Chennai: India must take a stand against Sri Lanka in the United Nations Human Rights Council session vis-a-vis the accountability and reconciliation resolution, political parties in Tamil Nadu urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday.

Pointing to news reports that Lanka was hopeful of India’s support at the UNHRC session on Monday in connection with the resolution, DMK president M.K. Stalin said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘silence’ over it has caused a big ‘shock’ among the Tamil diaspora and people in Tamil Nadu.

MDMK and PMK also sought India’s support to the resolution.

Recently, Sri Lanka expressed hope that India would stand by it when the UNHRC took up its latest accountability and reconciliation resolution.

This follows a UN report that called for drastic measures against those allegedly responsible for rights violations during last phase of the armed conflict with the LTTE (2009).
