The Federation for Peoples Rights here today urged Chief Minister N Rangasamy to convene a meeting of all political parties and organisations to exert pressure on the Centre to support the US-sponsored resolution against Sri Lanka in the UN. Federation Secretary G Sugumaran, in a statement here today, said the resolution was being brought to condemn the human rights violation in Sri Lanka, particularly at the fag end of the war with the LTTE. Several countries are supporting the resolution and in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry, all political parties had put forth the demand that the Centre should support the resolution. Recalling the agitation by the law college students here yesterday on the issue, Mr Sugumaran called upon the Chief Minister to convene the meeting forthwith. If he remained ‘silent’ on the issue, the people, who voted for him, will never forgive him, Mr Sugumaran cautioned.
