தமிழக மக்களின் விருப்பம் ராஜபக்சேயை போர் குற்றவாளியாக அறிவித்து விசாரணை நடத்தவேண்டும்.
The emotive Sri Lankan Tamils issue figured in the state assembly on 11-8-2010 with chief minister J Jayalalithaa insisting that India convey its protest against the “motivated” remarks of Sri Lanka defence secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa on the resolution passed by the assembly recently on the plight of Tamils living in the island nation.
In a recent interview to a private channel, Gotabaya Rajapaksa had hit out at Jayalalithaa for demanding that Lankan leaders, including President Mahinda Rajapaksa, be brought to trial for alleged war crimes. “This (resolutions passed in the Tamil Nadu assembly) must be for her (Jayalalithaa) to gain political advantage,” he said.
Replying to a special call attention moved by opposition parties, including the DMDK, the CPI and the CPM, Jayalalithaa said, “One suspect that Gotabaya Rajapaksa is encouraged to give such an interview because of the inaction of the Centre on the resolution passed by the assembly. This government will not rest until Sri Lankan Tamils are rehabilitated and live in conditions on a par with other Sri Lankans.” She assured members that her government would continue to take diplomatic steps and would not relent until a solution is found.
Recalling an earlier resolution urging the Centre to impose economic sanctions on Sri Lanka, Jayalalithaa said it was passed based on a UN committee report on alleged human rights violations during the final conflict between the armed forces and the LTTE. On June 8, the assembly passed a resolution demanding that the Centre take action to get all those responsible for largescale civilian deaths during the ethnic war declared as ‘war criminals’ by the International Court of Justice. It also demanded economic sanctions against the island nation to pressure the country into giving equal status and dignity to Tamils.
If, as the Sri Lankan government claimed, there were no war crimes, why were they hesitant about facing the International Court of Justice, wondered Jayalalithaa. When former chief minister M Karunanidhi observed a fast and organised a human chain protest demanding ceasefire of the war in Sri Lanka, the government there did not react. But now it has raised a hue and cry over the resolution passed by the present Government.
Whole Tamilnadu people ambition is that Lankan leaders, including President Mahinda Rajapaksa, be brought to trial for alleged war crimes
