India Will Do Everything To Ensure Lasting Political Solution For Lankan Tamils: Khurshid

India will do everything possible to enable a lasting political solution for the problems of Sri Lankan Tamils, Indian External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid said in Jaffna on Tuesday.

Salman Khurshid

Khurshid said New Delhi remained committed to ensuring the full implementation of the 13th Amendment to the constitution that devolves powers to Sri Lanka’s provinces.

The Indian Minister who met with President Mahinda Rajapaksa and Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe in Colombo yesterday then travelled to Jaffna for talks with Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran and Northern Governor G.A. Chandrasiri.

Both the President and Minister G.L Peiris referred to the Parliamentary Select Committee to decide on constitutional reform on devolution when Minister Khurshid raised the issue of the 13th Amendment. But both the main opposition UNP and the Tamil National Alliance are boycotting the PSC which now comprises only Government members who will have to reach “consensus” on the 13A.

    If India falls for this scam parliamentary select committee it will end up with egg on its face again. This is another delaying tactic of Rajapaksa and wisely the UNP and the TNA have refused to fall for this scam.

    Fully implement the 13th amendment, LLRC and APRC recommendations. There is no need for a PSC.

      Piranha,

      We have a situation where there are two parties to an agreement.

      One party doesn’t want to implement it, and looking for ways to sneak out.

      The other party need to be watchful.

      This is still a cat and mouse game.

      13th amendment is the outcome of Indian gun boat (Parippu sacks) diplomacy. It is an essential part of its rare foreign policy success story, underpinned by a bilateral agreement.

      The stupid Sinhala/Buddhists dream of doing away with it under the leadership of Gota.

      Gota and his followers have not learned any lessons from the history.

      When Hindians catch MR by his willy definitely his heart and mind will follow. When? Even the Hindians would not know.

      The only place MR can hide from Hindians now seems to be Sampanthan’s saree (Vestti).

          In other words you are saying to MR “You can run you can’t hide”.

    If India has to participate in the commonwealth forum, it should put forward condition that the Government of Sri Lanka lead by Rajapkase should talk to TNA and agree on the devolution packages before the conference based on the oslo agreement between Government of Sri Lanka and LTTE in 2002. The agreed proposals can then be put forward to Parliament. Otherwise India should bring another resolution in March 2004 to start the process of international investigation on war crimes committed by the regime.

    “Otherwise India should bring another resolution in March 2004 to start the process of international investigation on war crimes committed by the regime.”

    Being the main participant in the end game India will not dare bring forward a resolution against Sri Lanka that demands an International Investigation.

    The investigation may lead to New Delhi.

    Once a precedent is set in South Asia the West is likely to demand further investigation into Kashmir massacres.

    It is in India’s interest to block any International investigation in Sri Lanka.

        I have been serious all the time. It depends how you interpret my comments, context, circumstances and also the degree of stupidity overtly displayed by both Tamils and Sinhalese.

    Mr. Khursid,

    First fix the mess created by your party in 1987 in the name of 13A. Shame on you folks, having known provincial councils was big failure in India prior to Independence,still your party vociferously advocating this B.S called 13A. Why this hypocrisy Mr? Support TNA’s request of federalism if at all your party is interested to bring lasting solution to Tamils, through which I am sure your party will get rebirth in TN. Else it will remain forever buried.

    If India is honest, take back all Tamils in SL. Settle them in Tamil Nadu. They will be happy forever. Not otherwise.

      Fatima Fukushima,

      Yes, India Should take back all her chlidren, who originated from the Southern Indian Gene pool.

      That Include the Tamil and the Sinhalese who have Tamil and Orissa blood.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinhalese_people

      Studies looking at the origin of the Sinhalese have been contradictory. Older studies suggest a predominantly Sri Lankan Tamil contribution followed by a significant Bengali contribution with no North Western Indian contribution,[47][48] while more modern studies point towards a predominantly Bengali contribution and a minor Tamil and North Western Indian (Gujarati & Punjabi) contribution.[49][50][51] Multiple studies have found no significant genetic difference between the Sinhalese and the three other major ethnic groups in Sri Lanka (Sri Lankan Tamil, Indian Tamil and Sri Lankan Moor).[48][52][53][54][55][56]

      It is debatable whether the Sri Lankan population have genetic links to Far East Asian populations however due to their close links to North East India, there is a likelihood of some traces of East Asian genes.[57][58

        You make me laugh because you have not looked westwards never mind Amere because your info is always food for thought.
        Especially the Salagama have polygamist Arab blood. Polygamist Arabs ruled Portugal and Spain for 800 years and the currency was pepper corn from Kerala. The arabs told the Europeans harry potter stories about the location of the pepper corn. Once King Ferdinand and Queen Isabel got married they sent Vas Godagama to east in search of pepper corn and by accident they landed at Ceylon and found cinnamon- watch the spice trail on BBC video http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00yrvhj
        See the Mediterranean features of the Spaniards (British kings liked the birds ha ha) The Spanish/Portuguese captured south America by sending syphilis- addiction learnt from polygamist arabs. See the BBc video by David Attenborough’s only in southern SL the special polygamist monkey Now check who else has Spanish/Portuguese blood – Sinhala ulu= Spanish tiles; tuvaya=la tuvaya, mesa etc. is it because they had only amude? there is a high concentration of sinhala diaspora of housemaids there but no tamils.

    India is more interesting about India than Tamils.

    So, If Mahinda Rajapakse understands that and play it right, Tamils will be at the square one over and over again.

    What India want is Tamilnadu votes. IF not, India should have asked Tamils to come back home.

    At present Mahinda Rajapakse is the best Leader for Sri Lanka, and only the people in the UPFA can replace Mahinda Rajapakse and no one in the Opposition. Those who can lead Sri Lanka are in the Mahinda Rajapakse Alliance.

    Tamil are dreaming. That is all.

      Every government of India is essentially formed with UP and Bihar. Even with the exit of TN votes today the Congress (I) rules.
      India is interested in Baharat. To India LTTE is schedule caste like you Ravana. So please go to Andaman (Hanuman in Sanskrit) Islands to see who you are. Of course you may die of malaria so take precautions.

    Sri Lanka does not have any back bone and allow Tamils to play monkies ?

    ” The officials attached to the Ministry of External Affairs had to remove the Northern Province flag and the Indian flag from the meeting hall where Indian Foreign Minister Salman Khurshid and Northern Province Chief Minister, C.V. Wigneswaran were meeting, as they realized the Sri Lankan national flag was absent from the venue.

    According to sources, the venue of the meeting at Hotel Tilko in Jaffna, had only displayed the regional flag and the Indian flag and as soon as the officials realized the mistake, they had taken steps to remove the two flags claiming, if the national flag was missing, then no other flag should be there either.”

      “Sri Lanka does not have any back bone and allow Tamils to play monkies ?”

      When did Chandrasiri and Hathrusinghe evolve into Tamil monkeys?

      Tamils and Sinhalese are special species known as Lankies, human body enhanced by monkey brain.

      Next time around, the Hindians may be sending their drones armed with sacks of chilli powder or their surplus swamijis.

      Make sure you hide your women folks including your grandmas.
