Yechury's Letter to PM

I would urge you to ensure that the Government of India plays a proactive diplomatic role in discharging its commitment for a future for the Sri Lankan Tamil community marked by equality, justice and self-respect. Needless to add, this 13th Amendment was the consequence of the historic Rajiv-Jayawardene Accord. It is, thus, expected that India plays a role in the implementation of the provisions of the Accord, while strengthening the best of relations between our two sovereign countries

On Sri Lankan Tamils Issue

The Indian government should take the stand in the UN Human Rights Council that the Sri Lankan government should take up the implementation of the recommendations of the LLRC without any further delay. These include the necessity for a credible investigation into the allegations of extra-judicial killings, enforced disappearances and a political settlement involving the devolution of powers to the provinces.
