Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh reportedly stressed that there would be no compromise on Sri Lanka’s promise to implement the 13th Amendment of the Sri Lankan Constitution.


Dr. Singh thus assured a delegation of Congress MPs from Tamil Nadu in Parliament House yesterday.


Congress Lok Sabha member from Cuddalore K.S. Alagiri, who head the Congress delegation said the delegates urged Dr. Singh to ensure that India voted keeping Sri Lankan Tamils’ interests in mind when political resolutions are taken up at United Nations meetings.


They said New Delhi must vote against the government when a resolution is taken up at the U.N. Human Rights Council in Geneva next month.
