Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa Jayaram has urged Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take steps to expedite decentralisation of power in Sri Lanka.

Jayalalitha presented a memorandum listing various demands to Modi when he went to her residence after launching National Handloom Day and the India Handloom brand there.

The meeting between Modi and Jayalalithaa lasted around 50 minutes.

In her memorandum, Jayalalithaa said India had a commitment to protect the Tamil minority community in Sri Lanka.

She said the Tamils' distinct identity and cultural presence in Sri Lanka, particularly in the northeast of the country, was the guiding principle behind the India-Sri Lanka accord of 1987.
