Baratha Janatha Party leader Yashwant Sinha said India should abstain from the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting to be held in Colombo in November.

Addressing a meeting to express solidarity with the Tamil cause, organised by the BJP’s Tamil Nadu unit, Sinha said while there could be no Commonwealth without India, the big question was whether the Prime Minister would muster the courage to inform the Commonwealth Secretary General that India would not attend the summit.

Eleven pro-Eelam students were taken into custody by the police, as they barged into the Mihin Lanka airline’s corporate office at Trichy, Tamil Nadu.

The protesters, who had a sit-in at the Mihin Lanka office, said they wanted to draw the attention of the Central government to the plight of Tamils in Sri Lanka.

Earlier in the day, they burnt the effigy of Union external affairs minister Salman Khurshid who had aired the Union government’s view that accepting the Tamil Nadu assembly resolution calling for a referendum for a separate Tamil state in the island country cannot be accepted.

Khurshid had also opined that several Indian states did not share Tamil Nadu government’s stand regarding Sri Lanka.
