Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa urged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to act immediately on the unanimous resolution passed by the state assembly urging India to totally boycott the Commonwealth meet to be held in Colombo this month.

 

She referred to an earlier resolution passed by the assembly urging the central government to boycott CHOGM and "take necessary action to have Sri Lanka temporarily suspended from the Commonwealth.

 

Forwarding the resolution adopted by the assembly last evening, she said there was groundswell of public and political opinion against the central government's decision to send a delegation led by External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid to Colombo even if Manmohan Singh has decided not to go.

 

Meanwhile, Indian foreign affairs Minister Salman Kurshid and the delegation arrived in the island a short while ago.

 

The Indian delegation will remain in the country for 5 days.
