Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa today assured a delegation of DMK and Congress MPs from Tamil Nadu that over 54,000 Tamils displaced due to the civil war there will be resettled in their towns and villages within three months.

The visiting President also told the delegation led by DMK Parliamentary Party leader T R Baalu that his government was committed to implement the 13th Amendment under the 1987 Indo-Sri Lanka accord.

A total of 14 MPs from DMK and Congress, including DMK chief M Karunanidhi’s daughter Kanimozhi, former Union Minister Manishankar Aiyar and E M Sudarsana Natchiappan, called on Rajapaksa here and demanded that steps be taken to integrate Tamil minorities into the mainstream.
