`No clear stand of Centre on Tamil issue at UNHRC`
New Delhi: Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy on Thursday accused the Centre of not taking a clear stand at the United Nations Human Rights Council when the US-sponsored resolution against Sri Lanka was put to vote.
In a statement, he said either India ought to have voted unconditionally with the US or it should have unconditionally opposed the resolution.
"If it had done so, it would have got appreciation in the eyes of the world and it would have been better than falling between two stools," he said.
He said the modified draft of the US was "eminently reasonable" and worthy of unconditional support.
"In an oblique way, the US draft is a victory for Sri Lanka since no one has called the human rights violation as state-sponsored," he said.
