The all party Indian parliamentary delegation which is currently in Sri Lanka is due to meet with a group of representatives from the united national party which includes opposition leader Ranil Wickremesinghe.

According to a senior spokesperson from the Sirikotha, a special discussion is to be held between the

visiting opposition leader of the Indian Lok-Sabha Sushma Swaraj & Sri Lankan Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe. The discussion which will be held at a leading hotel in Colombo will be closely followed by a dinner between the Indian delegation & those representing the United National Party.

The senior spokesperson from Sirikotha speaking to our news team added that the Indian delegation will be briefed on the steps taken by the UNP to solve the country's national issue.

Earlier in the day the visiting Indian delegation toured the Jaffana Peninsula where they held discussions with Governor of the North Major Genral G.A. Chandrasiri.

Subsequently their itinerary included a visit to the Nallur Kovil in Jaffna which was cancelled due to a protest being held in the area.

The protest was launched against steps not being taken to address the impairment being caused by Indian fisherman.

Consequently a petition was handed over to the visiting Indian delegation by a group of fisherman representing Jaffna's fishing community.

The petition was handed over to the Indian Delegation, aided by the intervention of the Deputy Indian High Commissioner in Jaffna.

Subsequently the Indian Delegation engaged in a inspection of the Kankasanthurei Harbour.
