Indian Union Minister V Narayanasamy today said that only the Congress party is "genuinely" interested in ensuring welfare of the Tamils in Sri Lanka while other political parties in Tamil Nadu were shedding "crocodile tears" on the issue.


He said It is indeed shocking that the political parties who have not done anything for welfare of the Sri Lankan Tamil refugees staying in Tamil Nadu are feigning to be their champions and making criticisms against Congress and the party-led UPA government at the Centre on the Tamils issue.


Addressing a Congress Workers Meeting on the occasion of the 22nd death anniversary of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi here, Narayanasamy referred to the UPA government's initiatives towards rehabilitation of Tamils in Lanka, besides approval of railway and power projects in the island republic.
