The Chief Minister (CM) designate in Tamil Nadu Jayalalitha Jeyaram has once again called on the Indian government to take measures against the Sri Lanka President for alleged war crimes and genocide of Tamils.
Speaking in her own channel, Jaya TV after her election victory on Friday, Jayaliatha Jeyaram said that it is India's responsibility to ensure a "dignified and honourable existence" for the Tamils in Sri Lanka.
"I will exert pressure on the central government, after I take over as the CM, to take action against the Sri Lankan President before international court for genocide and war crimes. India should take the initiative for this," she said.
If President Mahinda Rajapaksa fails to honour that, she said, India should also take other measures to pressurise Sri Lanka.
"If Sri Lanka government did not oblige to these requests, Indian government has to impose economic sanctions on Sri Lanka together with other countries," Ms Jayalalitha added.
The main reason for the suffering of Tamils in Sri Lanka, according to the newly elected CM, is the Sri Lanka government.
"As Tamils, it is our duty to ensure a good life for the Tamils in Sri Lanka," she said.
"I can act on this regard as the CM on a limited way, but this is an international issue. Therefore, the central government should take action to resolve this." (BBC)

In our country we dont have any problems now and we Sinhala, Muslims, Tamils, and everyone is living happily here. Dont create unnecessary problems in this beautiful island. If you ask from an Inidan you from which country they first say iam from Kerela, Mumbai, Delhi but they never say they are from India. If the same question asked from any sri lankan Sinhala muslim or tamil answer will is Sri Lanka. Pls understand you have been appointed as the CM for Tamil Nandu not Sri Lanka. so mind your own business and try to serve to your state.

Cheap Minister of Tamil Nadu showing her cheap election promises. She thinks that she can bully the SL president from her post of CM of Tamil Nadu? If Indian loses the friendship of SL, it will be India who will suffer more than SL since it will give a chance for China to render its full support. They already dont have Pakistan with them. So dont mind these cheap statements

Economic sanctions on Sri Lanka? This is what exactly we need and we could survive withuot your dhal (paruppu). It is entirely Sri Lankans fault that we never summon TN politicians in international courts for genocide and war crimes commited together with LTTE!
Jan Chandra Saturday, 14 May 2011 03:33 AM
She should have a separate state for Tamils in Tamilnadu. It is not an international problem. it is the Indian problem. India should take these people back after all India is their homeland.
Dr.Inamullah Saturday, 14 May 2011 03:30 AM
This Lady came to Power because of Mahinda Raja Pakshe of Sri Lanka eradicating terror of LTTE..... If she goes against the Central governments Foreign policy....she has to risk the CM seat....and TN ruled by Governor.....
Playing fool with the life and death struggle of Tamils in Sri Lanka.
dilan Saturday, 14 May 2011 03:56 AM
India exports more to SL than SL expoerts to India...SO India is going to loose more than SL.... Go ahead

Very Interesting time ahead for SL as a country and for the present leaders... I am 100% sure that the MR company will have to appear before international courts in the future. If not now. The wheels of justice will give justice to all who need it.

Dilan putha India exports only a negligible portion of their toyal exports to Sri Lanka.But,Sri Lanka imports a major portion of their exports from India.
