India’s DMK tells Centre to act on Lanka

India’s DMK Executive today alleged that “atrocities” against Tamils continued even now in Sri Lanka, including a spate of arrests of students. It also expressed concern over recurring incidents of attacks on Indian fishermen hailing from the state.

“In this situation, the Centre should think whether the Indian Army should even now remain a spectator to these atrocities to play an important role, amounting to warning Sri Lanka, and in the UN and and come forward to uphold the rights of the rest of the Tamils,” it resolved.

A constituent of the Indian government, the DMK said this when it met under party chief M Karunanidhi in Tamil Nadu today, Indian media reports said.
