The India government has asked 438 arts and science colleges in Tamil Nadu to be closed immediately till further orders as student organisations across the state gear up to organise massive protests from Monday.

The students are demanding that India vote against Sri Lanka on a resolution expected to be moved at a meeting of the United Nation's Human Rights Council in Geneva this month.

The government's decision to close colleges is being seen as a bid to avert any law and order problems on the campuses.

Meanwhile Indian media speculates that India would vote in favor of the US resolution due to be adopted against the Island next Wednesday.

However Indian media notes that the countries decision has not been motivated by Tamilnadu’s interests, but would be based on the ‘viewed’ reluctance of the Sri Lankan government’s dormancy in implementing the recommendations of the Lessons Learnt & Reconciliation Commission.

Against this backdrop General Secretary of the Patriotic National Movement Dr. Wasantha Banadara expressed these views with regards to similar decisions taken by India on previous occasions.

Leader of the House Minister Nimal Siripala De Silva also had these views to share with regards to India’s stance at the UNHRC.
