A Bharatiya Janata Party led team, which is currently on a tour in Sri Lanka, told Jaffna residnets that India is ready to provide the “healing touch” but it cannot be expected to solve their political problems.
Interacting with a wide cross section of political parties and civil society in Jaffna, the leader of the six member team, Rajya Sabha member Ravi Shankar Prasad, said that India was aware that the Tamils of the Northern province needed a healing touch and assured them that India was with them.
However, he made it clear that Lankan Tamils should not expect India to solve their political problems.
He said these would have to be solved by the people themselves through participation in the domestic political processes.
He said India did not have a magic wand to solve their problems.
Prasad also made it clear that India saw Sri Lanka as a friendly country and would never de-stabilize it.
Meanwhile, the BJP members touring the country met with the representatives of the TNA yesterday.
Speaking to our news team TNA MP Selvam Adikkalanathan stated that the Indian representatives were notified regarding the 13th amendment and several other facts.
