Acknowledging the DMK’s chief March 9 letter, Gandhi in her letter dated March 15, copies of which were released to the media by the DMK here, said: “I have been informed that the government is fully aware of the important issues involved and is engaged with all parties to find a just solution.”
“I believe the prime minister is writing to you in this regard. I hope that a suitable outcome is reached soon,” she said.
Amid increasing pressure from coalition ally DMK, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Monday assured parliament that India was “inclined” to vote in favour of a UN resolution over Sri Lanka’s “war crimes” and hoped it will ensure the Tamil community in Sri Lanka “equality, justice and self-respect”.
Karunanidhi was quick to welcome the prime minister’s assurance, describing it as “a victory for the Sri Lankan struggle”. (Ibn Live)
