Chennai: DMK president M.Karunanidhi Thursday termed the UNHRC resolution passed on Sri Lanka as "useless" and said India did not bother about the Tamils in the island nation.

Speaking to reporters here, he said: "The resolution has been watered down to the effect that it has turned out to be useless."

According to him, the resolution did not contain what the party had stressed on and wanted to be said.

Karunanidhi said an impression was created in the minds of students and others that something big would result from the US resolution but in the end, it was weakened.

To a query, he said: "I will not say the central government betrayed Tamils. But it did not bother."

Karunanidhi said the Tamil Eelam Supporters Organisation (TESO) will decide the next course on action on what has to be done in Sri Lanka.

Going by the happenings, he said the party has taken the right decision in exiting from the central government and the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA).

In a statement issued here, Karunanidhi said the DMK's decision to pull out of the government was inevitable given that the party's demands were not met as seen by the resolution that was passed in the UNHRC.

Karunanidhi said: "We got information that India did not propose even verbally any amendments to the American resolution. India supported a watered down resolution."

He said the party wanted declaration to the effect that attacks on Tamils by the Sri Lankan military were "war crimes" and "genocide" and a time bound probe would be held by an international commission on the happenings in Sri Lanka.

The party wanted a resolution to this effect be passed in the Indian parliament as well and the US resolution be amended along the identical line, but both did not happen.
