Refugees ready to return, but need a clear plan | Source: Thehindu

The overwhelming feeling among the Sri Lankan Tamil refugees in India is to return home, but the repatriation process should be well-structured with the backing of a Memorandum of Understanding among India, Tamil Nadu and Sri Lanka, according to S.C. Chandrahasan, founder, Organisation for Eelam Refugees Rehabilitation (OfERR).

Asked about Sri Lanka’s Northern Province Chief Minister >C.V. Wigneswaran’s appeal to the refugees to return home, he said the Sri Lakan Tamils wanted to protect their soil and end their refugee status.
