New Delhi: Faced with angry protests from allies in Parliament on alleged war crimes against ethnic Tamils by Sri Lanka, government on Tuesday said a final view on its stand at a UN body on the issue has not been taken.

Members of DMK, a key UPA partner, and AIADMK raised the issue and demanded India's support to a US-sponsored resolution at the UN Human Rights Council and forced adjournment of the Rajya Sabha for the day without transacting any significant business.

"First of all, the date has not yet been fixed and the traditional position of India has all along been –- not only in respect of this case -– that we normally do not support any country-specific resolution," Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee told the House.

"But what view, on this issue, will be taken will be determined as and when the time is finalised in respect of the meeting of the UN Human Rights Council," he said as DMK,
AIADMK and CPI members rushed to the well raising slogans on the issue.

Left parties and a section of the Congress supported the Dravidian parties in the Rajya Sabha on the emotive issue.

He told the members that the government has already explained the matter in detail to Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa and DMK chief M Karunanidhi.

"The Prime Minister has written two letters to Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and Karunanidhi...If members want further clarification, I will request the External Affairs Minister to make a brief statement," Mukherjee said.

Earlier, as soon as the Lok Sabha convened for the day, DMK member T R Baalu demanded that the government support the US-sponsored resolution against Sri Lanka at UNHCHR, Geneva.
