Chennai: DMK chief M Karunanidhi Thursday asked
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to take steps to prevent any backlash against Sri Lankan Tamils in view of India`s support to the US-backed resolution against Colombo at UNHRC session.
Thanking Singh for India`s support to the resolution, he
said, "News reaching here indicates that there is widespread
apprehension among the Sri Lankan Tamils about possible
attacks on them in view of the UN resolution."

Karunanidhi requested Singh to "prevent all such
undesirable developments through your diplomatic channels."
The DMK chief said that the global Tamils would also be
thankful to India for voting for a US-sponsored resolution at
the UN`s top human rights body.

Karunanidhi also sent a similar letter to UPA Chairperson
Sonia Gandhi.
