Col. R. Hariharan, a retired Military Intelligence specialist on South Asia, who served as the head of intelligence of the Indian Peace Keeping Force in Sri Lanka from 1987to 1990 has stated that Sri Lanka air force personnel who had completed part of their technical training at Air Force Station, Tambaram, Chennai were taken off the course and sent to Bangalore after Jayalalitha, the chief minister of Tamil Nadu, raised a hue and cry over their presence in Tamil Nadu.

Col. Hariharan also notes that there are four issues in Jayalalitha's Sri Lanka agenda on which she wants New Delhi to act: holding of a referendum for creation of Tamil Eelam, international action against Sri Lanka army personnel and political leaders for alleged war crimes against Tamils, pressurize Sri Lanka for a political solution to bring equity to Tamils, and impose economic embargo on Sri Lanka till it complies.

He also goes on to say that there is a possibility of some of her demands resulting in Eelam Tamil separatist aspirations spilling over in Tamil Nadu with detrimental impact on India’s cordial relations with Sri Lanka, as these issues fall in the domain of external affairs.

Meanwhile UNP MP Gayantha Karunathilleke expressed his views concerning Tamil Nadu’s constant pressure approach regarding the country.
