Jayalalithaa asks Centre to boycott C’wealth meet

The resolution, ‘unanimously’ adopted by the House, also urged India to initiate steps to seek ‘temporary suspension’ of Sri Lanka from CHOGM till it grants equal status to Tamils living there. Chief minister J Jayalalithaa, who moved the resolution, outlined the relentless struggle taken by her government to protect the interests of Tamils in Sri Lanka and recalled the earlier resolution passed in the assembly in 2011, demanding economic sanctions against the island nation.

‘India should completely boycott the meet. There should not even be a symbolic representation from the country in the upcoming CHOGM and it should communicate its decision to Sri Lanka immediately’, the resolution said. Soon after the resolution was moved, Opposition leaders supported it.
