The TNA parliamentary delegation that visited New Delhi last week thanked the Government of India for its consistent interaction with the SL President in bringing about reconciliation and political solution through implementation of LLRC recommendations. The complaints of the TNA were confined to the lack of progress in the implementation of ‘constructive’ recommendations of the LLRC and lack of commitment on the part of Colombo in evolving an acceptable political solution. The TNA earlier rejected the LLRC recommendations but was later made to harp on them for non-descript solutions. The TNA has also refused attending Rajapaksa’s all party process for solution, without guarantees. But last month, the genocide-accused President on a Buddhist visit to India told TNA that the matter would be pursued after his return from India.
The TNA delegation met New Delhi’s Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh, Minister for External Affairs, Mr S M Krishna, the Leader of the Opposition Ms Sushma Swaraj, the National Security Advisor Mr Shiv Shanker Menon, the Secretary of External Affairs Mr Ranjan Mathai, the Joint Secretary Mr Shringla and other officials.
The meetings took place between 10th and 13th of October.
The TNA delegation led by its leader Mr R. Sampanthan, included parliamentarians Mr S. Senathirajah, Mr K. Premachandran, Mr A. Adaikalanathan, Mr A. Vinayagamoorthi, Mr Pon Selvarajah and Mr M. A. Sumanthiran.
The thrust of LLRC recommendations aims at the annihilation of the nation of Eezham Tamils. Once it is implemented in full, both the TNA and New Delhi will be relieved from the trouble of discussing any ‘acceptable’ political solution, and at the completion of the India-partnered structural genocide, there won’t be any burden on New Delhi to ensure “equality, dignity, justice and self-respect,” for Tamils in the island, commented new generation Tamil political activists in the island.
