Indian political forums are holding extensive discussions on whether India should support Sri Lanka or not at the Geneva Human Rights Council sessions.
Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has called for a Congress Party meeting to discuss this matter on the 22nd of this month.
India has a history of distancing itself from resolutions brought against a single country whether it is a neighbouring nation or not.
However, the Indian government has found itself in a tight spot in this situation with pressure from the Tamil Nadu political parties.
Meanwhile, the Dravida Munnettra Kazhagam alias the DMK Party of Tamil Nadu which has raised concerns about India’s stance on Sri Lanka at the Geneva Human Rights Council session has convened a special meeting on the 20th of March.
This special meeting will be held at the Party Headquarters in Chennai under the patronage of the Leader of the DMK Party M Karunanidhi.
Last Wednesday, Karunanidhi stated that it will consider moving away from the Congress alliance if support is given to Sri Lanka at Geneva.
Karunanidhi had further stated that these decisions would be taken by the top level Executive Committee of the DMK Party.
