to Seema Guha How important is the CHOGM for President Mahinda Rajapaksa and his administration The CHOGM is important in that it signals a breaking of an attempted blockade of Sri Lanka and the Rajapaksa administration by powerful elements in the Tamil diasporaTamil Naduthe Western media and the international human rights community However it is a mixed blessingbecause there is also a spike in the criticism of Sri Lanka due to the holding of the meeting Sri Lankas higher profile has meant it is a bigger target If Prime Minister Manmohan Singh does not attend the meet mainly due to pressure from Tamil Naduwhat would be the reaction Will it be a turning point in bilateral ties There are no irreversible setbacks or irreparable damage in diplomacy and international relations That saidthe absence of the Indian prime minister would subtract from the space that India has and can have in Sri Lanka and would certainly damage its standing among the Sinhalese Such a glaring absence would also diminish the leverage that India can exercise with regard to the devolution process Indias capacity to help Sri Lankas Tamils would not be enhanced by the PMs non-attendance What are the views of the Tamil community on this Chief Minister Wigneswaran has written to the PM and invited Manmohan Singh to come to Jaffna when he visits Colombo Is that a subtle hint that he should attend the CHOGM and also go north The Tamil political community and perhaps the Tamil community at large is divided on this issue This division may reflect a divided Tamil collective self and a divided collective psyche CM Wigneswaran has struck a constructive note by urging the Indian PM to visit Jaffna This makes plenty of sensegiven that India has implemented a mini-Marshall Plan to rehabilitatereconstruct and uplift the people of the north Now is hardly the logical moment for India to retrench in its interaction with Sri Lanka Your comments on the latest video being circulated of the Sri Lankan armys atrocities on civilians after the military victory I think these are horrors that must be exposed and the perpetrators punished sooner rather than later It ishowevercrucial that one has the right perspective No fewer than 11000 Tiger fighters who surrendered or were capturedwere incarceratedrehabilitated and released If the general practice of the Sri Lankan armed forces was to execute captured Tiger cadresthen most of these captives would be dead I am sure there were horrors perpetrated by individual soldiers or even groups of thembut the empirical evidence shows that these were aberrationsexcessesexceptionsrather than the rule The horrors in the Channel 4 moviesauthentic though they may betell one side of the end of a 30-year story replete with horror Most

as it mustand there will be a settling of accounts according to the lawbut no imposition from outside can bring accountabilityjustice and reconciliation to a postcolonial society proud of its sovereignty and the durability of its admittedly battered democracy Sri Lankaa democratic statewill not submit to punishment for having liberated itself by winning a protracted civil war against one of the words most monstrous terrorist formations If ties with India hit rock bottomcan India hope to have any leverage with the president Let me put it this way: if India abandons its soft power instruments in relation to Sri Lankait will be limited to the projection of hard powerwhich will diminish its soft power in the region and in Asia as a wholeto the benefit of its competitors Now that a government is in place in the northdo you think negotiations on the 13th amendment could speed up Why have successive governments in Colombo been so reluctant to give a modicum of self-rule to the Tamils Why does the political class feel threatened Negotiations on the implementation of the 13th amendment presuppose a dialogue between the Colombo government and the Northern Provincial council Such a dialogue is not taking place India can nudge Colombo in the right direction and shepherd the process This is exactly the wrong time to disengage or engage at a lower level with Colombo As for the reluctance to devolvethe clinging to a centralisteven hyper-centralist model stems from the insecurity of having a hostile Tamil Nadu next dooracross a narrow strip of water There is an understandable apprehension of irredentism and centrifugal tendencies I would suggest that what is imperative is a reasonable sufficiency of authentic devolution to the provincial councilswhich would correspond to a middle path as commended by the Buddha How do you see the issue of devolution and ethnic peace panning out Are those opposed not worried that another armed conflict may be on the cards What is the alternative vision they offer to the Tamils Those who are opposed to devolution do fear another secessionist surgebut fear that devolution itself would enable and encourage such a surge I do not think theyre too worried about another armed conflictbecause they feel confident of their ability to handle it Their fear of secessionism makes them maintain a panoptic presence in the Tamil majority areas I think they are too narrowly focusedand fail to realise the lessons of historynamely that too little devolution can be just as much a stepping stone to secession as too much devolution The alternative vision the Sinhala hardlinersin the establishment and outsideseem to offer the Tamils is an utterly unviable one of assimilation or subordinate integration Pressure and hostility from Tamil Nadu and the Tamil diaspora will only retard the cause of devolutionnot hasten it Encouragement from influential friends of Sri Lanka such as RussiaChinaJapanSouth Africaet alcan push devolution

DGP Dr Parvinder Pasricha regarding possession of three flats booked by them Kamal Pasricha the wife of the former IPS officer along with her mother Kuldip Kaur approached the commission against a Mumbai-based builder Ackruti Nirman Pvt Ltd claiming ‘deficiency in service and unfair trade practice’ According to the complaint three different flats were booked in 1999 from the builder’s project in Worli by the complainants The order states that Pasricha was in government service in 1999 and his wife was engaged in the business of publication They had submitted before the commission that they were ‘in need of a big house to host guests visitors and common public’ and accordingly booked three flats in the building of the opponent (Ackruti Nirman) The three flats—two measuring 1400 sq ft and one measuring 1100 sq ft — were booked in the names of Pasricha his wife and mother-in-law Allotment letters too were executed in January 1999 for the three flats “The complainants wanted to convert all three flats into one single larger unit According to the complainants aggregate consideration of flat no 701 was fixed at Rs 35 lakh and the complainants on booking of the flat had paid Rs 35000 The opponents have issued valid receipt for the same On 15/01/1999 complainant — Mrs Kamal Parvinder Pasricha had paid composite amount of Rs 62500 towards flat nos 601 & 602 Thus complainants paid total amount of Rs 97500 for three flats in the year 1999” the order states Despite correspondence the possession of the flats was not given to them the complaint claimed It sought directions to the builders to ‘rectify the defects’ and hand over possession of the flat with occupation certificate for execution of proper agreements for sale as well as compensation and costs The builders through their attorney submitted before the commission that there was ‘gross abuse of process of law’ by the complainants They also told the commission that Pasricha had ‘coerced’ them into issuing allotment letters to him and his family members by ‘paying peanuts money so that opponents cannot back out from promise once the work is done’ They also submitted that allotment letters were issued by depositing only Rs 1 lakh He further said the Pasrichas were not ‘bonafide flat purchasers’ to be covered under the definition of ‘consumer’ of the Consumer Protection Act 1986 since they had bought the flats as investment to make a commercial profit The commission observed that the three flats were booked in 1999 by paying ‘Rs 97500 as earnest money’ “Since 1999 no diligent steps were taken for getting possession of the booked flats During the service period the complainants were staying in government quarters allotted to complainant-DrP S Pasricha It is informed that at present the complainants are staying in own residential house… It prima facie appears that the complainants have not followed payment schedule Nothing is on record to indicate that they tried to give the remaining payment to the opponent” the commission said in its order passed recently “…The complainants (Pasrichas) booked three big flats They booked more than one unit of residential premises…we are of the view that it amounts to booking of such premises for investment/commercial purpose As a result we are not inclined to admit the consumer complaints” the commission further said When contacted Pasricha said: “We had booked the flats over 19 years ago Though they were in three in number they were smaller units which we wanted to convert into a single duplex so that the entire family including my mother-in-law could stay together We had filed the complaint in 1999 but we did not pursue the matter after a settlement was reached” Vimal Shah the managing director of Akruti Nirman
