Subscribe to Oneindia News

New Delhi, Mar 18 (UNI) The CPI today expressed concern over the ''war against Tamils in Sri Lanka'' and demanded that the Government stop giving military aid to the Island country.

Raising the issue during the Zero Hour in the House, CPI leader D Raja said the people of Tamil origin were losing their lives due to land and sea mines laid by the Sri Lankan Army, which was quite against the international conventions.

He said there were reports that India was giving secret training to Sri Lankan Army personnel, which was disturbing and not understandable in view of the fact that Tamils were being killed in that country.

It was unfortunate that the refugees were coming to Indian shores and the Government was sitting quiet, he said.

Mr Raja demanded the Government should come out with a clearcut policy regarding Sri Lanka and provide an explanation for the reported training it was giving to Sri Lankan Army.

Other Members of the House also endorsed his demands.
