Madurai: Slamming the Congress-led UPA and its southern ally DMK on the Sri Lankan Tamils issue, BJP today said the Centre should take all steps for the rehabilitation of internally displaced Tamils.
"The continued attacks on Indian fishermen has made a nuclear power like India become a laughing stock due to such attacks from a small country", a resolution adopted at the state conference of the party's state unit here said. It blamed the ruling Congress for such a situation.
India voting against Sri Lanka by supporting a US-sponsored resolution in the United Nations Human rights council for alleged war crimes was not enough and it should do more even as the country's efforts to build 50,000 houses in Lanka was not on track, the resolution said.
"This conference condemns the Congress-DMK combine which has so far not bothered about the Sri Lankan Tamils," it said, adding, the Centre should now take all steps for the rehabilitation of the Lankan Tamils.
