolution added that there should an international independent inquiry into the alleged war crimes committed by the Lankan government.

The DMK passed 15 resolutions at the convention. A resolution condemned the Centre for its affidavit filed at the Madras high court which said Katchatheevu belongs to Sri Lanka and Indian fishermen don't have any fishing rights in the waters near it. The DMK urged Center to hold talks with Sri Lankan government to protect the rights of the Indian fishermen.

Another resolution demanded the Centre and the state government to take necessary steps to implement the Sethu project.

The DMK, an erstwhile alliance partner of the Congress-led UPA government, passed a resolution opposing the foreign direct investment ( FDI) in retail.
Another resolution demanded the Centre abolish death penalty.

The party lambasted the Tamil Nadu government for its 'failure to maintain the law and order situation' in the state.(TOI)
