In the strongest reaction yet to India's contentious support to a US sponsored resolution at the UNHRC against Sri Lanka earlier this year, President Mahinda Rajapaksa has broken his silence by calling upon the Indian government to have a re-look at its dealings with its neighbours.

In a freewheeling interaction with Times of India at Temple Trees, President Rajapaksa suggested that India could be abdicating its leadership role in the region.

President Rajapaksa, in fact, did not fully agree with India's contention that it had helped tone down the resolution against alleged human rights abuses, saying that if India had continued with its support to Sri Lanka, there may not have been any resolution against his country at all.

He added the region looks up to India but India must examine itself whether or not it is doing the right thing in dealing with its neighbours.
