The A.I.A.D.M.K said in parliament that India must oppose a resolution in the UNHRC moved by the US, UK and some other countries on giving two more years, till 2019, for Sri Lanka to submit its report.

AIADMK leader V Maitreyan raised the matter in Rajya Sabha during Zero Hour and urged the Centre to take the initiative to see that an international independent investigation is ordered.

He said that a Resolution was adopted in the UNHRC sponsored by the USA and Sri Lanka in 2015 that called for an independent investigation in Sri Lanka with the participation of International judges, lawyers and jurists to be conducted.

He also mentioned a letter written by former Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalitha to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Some other members including CPI leader D Raja questioned the government to clear its stand on the issue and wanted the matter to be discussed in detail in the parliament.
