‘Ensure devolution of power’

Special Correspondent

SALEM: The 4th State Committee of the Federation of Indian Trade Union (FITU), which met here recently, has urged the Sri Lankan Government to immediately initiate a democratic exercise to ensure the devolution of powers to Tamils-dominated provinces and also empower Tamils with equal rights.

Expressing anguish over the unfortunate developments in the island nation, the State Committee insisted that India and other countries should take strong steps to usher in peace in the war-torn country to prevent innocent Tamils from getting killed.

The Lankan Government also could initiate dialogues with political parties in Tamil Nadu in this regard, it pointed out.

Saying that the labour welfare laws in our country were being violated blatantly, the committee wanted the State and Central governments to ensure job security to the employees of science and technology fields.

The problems being faced by the IT employees after the on-set of recession should be solved.

Besides this, it also insisted that their jobs should be safe-guarded and the issues confronting them should be sorted out.
