    Now India has only one option,it has to vote for Srilanka, this vote is very crucial to Srilanka but arch rivals of India, China and Pakistan give their fullest support and number of countries supporting is also high, which turn India is unworthy, if not vote for Lanka, India, land of Koutalya definitely vote for Srilanka,

    To appease both SL govt. and Tamil Nadu govt., best strategy for India is to "Abstain" in voting on UNHRC resolution.
