Tamil Nadu politicians are a part of Indo-Sri Lanka fishermen's issue; Modi
Indian Premier Narendra Modi intervention, which got President Mahinda Rajapakse to free five fishermen sentenced to death in a drug trafficking case, has forced all Tamil political parties on the backfoot.
While many of them have been trying to claim credit for something they could never have done themselves, Modi is getting back-handed praise for quietly getting them released.
Modi has effectively shown them up for what they are: windbags who are part of the problem, not the solution, to the issue of Sri Lankan Tamils.
