The Indo-Sri Lankan agreement drafted in 1987 is a sound framework that can be improved upon, say politicians and those who were involved closely with the political developments then.
 
For speakers at the launch of a Tamil book, it was time to recall the incidents that led to the accord and the later developments, including the assassination of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi and the death of LTTE leader Prabhakaran.
 
N. Ram, Chairman, The Hindu Group, recalled that Panruti S. Ramachandran, then a Minister in M.G. Ramachandran’s Cabinet had explained Prabakaran’s position to Rajiv Gandhi and that the former would never compromise on anything less than a separate state for Tamils.
 
He said The gap could not be bridged. Neither Centre nor State has supported a separate State.

"Even in Tamil Nadu, people have not supported the idea,” he said, recalling that during elections the issue was generally part of other demands.
 
Advocate K.S. Radhakrishnan recalled the events that led to India’s involvement in Sri Lanka’s internal strife and felt that it was a geopolitical issue that India could not neglect.
