Jayalalitha requests for another resolution on Sri Lanka

Sunday, 10 February 2013 - 8:04


Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa Jayaram blamed Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for the watered down US resolution at the UN Human Rights Council against Sri Lanka last year.

She said that there is information that the US is bringing another resolution and that the Indian government, based on the resolution passed by state assembly, should table a resolution on Sri Lanka at the UN.

However, the Jathika Hela Urumaya is of the view that the Indian Central Government should not pay attention to calls made by the Tamil Nadu government.

National Organizer of the JHU Nishantha Sri Warnasinghe expressed further views regarding the matter.


Sri Lanka Saturday said it hoped India will vote for it in the upcoming UN Human Rights Council meeting in Geneva.

Meanwhile, Minister for Public Administration W.D.J. Seneviratne told reporters in Kerala that there had been a remarkable improvement in the human rights situation in Sri Lanka.

The Minister also stated that they expect India will vote for it in the upcoming UN Human Rights Council meeting in Geneva.
