Reiterating the CPI’s demand for an international inquiry into allegations of war crimes in the last stages of the civil war in Sri Lanka, he urged the Indian government not to support Sri Lanka on the issue in the ongoing session of the United Nations Human Rights Council.

Mr. Pandian welcomed the stand of Chief Minister Jayalalithaa and Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam president M. Karunanidhi on the issue.

India should stop all military and financial assistance to Sri Lanka and press the Sri Lankan government for an early political settlement within a specific timeframe.

The CPI cadre will observe fast in district headquarters in the State on March 6 to press the demands, stated a resolution adopted at the council. It appealed to political parties and all sections of people to participate in the agitation. Expressing concern over the deteriorating power situation, Mr. Pandian said that power cuts were increasing, affecting all sections of society. The government should initiate all necessary steps to find a solution quickly and overcome the shortage. The CPI supported the commissioning of the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project.
