Jaya sees change of guard, plans to move resolution against Lanka

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalitha on Monday asserted that the Centre would not bring in a separate resolution against Sri Lanka during the next month’s United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) meet in Geneva for its involvement in war crimes.

 She predicted a change of guard at the Centre after the ensuing elections and said steps would be taken to move a resolution against Colombo.

Replying to the debate on the motion of thanks to the governor for his address in the State Assembly, she said her government was firm on the stand that those involved in human rights violations and genocide of Tamils during the final phase of war in Sri Lanka should be tried for war crimes.

The US-sponsored UN resolution had accused Sri Lankan military of committing war crimes in the final assault on the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in 2009.

Sri Lankan Foreign Minister GLC Peiris met his Indian counterpart Salman Khurshid in New Delhi recently and sought the Manmohan Singh government's support to ensure that the final resolution does not call for any international probe into alleged human rights violations.
