Indian Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy has said that India should not join human rights groups at a UN meeting tomorrow in passing a “one sided” resolution condemning Sri Lanka for alleged human rights violations during its war against the LTTE.
India’s participation in the resolution would make it vulnerable to similar resolutions over Kashmir or Manipur; Swamy said and suggested that it should urge Sri Lanka to devolve power instead.
Meanwhile, Tamil Nadu political parties who want India to support the US resolution against Sri Lanka are gearing up to pose questions in the Indian parliament in this regard.
The Indian Budget debate is due to begin tomorrow and the ruling Tamil Nadu AIHDMK party and Karunanidhi’s DMK party will pose their questions.
These parties will also request the Indian government to state their stance regarding the resolution forwarded by the US against Sri Lanka.
Indian Foreign Minister S M Krishna previously stated that India’s decision would be based on two crucial factors.
He stated that India’s close relationship with Sri Lanka and Tamil Nadu’s sensitive responses will both be taken in to consideration before India makes a decision.
However, Indian media reports indicate that there is no possibility that India will oppose Sri Lanka at the Un Human Rights Council sessions.
