Next parliament will act on Lanka issue: Vaiko

The next parliament will pass a resolution pressing the Sri Lankan government for a referendum, said Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (MDMK) general secretary Vaiko.

 
Talking to press persons at Batlagundu near here on Monday, he said that the Central government could no longer push the Sri Lanka issue to the backburner as it had become a people’s movement.
 
“The present parliament will not do it because its days are numbered. But the next parliament will pass the resolution,” Mr. Vaiko said.
 
“We have been fighting for the Sri Lankan Tamils’ cause for a long time. Now the issue has snowballed into a movement, thanks to the involvement of students. Their relentless protest has drawn the attention of the world. The State government, in support of this great movement, had passed a resolution in the Assembly and forwarded it to the Central Government. A time will come when the Parliament will heed the State Government’s appeal,” he said.
