BJP flays Sri Lanka for forced closure of UN office

Chennai, July 9

Parties, including the BJP and the CPI, today flayed the Sri Lankan government "for forcing the closure of UN office at Colombo by posing a threat to the lives of UN staff” through protests led by Sri Lankan minister Wimal Weerawansa and a group of monks.

Welcoming the decision of UN secretary general Ban Ki Moon, Tamil Nadu BJP secretary Pon Radhakrishnan demanded that the Sri Lankan government should be punished for war crimes against Tamils. The UPA should realise its mistake of supporting the military offensive of the island government and backing the international community, the BJP leader and former Union Minister said.

Pro-Tiger allies of the DMK and the AIADMK came down heavily on the Lankan government and said finally, the ugly face of the racist government had been exposed before the international community.

MDMK leader Vaiko, who held discussion with AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa at her residence today, demanded the closure of the Sri Lankan Deputy High Commission here.
