Thursday, 07 March 2013 - 13:36



Amid sustained pressure by political parties from Tamil Nadu, the Indian Government today agreed to have a discussion on the Sri Lankan Tamils issue in the Lok Sabha tomorrow.


Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath told the House, the issue is planned to be discussed tomorrow.


The assurance came, when AIA-DMK leader M Tham-bi-durai raised the matter during Zero Hour.


The Tamil parties are pressing the government to take a tough stand against Sri Lanka on a UN Resolution in the coming days.


In an attempt to mount pressure on the government, MPs of DMK, a major partner of the ruling UPA yesterday wore black shirts while attending House proceedings.


They also held a protest inside the Parliament House complex on the issue.


Meanwhile, Indian Prime Minister Man Mohan Singhe said that whether India votes against Sri Lanka when the top human rights body of the UN meets this month in Geneva, will depend on the wording of the resolution that the United States plans to introduce.
