India should not support resolution against Sri Lanka - Janatha Party leader


India's Janatha Party leader Subramanian Swamy has said that the center government should not support the "one-sided" resolution against Sri Lanka tabled at the United Nations Human Rights Council sessions in Geneva.

The Janatha Party leader has pointed out that India's support for the resolution at the UNHRC will make India vulnerable to similar resolutions in the future over Kashmir or Manipur for which according to Swamy extremist forces are already active in seeking to discredit the Indian government.

"Indian Government (should) not succumb to the machinations of human rights groups in the UN Human Rights Commission's meeting in Geneva by supporting an ill-advised resolution condemning Sri Lanka for alleged human rights excesses in its war against the LTTE terrorists," Swamy has said in a statement according to the PTI.

The Janatha Party leader has pointed out that the resolution completely failed to mention the LTTE atrocities against the civilians.

"The resolution is one sided and appears to have deliberately suppressed the horrendous human rights excesses committed by the LTTE over the last 20 years," PTI quoted the Janata Party chief said.
