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. He told reporters here that "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).
