    The incident shows that Sri Lankan Government is not taking any serious effort to bring the Tamil refugees to their home land Sri Lanka. while they are suffering as refugees in other country, we see their lands being used by the army even they started cultivating it. instead of blaming India for the incident it will be very useful to ask the Sri Lankan government that what concrete actions it is taking for the life of the refugees?

    It is about time Jayalalithaa take immediate measures to improve the living conditions of the refugees in their camps instead of worrying about the Tamils living in Sri Lanka whose living conditions are thousand times better.
