Voicing concern that the Sri Lanka government was "not doing enough" for the Tamils there, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said he would ensure that they get justice.
"We are concerned that enough is not being done for Sri Lankan Tamils by the government there," the AICC General Secretary said during a brief interaction with a group of intellectuals in Chennai.
Gandhi said he would take up the matter with "appropriate persons" at the Centre and see that Sri Lankan Tamils got justice.
Political parties in Tamil Nadu have expressed concern over the delay in rehabilitation of Tamils after the end of the ethnic strife last year with the decimation of LTTE.
Last month, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi had said the presence of about 30,000 Tamils in camps for internally displaced persons in Sri Lanka was a matter of "serious concern".
