Sri Lankan state has given such an impression that the question has been solved, 3,50,000 displaced Tamils in the final stages of war have been rehabilitated and brought in 'mainstream'. However, the reality is very different. The rights violations of Tamils continue to occur, they remain the second grade citizens in their own country. In Tamilnadu many of the civil society groups continue to take up these issues and pressurise upon the TN government and Indian government intervene.
In March 2012, the United Nations passed a resolution urging Sri Lanka to investigate alleged abuses during the final phase of war with Tamil rebels. India voted against Sri Lanka, under pressure from parties from south India. However, the strategic interests prevent any such action from the government and situation of Tamils remain far from better.
The National Alliance for People’s Movements (NAPM) Tamil Nadu has been involved with the issue in various capacities and have collaborated with Save Tamils Movement, May 17th Movement, group of Socialists and so on. In May - June this year at a meeting organised in Chennai a decision was taken that during the Parliament session a national meeting would be organised in Delhi.
