India YES to Resalution but No to Amendments -DMK Angry



India was among 25 countries that voted against Sri Lanka today at the UN Human Rights Council session in Geneva. However, contrary to the government’s announcement yesterday, India did not move any amendments to the resolution sponsored by the US.

“The government has failed,” declared an MP from the DMK, which quit the government earlier this week for failing to take a strong stand against Sri Lanka over its alleged war crimes against ethnic Tamils.

The DMK wanted India to push the UN to accuse Sri Lanka of “genocide” and to seek an international inquiry into accusations of mass killings of Tamil civilians.
