TESO to Centre: Support US resolution against Sri Lanka

teso_jpg_1740771f  Reviving its demands over the Sri Lankan Tamils issue, the Tamil Eelam Supporters’ Organisation (TESO) on Saturday urged the Centre to propose an international enquiry into the alleged genocide in the island nation in the coming UNHRC meeting in Geneva.

One of the resolutions passed at the TESO meeting in Chennai urged the Centre to not only support the US resolution against Sri Lanka, but also propose a separate resolution at the meet against Colombo for an independent enquiry into the alleged genocide in the island nation.

It also referred to similar demands made by British Prime Minister David Cameron and Northern Province Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran.

The meeting also insisted that the Centre take steps to put pressure on the Sri Lankan government to give complete powers to the Northern Province and take steps to protect Indian fishermen, “who are repeatedly being attacked by Sri Lankan armed forces.”

Another resolution opposed the Centre’s stand on the Kachchatheevu issue, that fishermen from Tamil Nadu do not have fishing rights in the islet, ceded to Sri Lanka by India in 1976.

The meeting, headed by DMK chief M. Karunanidhi, was attended among others by DK leader Veeramani, VCK leader Thirumavalavan, DMK leaders T.R. Baalu, Durai Murugan, M.K. Stalin and T.K.S. Elangovan. (The Hindu)
