The memorandum drew attention to the violations of economic social and cultural rights against Tamil people in Sri Lanka and detailed the living conditions and deterioting state of education, health, economic and infrastructure sectors in the NorthEast.

IFT urged the need for an interim self-governing structure to improve economic social and cultural life of north east, and sought UN action on the situation of Internally Displaced People in the NorthEast.
