Petitioner K Stalin, a city-based advocate, submitted Minister of State in the Prime Minsters Office V Narayanasamy had recently stated that India was in the process of supplying two warships to Sri Lanka.

Stating that there was a strong sentiment against Sri Lanka among Tamils in Tamil Nadu he said Tamils were angered and agonised by the proposal to sell warships.
