Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee, who quit the ruling coalition last year, has shown support for the government on whatever stand it takes at Geneva, where a resolution on alleged war crimes by Sri Lanka will be put to vote tomorrow. Here is her statement that she posted on her Facebook page:
"Our Party supports the cause of the Tamil brothers and sisters. We are deeply concerned about the atrocities meted out to a section of Tamil population in a foreign country.
Local sentiments and their causes sometimes become very critical. We are supporting their cause. At the same time, our Party follows a policy that we should not interfere into issues involving external relations with foreign countries. We leave it for the Central Government to decide on such issues. However, the concerns of the state and the sentiments of the people must be kept in view by the Centre, before taking any decision pertaining to foreign country."
