With an aim of reinforcing India’s commitment towards ethnic Sri Lankan Tamils, a delegation of MPs led by Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj will travel to Sri Lanka next week to assess the resettlement and political process in war-torn areas.

The 15-member multi-party delegation with representatives from Congress, BJP, DMK, AIADMK and Left parties will be in Sri Lanka from April 16 to April 21.

The delegation is likely to meet the country’s top leadership, including President Mahinda Rajapaksa and travel to northern and eastern parts of the country, which bore the maximum brunt of the nearly three decades-old civil war.

At least seven members of the delegation are from Tamil Nadu, where the issue of Sri Lankan Tamils is emotive.

The MPs, while assessing the process of resettlement of Tamils displaced by the war that ended three years back, would press for an early political solution which involves devolution of powers to the Tamils.
