There should be no enforced repatriation: Elangovan

TNCC President E.V.K.S. Elankovan has told the Indian government that there should be no enforced repatriation of refugees.

He said: “In my opinion, if they (Lankan refugees) are willing to get Indian citizenship after having spent so many years in this country, we should not hesitated to give them Indian citizenship. Conditions are getting back to normalcy in Lanka to some extent. Once they completely get better, we shall send them back to Lanka if they are willing.”
