Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, Jayalalithaa asked the Sri Lankan government to take immediate steps to resettle Internally Displaced persons, who are currently housed in temporary shelters in the island nation.
She conveyed her concern over their plight to the island nation's envoy to India, Prasad Kariyawasam, who called on her at the Secretariat on Thursday, an official release said.
She also said the Sri Lankan Navy should stop firing at Indian fishermen and arresting them.
The meeting was described as a "courtesy call".
The Sri Lankan envoy's meeting comes a day after US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, during her meeting with Jayalalithaa, voiced concern over the plight of IDPs in the island nation.
So, all of you are telling there is no need to resettle the Tamils? or vacate the HSZ so that the people could go back to their homes?

OK, by the way, send those Sri Lankan refugees here. The conditions in camps for them are better than for the othe citizens!

Dear Chief Minister, Pls attend following majior issues in Tamilanadu 1st, we'll take care about our Tamil Neighbor.
"The World Bank is currently assisting the Tamilnadu in reducing poverty. High drop-out and low completion of secondary schools continue to hinder the quality of training in the population. Other problems include class, gender, inter-district and urban-rural disparities. Based on URP – Consumption for the period 2004–2005, percentage of the state's population Below Poverty Line was 27.5%.The Oxford Poverty & Human Development Initiative ranks Tamil Nadu to have a Multidimensional Poverty Index of 0.141, which is in the level of Ghana among the developing countries. Corruption is a major problem in the state with Transparency International ranking it the second most corrupt among the states of India."
