DMK Rajya Sabha MP Kanimozhi

DMK Rajya Sabha member Kanimozhi on Monday said there was ‘some improvement’ in the condition of internally displaced Tamils in Sri Lanka after delegation comprising MPs of DMK, Congress and VCK visited the island nation last month.

After the visit of the Indian MPs’ delegation in Sri Lanka there was ‘some improvement’ in the situation, Ms. Kanimozhi told reporters here.

“Over 50,000 IDPs had returned to their native places,” she said but added that her party wanted all internally displaced persons, now accommodated in camps in Sri Lanka, to return to their respective places at the earliest.

“This is not enough. DMK wanted all of them to be sent to their native places, besides a political solution, under which they can live honourably,” she said.
