`India should move resolution against Sri Lanka at UNHRC meet`
Madurai: CPI-M`s Tamil Nadu unit on Thursday demanded that India raise the issue of alleged human rights violations by the Sri Lankan government during the UNHRC meeting at Geneva next month.
"India should move the resolution against Sri Lanka demanding `war crime inquiry`," State Secretary G Ramakrishnan told reporters here when asked about the Sri Lanka-specific resolution on alleged human rights abuses at the UNHRC meet.
Both Congress and BJP were following the same economic policies which were wrong, he said. CPI-M was seeking alternative economic policy, and was organising "Por Muzhakka Yatra" (agitation and Yatra) from Kanyakumari to Chennai which would conclude with a rally at Chennai on March 19.
He also condemned the move to set up a regulatory authority for fixing the railway fares. "Such actions will not encourage public sector units."
He said the state government had declared all districts of the state, except Chennai, as drought affected, and it should provide relief to farmers and farm workers.
