Jayalalithaa blasts New Delhi supporting US-bailout of Sri Lanka

[TamilNet, Monday, 19 March 2012, 19:45 GMT]
Coming hard on Indian Prime Minister’s announcement in the parliament on Monday forenoon that India is inclined to vote in favour of the US-resolution at Geneva UNHRC, the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Ms Jayalalithaa on Monday evening described the stand as evasive and useless as it is not answering an earlier TN Assembly resolution calling for international investigation on the war crimes and genocide. According to Jayalalithaa, both New Delhi and the DMK chief Karunanidhi once again enact a drama similar to the one in the last days of the Vanni war in hoodwinking Tamils. Leaving aside seeking a commitment from Sri Lanka to report to the UNHRC on progress, the US-tabled resolution at Geneva leaves everything in the hands of Sri Lanka and harps on only implementing Sri Lanka’s own LLRC recommendations.

India is now secretly working on watering down the resolution further before it goes for voting at Geneva, informed news sources said.

Even though the resolution has been tabled, India ostensibly says that it is yet to receive the final text, implying its attempts to alter it, the informed sources further said.

The New Delhi Establishment openly protected the Rajapaksa regime from any international scrutiny at the UNHRC in 2009 and at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meet in 2011.

India was among the leading countries that resolved congratulating the Rajapaksa regime on the conduct of the war in 2009 at the UNHRC.

Until Monday India’s stand was that it had no history of supporting country-specific resolutions at the UN.

Speaking at Lok Sabha on Monday, India’s PM, Manmohan Singh said: "As regards the issue of a draft resolution initiated by the United States at the on-going 19th Session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, we do not yet have the final text of the resolution.”

“However, I may assure the House that we are inclined to vote in favour of a resolution. That, we hope, will advance our objective, namely, the achievement of the future for the Tamil community in Sri Lanka that is marked by equality, dignity, justice and self-respect," he added.

In 2009, towards the end of the Vanni War, when there was public uprising in Tamil Nadu, the DMK chief and then Chief Minister Mr. M. Karunanidhi announced a fasting campaign but withdrew it citing New Delhi’s assurances that Tamil civilians would be protected in the war.

The current Chief Minister Ms. Jayalalithaa was making an analogy of Mr. Karunanidhi’s announcement of a fasting campaign on the 22, if the centre was not taking a decision to vote against Sri Lanka at Geneva.

The entire resolution at Geneva is a farce and is a drama enacted by Colombo and its abetters in Washington and New Delhi, is the general opinion among Tamils.

Many Tamil organisations and political parties in the island, in the diaspora and in Tamil Nadu have openly denounced the resolution for not aiming independent international investigation of the war crimes and for harping on the implementation of Sri Lanka’s LLRC recommendations, the thrust of which is annihilation of Eezham Tamils as a nation in the island.
