India’s Janatha Party leader tells media :
Sri Lanka will come up trumps in Geneva
A large number of member nations will back SL :
India’s Janatha Party leader Dr Subramanian Swamy expressed his
conviction of a positive outcome for Sri Lanka in Geneva on the basis of
its outstanding feat of ending three decades of terrorism and
safeguarding the lives of its people.
Sri Lanka need not have any fears about the outcome of the United
Nations Human Rights Council sessions, since a good number of member
countries will back Sri Lanka, Dr Swamy said.
“Sri Lanka has been able to safeguard the lives of millions of
ordinary people by defeating terrorism. The countries appreciating and
valuing the strength shown by the Sri Lanka government in defeating
terrorism is ready to back the country at the UN,” he said in a special
statement to the media.
“There is politics in a good number of decisions taken at
international level by the Indian government. Those decisions are
clouded and unclear because they are politically motivated,” Dr Swamy
The Janatha Party leader said some decisions of the Indian government
in respect of Israel were naive.
“In respect of Sri Lanka, the majority are not in favour of the
American proposal and they will not back America but Sri Lanka,” he
said. While underscoring the fact that America acts purely based on its
geo - political interests, he said its Human Rights record is left much
to be desired.
Dr Swamy said no one needs to take seriously the utterances of the
DMK since it has nothing to show before the people of India.
Sri Lanka need not entertain fears at all about the noise made by
such political parties, he said.
