Centre should respect TN Govt`s resolution: CPI leader
Thanjavur: The CPI on Sunday said the Centre should respect the resolution passed in the Tamil Nadu Assembly asking it to stop treating Sri Lanka as a friendly nation and to slap sanctions on it while demanding a referendum for a separate Tamil Eelam.
"The Centre`s view that it need not respect the resolution is wrong," CPI leader D Pandian told reporters here.
"If they (the Centre) thought that the Tamils` issue was an internal matter of Sri Lanka, why did they extend Rs 2,000 crore for the rehabilitation of displaced Tamils in the island nation," he asked.
The Centre should respect that Tamil Nadu government was a democratically elected one, Pandian said apparently referring to External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid rejecting the state government`s resolution.
The Tamil Nadu Assembly had unanimously adopted a resolution urging the Centre to slap economic embargo on Colombo till the "suppression" of Tamils was stopped and those responsible for "genocide and war crimes" faced an international probe.
