Recent developments in Sri Lanka a threat to Tamils – Stalin
DMK president M.K. Stalin yesterday (Saturday) said the overnight ‘mysterious’ changes in Sri Lankan government and former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s swearing-in as the Prime Minister of the country without majority had posed a major threat to Tamils, who had been denied their rights and subjected to repression.
In a statement here, he said it was the responsibility of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to clear the air, since the changes had taken place in the backdrop of allegations that RAW plotted the assassination of Sri Lankan President Maithiripala Sirisena and the subsequent denials.
“Mr. Modi should come out with a clarification on the allegation against RAW and the visit of Sri Lankan leaders to India,” he said.
He said Mr. Rajapaksa was responsible for the killing of Tamils and used his country’s Navy to attack the Tamil fishermen and his new position as the Prime Minister of the country had created fear in the minds of Tamils.
