India working for all communities to find place in Sri Lanka: PM

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has said that India was working towards finding the rightful place for all communities in Sri Lanka.



Chennai: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has said that India was working towards finding the rightful place for all communities in Sri Lanka.

In a letter to DMK president M Karunanidhi dated June 11 - a copy of which was released to the media Monday - Singh said: "The government of India has consistently worked for all communities in Sri Lanka, including Sri Lankan Tamils to find their rightful place and live in harmony in that country."

He said India would continue to work for achieving that goal through a process of national reconciliation in Sri Lanka.

Singh was replying to Karunanidhi`s June 9 letter wherein the DMK chief had expressed possible steps to repeal the 13th amendment to the Sri Lankan constitution and cancel the proposed elections to the Northern Provincial Council this September.

According to Singh, the matter has to be decided by all the political parties in Sri Lanka while India will consider the implications and make its views known to the island nation.
