CPI hails UN resolution on Sri Lanka
CPI considers the resolution passed by the UN Human Rights Council as a positive step in restoring human rights in Sri Lanka.
Patna: CPI considers the resolution passed
by the United Nations Human Rights Council as a positive step
in restoring human rights in Sri Lanka.
Gross human rights violations took place during the
civil war in Sri Lanka in which thousands of Tamils were
killed, displaced and disappeared, senior CPI leader Atul
Anjaan told reporters quoting CPI`s 21st congress resolution.
The union government`s response to the Tamil Nadu
assembly resolution, demand by all the political parties and
human right activists throughout the world gave confidence to
the victims, he said.
"The UNHRC resolution gives an opportunity to the
government of India to persuade the Sri Lanka government to
dismantle the rehabilitation camps and allow all the displaced
people to return to their places of living and of their
choice as they are languishing in the camp for more than
three years for no crimes," he said.
CPI 21st party congress urged the Sri Lankan government
to take effective measures with a proper time frame not only
for rehabilitation but also to bring a human and political
solution to the Tamil people, which can create a conducive
atmosphere for peace and harmony among the people of Sri
Lanka, Anjaan said.
