No mention of Tamils plight in Prez address:DMK

New Delhi: The absence of any mention of plight of Tamils in Sri Lanka in the President`s address today caused some discontent in UPA ally DMK which said India should support a US-sponsored resolution against the island nation.

"There was no mention of the plight of Tamils in Sri Lanka…there was no mention of the ongoing discussions on the human rights violations in Sri Lanka," DMK leader T R Baalu told reporters after the President`s address.

He said India should also support a resolution brought by the US, Norway and France. When asked whether DMK would support the idea of India abstaining on the resolution, he said his party will not support anything "short" of supporting the resolution.

Baalu urged the government to vote in favour of the United States-backed resolution, condemning human rights violations against Tamils in Sri Lanka, at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC).
