* Sri Lanka Tamil alliance lawmaker criticizes Indian role in the country's ethnic issue
Tue, Nov 13, 2012, 11:51 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 13, Colombo: A parliamentarian of Sri Lanka's major Tamil party, Tamil National Alliance (TNA) has criticized the role played by India in relation to the issues faced by the Sri Lankan Tamils.

TNA MP E. Saravanapavan has told parliament that India had double standards when dealing with matters concerning the country's Tamil community.

He has said that India should either support or stay away from matters related to the Tamils in Sri Lanka instead of playing double games.

He has observed that India had let down thousands of Tamils in the North and East who have shed blood to win their rights.

According to Saravanapavan, India's recent behavior in matters related to Sri Lanka has raised serious and reasonable doubts in the minds of the Tamil community on its commitment to ensure a political solution.

The TN MP has also questioned whether the campaign by members of the government calling for the abolition of the 13th Amendment is being done with India's knowledge.
